Welcome to BOP ! You won't regret joining us. The sort of work you will do will depend on the level you've arrived in at. The atmosphere in BOP is very friendly and open, and you'll really have a great chance to bloom if you're up for it. Andrew Pav, our practice head, will usually take you for a lunch of Fish and Chips on day 1. I can't imagine a senior partner in one of our competitors taking time out to do that. Hope you're a sailor: our sailing regatta is on in the last week of September too, so keep your diary clear for that !!! Welcome aboard !!!

Chegs - Thanks for the speedy response! I'm very much up for job - found the people all through the interview process really clued up. I'm coming in at consultant level (after 9 years in industry). Fish and chips sounds good, in landlocked Manchester however, my only sailing experience has been a couple of barge trips on the Manchester Ship Canal!

Im still at university, and currently considering my options and am a regular viewer on this site and do have to say that Cheggers above all as sold PA to me based purely on his responses, openeess and honesty. While im not naive to join PA based soley on this, the firm does spring to mind everytime someone asks me about my opinion of a consulting form to apply to for a grad position. PA should utilise you more my friend in its recruitment process. Im interested in the strategy and marketing group at PA myself. Cheggers my man, could you please enlighten me to the culture, type of work and people within this practice and would you recommend it? regards.

SMP are a relatively small group in PA, but are likely to be subsumed into one of the larger practices over the next year, as part of what is called the BTG+ programme. This shouldn’t be a point of concern for you: it’s more about PA trying to grow critical mass in this area. Business in SMP is still relatively quiet, with most staff working on jobs in other areas, but they do seem to be growing, so you’re probably joining at just the right time.

Fair enough, Chuggers has convinced me, I'll join.

Seriously, on Monday I was offered an analyst position in IS Implementation ;)

See you all in September!

Hi Cheggers,

Could you advise me on the potential starting salary a consultant would have within the decision sciences team at PA (1-3yrs experience required)?

cheers
