    Pros

    Very welcoming and make you feel part of the team - initially.
    Great idea’s of allowing you to lead the way independently in building your own desk ( but constantly putting blocks in with fee’s and idea’s that don’t comply with market.)

    Cons

    Do not have knowledge of markets out with accounts and finance but yet do not take advice or criticism from people with experience out with their main industry.
    The team soon doesn’t feel that at all and colleagues are actually battling against each other venomously to be in the top spot.
    The atmosphere became draining and toxic.
    Lower/ junior consultants constantly bursting into tears in bathroom with pressure and constant thread of being let go if sales didn’t go up.
    Very competitive and false environment! Like their consultants to bow down and be quiet. Opinions are null and void if management don’t agree. Very narrow minded

    Advice to Management

    Think past your budget and big job title and actually put some time into developing your young consultants instead of instilling fear into them. It’s very demotivating from for them and unbearable to sit back and watch coming from much more reputable companies where I have never ever experienced the like!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Eden Scott (Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    2 stages, including a presentation where they lied about the clients they currently had! A mixture of competency questions, meet the team and discussing your 6 month business plan. In hindsight this last section has made me wonder why I didn't ask them about their business plan, if they even have 6 months left.
