I worked at Nous Group as an intern (Less than a year)
- Nous has a strong, positive culture. Everyone wants you to achieve your best and leaders are accessible.
- The 'self-management' style means you have a high degree of autonomy with your work, even at a junior level.
- Better work-life balance compared to other consulting firms.
- Lots of small pieces of work which means consultants are often working on multiple projects at once. This may lead to higher rate of burn-out and result in consultants typically working from the office rather than the client site.
- Nous is strong in highly regulated sectors and government yet the private sector side is a lot weaker in my experience which leads to a lack of variety in the types of case engagements.
Advice to Management
- Continue being a great place to work that values all employees, including interns.
- Consider growing private-sector capability and focusing efforts on winning larger pieces of impactful work. Industry hires are strong but can sometimes lack the core consulting toolkit gained from previous consulting experience.
- Keep investing in the intern program and growing the Nous brand when recruiting at a graduate/consultant level.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nous Group (Melbourne) in January 2020.
Two telephonic and Face to face interview. I was told that this role would be a step down for my career and that they like my profile but they think that I will get bored of this job. I was surprised to hear that as this is not normal thing to say to a candidate who is taking time off from work and is coming to give an interview. I guess its upto me if I get bored from a job or not. My experience as an IT Support person was over looked by the second interviewers. Its all ready so hard to get a job in Australia.
