anyone heard about PIPC - seems they are recruiting ATM. trying to find out a bit more about them but not much information out there.

1. what is their brand and reputation in the marketplace? any sectors they are better/worse known in?

2. what kind of work they do, project support or delivery? any particular functionalities or type of projects they do (eg change, systems, PMO, etc)

3. who are their main competition and how do they rank against them? (eg moorhouse, project one, PCubed, etc)

4. seems they have been acquired recently, any idea how this might affect things?

5. what is the remuneration and bonus like (typical figures for say MC level)

6. Where do they typically recruit from, any particular big-4, industry, IT companies, etc?

any info would be helpful - if there are any current or ex employees would also be helpful

thanks in advance.

Mr Cool to ppm (#1)

I have worked alongside these guys and my personal perception is:

• Stonger in project assurance than in actual delivery.

• Their employees are generally very good quality and ex-big4 or better

• They stand their ground well – good principles.

• They have recently been acquired so some of the above may well change (no one seems to know exactly why they’ve been bought…)

• Negatives are that they have a very high “associates” ratio (I have heard as high as 70%) which means your effectively getting contractor quality at consultancy rates (go figure!)

• The senior bods are generally very, very well connected and most of the business comes from network sales.

• I’d say it WAS a good company to be a very senior person in, but the big financial option has now gone.

• It’s STILL a good company to join if you are junior to middle level and want the rigour and professionalism of a “proper” firm without the politics and facelessness of Accenture, EY, etc

• The worst way to join would be at a level where sales would be a major responsibility and you’re expected to break into new clients – not much of a differentiator in that instance. Probably better to take a risk on a similar sized firm that is still indie, hoping to cash in if they then get acquired…?

Just my 2p worth.

Anyone else have any thoughts - worked with/for/alongside them

Or anyone from Cognizant who has acquired them?

Take my mother in law to ppm (#3)

Are they not all ex-PA people?
