A lot of strategic waffle but little evidence of it. The right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. Going down the path of all other consultancies with utilisation. Take the promises of the cool work you'll be doing with a pinch of salt. HR is hopeless, absolutely hopeless. You better be highly skilled going in as you're on your own. Coaching culture? Pah! Nice cafe though.

Risk Consultant (Current Employee) - Dublin
The company is nice, the office in Dublin is great, anyway the salary is not competitive, low perks, and the internal transfers like moving to another team or to another office location are very difficult.

Just chase their fees. No compassion nor understanding of the stress the financial recession placed on people. Full of young pups chasing credit. Not my type of company but synonomous of modern financial companies

Associate Director (Former Employee) - Dublin
This is a good place to work and to have a work experience.There are exceptional leaders in this organization and people getting promoted are very talented.Indeed, you are learning a lot, getting good exposure to certain industries and gathering fantastic experience. But it can become repetitive after some time.If you don't make it to senior level, I feel you will get a better work/life balance and a better pay in the industry.
Pros
Beautiful building, work location in city centre and facilities (Canteen, Gym and work stations)
Cons
Hard to progress
