Hi,

I have an interview for Steria, they claim to being top 10 european IT service firm and have over 8000 employees but this is the first time i have heard of them. Is this my inexperience or are they quite low key in Britain? If anyone has any input on what they are like to work for it would be very useful.

Thanks

Russ

You may have known of them in the days as Honeywell/Bull and their various permutations. I know at least one consultant currently working for them who is very happy, on mostly public sector projects & with an excellent (and flexible) salary & benefits package.

Hope that you find out teh fit iwth your aspirations, they are certainly reruiting hard at the moment.

It depends on the division you join. I joined and left them within six months as did the other idividuals who joined with me at the same time. There seemed to be little if any strategic planning around the recruitment. Promises in terms of work didn't materialise and while the pay and flexible beneifts were good I spent most of the time on the bench and felt completely unfulfilled. Myself and another colleague who joined at the same time made the move in time but others weren't so lucky and I as understand were made redundant. They focus mainly in the public sector, with a respected presence in the Police sector. Think long and hard.

I'd be joining as a graduate, so I presume/hope that there would be some kind of rotation scheme at first.

Joe - can I ask what division you were based in, and whether you joined as graduate or experience hire. Also when you say promises in terms of work didn't materialise, does this mean that Steria never won the contract or that you were never given the opportunity to work on the contracts and gain responsibility?

Thanks

Russ

I joined as an experienced hire in an ERP division. The work was extremely patchy. The firm wasn't successful with the proposals they had submitted prior to joining so the work ended up being extremely patchy. I don't believe I had a full weeks chargeable work over the period I was there. In hindsight the senior management weren't committed to the practice which as new joiner turned out to be very frustrating and reflected badly on the organisation. They really should have had their house in order before taking on a batch of new hires.

If your joining as graduate then I would suggest you ask for the opporunity to speak to some of their existing graduate in take to understand the types of assignments and experiences they have been having. If this is your first job I think its worht underlying the fact the majority of you experiences are likely to be in the public sector areas.
