Run! This company has somany loopholes and is so unstable when it comes to management it is surprising that they are still in business. There are so many gaps in communication between upper management and its staff. If you can help it avoid them.

KeepDiscovering to tate m. (#8)

Hi,

I attended a Proudfoot recruitment campaign (in HK) before and got an offer (which I declined for family resons). They organized two rounds of interviews, the first one was with a project director and I was asked my backgrounds, qualification, experiences and skillsets. I was also asked a couple of topics in relation to consulting (I guessed they're projects they had accomplished). In the 2nd interview, the interviewer was a president (or something similar). Topics of the interview were similar, but at a more generic level.

It's okay but only if you are just starting out. Get experience, then run

Luiz to Anon (#12)

Well Proudfoot in 2008 in going through a lot of changes. The CEO got fired by the shareholders, and its parent had reorganised its sister companies. The new guy in charge is into more open communication. There is growth, there is international travel, but there comes a problem when you have been there a couple of years. There are too many old timers blocking your promotion so people leave. And the old timers keep mentioning the good old times before computers....there is still macho cultire of working silly hours and evewning training keeps cropping up rather than actually seriously training consultants. It's a sales dominated company with the consultants as an after thought which annoys a lot of bright MBA's that work there. Having said that, the projects can be interesting, and you can learn a lot. It's just such a shame that, as ecidenced by the high turnover rate, the HR management of the consultants is soo poor. Somebody needs to drag management into the 20th. century and explain the words life-work balance to them, let alone female friendly, talent management, etc etc etc

I've just finished interviewing at Proudfoot, in the São Paulo office. Question: how long do they usually take in getting back with an answer?

Regards.

Can anyone tell me what travel is like for latin america? Where and if all expenses are covered? Do they provide full family coverage for insurance or do you have to pay for additional family members? Thank you.
