Are Analysys Consulting a good firm to work for?

does anyone know any juicy stuff about a man. consult. firm called Analysys, based in Cambridge specialising in the media/telecoms industries. Not stuff i can read on their website, but any useful stuff about the company culture, pay, hours, quality of training, respectability compared to other firms etc.

Would this be a good first career move for a recent graduate?

Cheers

I know a BA who works there. He does a mix of decent work (sometimes quite strategic) & very technical telecoms stuff. Hours can be a bit of a bitch. But then again he's also got to travel in Europe and they seem to be quite cool about homeworking. So in that respect it's OK. If you can try and join the London office.

Would also suggest you find out some more about Mason - the company Analysys have recently merged with and how this will affect the work you do. How this pans out will have an important bearing on Analysys consulting in the future.

Analysys BA

Working for a small firm means that you get responsibility very quickly...which is perfect for gaining experience. The people that you work with are exceptionally intelligent and most of the time thought provoking. The choice of projects in terms of location is generally given to you, for example you are given a choice as to whether you want to work on international projects, or whether you solely want to work in your home country. For me, the international aspect is a big plus...projects literally cover the globe...and BAs are in high demand. I´ve listed the pros so far, but for a complete view, there are some cons. Being a small company long hours are experienced - the traditional 9 to 5 working lifestyle is not followed - however this is true to most consultancies. There is no ´bench-time´ between projects (like you have at companies like Accenture), and whilst this does mean that the job seems non-stop, it is good for extending the range of projects on your CV. The hiring policy is tough but I do believe that it is worth it, specifically for the name on the CV. In terms of the integration with Mason, this is currently in progress. Mason is distinctly a different firm to Analysys, and only a few of the projects are jointly performed by both companies. The official line is that the combination of the two companies will enable a greater of scope of projects to be bid on...however, on a day-to-day basis the companies are pretty much separate entities, with different skills and specialisms akin to both firms.

Hi, nice to read your message!

Can you answer me some quetions? I'm interested in the telecommunication industry and Analysys would be really good for this specific reason. But, how much strategic work (I mean not only strategic but also finance-economic related and not technical-engineering) is required as part of the BA job? You said that Analysys is well regarded (The hiring policy is tough but I do believe that it is worth it, specifically for the name on the CV). Can you elaborate it and give me some insight on the marketability of a consulting experience focused just on a single industry? The chance of doing projects abroad appeals me. How is the policy about these projects? Time spent abroad, possibilities to spend the weekend back home... How do Analysys see the moment for the telecommunication industry? It seems good to me now, but being a very cyclical industry (at least in terms of money the firs can spend for consulting projects), does it affect the amount of projects, chance of careers, growth of the firm...?

Finally you said that the time spent between the end of 1 project and the start of another one is really short. I would say this s a good thing, at least there are always projects to work on and the firm goes on, but is it possible to work especially in a pparticular practice area? Is it seen as a bad thing that you want to do always projects in Regulation or Finance or whatever else..? Does the fact that most of the projects are chosen by BAs and not assigned mean that there is "a run" to take the project abroad or the project of finance...and so on (since they could be preferred among the others)?

Very last question: atmosphere in the office, ratio m/f and background of most BAs (I don't care if they come from the best or the worst uni or similar stuff, but more if they have an economic/finance background, rather than engineering or other....) and presence of different nationalities.

Sorry for the many questions.

Goodge

Interviewee to Analysys BA (#4)

Hi,

I have been invited for the final round of assessment and will have to do a presentation on telecom industry. Could you tell me a bit more about your interview process? Do you have any suggestions as to which area I should touch on? As I do not have telecom background, do you know how in depth my presentation has to be?

Thanks so much! Your help is greatly appreciated!
