    I have been working at Concentra Analytics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The recruiter at Concentra does a fantastic job attracting extremely talented people with particularly collaborative personalities. After an investment round last year they had a massive growth spurt, but have just about managed to keep the startup vibe that makes them such a great place to work.

    Cons

    Many of my colleagues are extremely talented but paid well below what they could get in similar roles in London. Limited learning opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Having an innovative company culture that respects its employees is a good way to keep people on board, but decent pay is still important.

    I worked at Concentra Analytics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free breakfast Good location (Because those are why people pick jobs...)

    Cons

    A previous review says ‘great access to senior leadership’ but ‘no opinion of CEO’. I’ll let the reader read between the lines there. The CEO is always the smartest person in the room and rarely listens to anyone, including the board. His stubbornness and lack of focus is has serious ripples in the business and within the senior leadership team with rumours of multiple C-Suite departures. Many of the employees also...

    Pros

    Truly exciting and disruptive technology, genuine wow-factor Highly capable employees, internationally, from entry level to managers Flexible working High-profile, household name clients Office location Nice people, mostly OD Advisory team is awesome - great people and great culture Dev team is awesome - great people, have fun, variety of skills to learn

    Cons

    Erratic, impulsive management decisions Senior people pulling in lots of different directions "Software company" with all of the most senior positions filled by ex-consultants, so basically 0 software experience at senior manager level Senior manager level AND all board members are white male dinosaurs - very little diversity let alone diversity of thought Lots of senior men have been at the business for a long time...

    Advice to Management

    Hire some software people, preferably women or BAME people Look critically at the value the boys' club is actually bringing the business Management need to do some external learning and incorporate what they've learnt into the business Hire some younger, more hungry people in sales

      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at Concentra Analytics full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Concentra had a lot to woo outside candidates- lovely modern offices with largely friendly and smart staff who were until recently largely quite excited by the future after a major round of funding. Despite the promising start at the business it has not delivered on its growth aspirations to date with Sales missing targets driving current cost pressures.

      Cons

      Unfortunately the business has struggled to grow beyond a certain point in the last year due to a host of reasons, perhaps most critically a real problem at the executive level in welcoming and encouraging diversity of thought. There is a remarkable level of arrogance across many in the top team that Concentra knows best on the development and go to market approach of its core product, OrgVue, despite the results in...

      Advice to Management

      Heed your own advice on org design and welcome different views. Truly listen to what the market needs and wants from you versus getting stuck in your own bubble of thought. Diversify the executive team.

      Pros are nice people, free breakfast, nice office

      Cons

      It's ironic that for a company that makes Org Design software that they can't even organise their own organisation properly! A lot of bad decisions have been made by management regarding the company structure recently, and they have not been hitting their sales targets. Advice to management would be: trust the people that you hire to do their job and stop with the politics. Lots of talented people have left because of...

      Advice to Management

      Don't micro-manage, and hire the right people with the right experience to do the role - you should know this as you make Org Design software! OrgVue has potential, but it remains to be seen whether customers will stick around and wait for it.
