Are you expecting a huge increase in numbers over the next few months? Everyone is leaving.

Shelf stacker to anon (#2)

Meet up with a bunch of motivated high performing ex-PA people with a chip on their respective shoulders? I think I’d rather sit at home crying and banging my head against a wall.

Hi Peter,

I've never worked for PA but would like to join the group so that I can build up my network a little - may I?

riper to Anon (#4)

Is pa really that bad - i mean was there until march and it was ok - no pressure to perform, if off the clock sit around surfing the net all day or 'work from home'. It was very easy actually. Produing turgid non-value adding powerpoint slides for some county council i not particularly difficult is it.

Needed a bit of a challenge so left. But also, how bad are things now what is total ytd utilisation 50% - still profitable i bet. PA, on the whole is an wasy place to work - the standard is not very high an the people are generally easy going

MAH to riper (#5)

With your description I have doubts that you were ever there. Or is there another PA that I did not see?

Another ex PAer to MAH (#6)

I was at PA for 2 years and agree with riper - I didn't have particularly demanding projects or managers. Also time OTC was easily spent at home or surfing the net in 123.

I was off the clock during most of the 2006 world cup and it was happy days. The problem with PA is that if you're not happy with your salary you are constantly chasing a bonus that invariably never beats 20%.

Ex-PA to Another ex PAer (#7)

Bonus figure is massively overstated by the company.

It's based on your average earnings for the previous year (not current), and is stated before deferred elements and both employees and employers payroll taxes.

The net effect is that a 20% gross figure usually equates to an approx 8% after tax.

Another way for PA Consulting to get on over on thier high calibre staff
