    I worked at Wood Mackenzie

    Pros

    Interesting domain. Great people, no jerks allowed. Some people with great intentions.

    Cons

    Many silos that don't work in tandem and no one at program level qualified to standardise them by process or principle.

    Advice to Management

    Get your hands dirty in the trenches to understand the real issues in each project, and proactively recommend approaches to exec. Do an audit of skillsets and get rid of those who won't train in digital skills.

    I worked at Wood Mackenzie full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very smart colleagues, interesting work, 5 weeks vacation, relatively decent healthcare. Not too crazy in terms of travel.

    Cons

    Experience can vary a lot depending on who you are working with, very few opportunities for growth, toxic work environment, absolutely no planning at the top of the organization, deficient leadership. Compensation is low compared to other consulting firms .

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring from outside and promote your people. Pointless to promote someone when they are about to leave. People at VP and director levels have been promoted but lack either people or managerial skills. They might bring work but the cost of loosing people to these bad apples offset whatever work they bring in.
