I've already used the (poor) search facility on this board, and not retrieved too much useful insight. I'm also clearly not the only person looking for this information...

You are clearly a very angry little man. If you have nothing constructive to say please don't bother.

How dare you categorise me just because you're not bright enough to figure out how to use the search facility.

With intellect like that, you are ideally suited to the "high standards" of PA

What other offers have you got if you don't mind me asking and how would they compare to PA generally. Are the all in consulting? general consulting? specific consulting? Accounting consulting arms 'advisory' ;-) ??

Hello all.

Have been lurking around in the background for a little while, looking at some of the postings here.

It looks like some of my colleagues in other consultancies aren’t as busy as we are here in PA, and have time to attack reasonable questions. We’ve really been rushed of our feet, so few of us have the time or inclination to respond to this.

Firstly can I say well done on getting an offer PA Offer Girl! One criticism that I have of our recruitment process is that we turn away so many good people. So it’s a real achievement in getting in.

I’ve worked for other larger consultancies in my career, and have to say that although PA has its faults, I still think working here will be a very positive move for you. PA’s s people focus (mandatory minimum 7 days training per year, strong career development path), its very friendly and jovial atmosphere, and the fact that the firm is entirely owned by employees of all levels means that it stands head and shoulders above many others.

To address your concern on hours. Long hours are a reality in all consultancies. Clients are becoming increasingly demanding, with the result that we are often expected to put the extra hours in. But the hours here are no better or worse than in any other organisation I’ve worked for.

Our diversity initiatives are an attempt to address many of the “hygiene factors” that our consultants face. Personally, I’ve been working on clients in New York and in Eastern Europe over the past six month, which has been an absolute blast, but has resulted in long hours, and travel in personal time.

The firm is making a real effort to address these sort of issues, whilst maintaining the hard won reputation for professionalism, independence and integrity that PA has in the marketplace.

In brief, there will be occasions where you will need to work long and hard, but equally there will be times when you can get out of the office at 5. This is part of the richness of a consultant’s life.

Thanks and regards

Cheggers

Cheggers, thanks on two counts: firstly for being the first sane person to respond to an honest request for information, and secondly for providing a worthwhile insight into life at PA - much appreciated.
