Most Helpful Positive Review

Current employee - Manager

Excellent reputation among our clients. Probably the best firm if you want consultants that embed with (rather than take over) a client's team and offer superior implementation and measurable impact.

Most Helpful Critical Review

Current employee - Manager

Entrepreneurial spirit. Open-minded people who care for each other; small teams helps. People are empowered to shape the firm, even if they are an Associate. Few hierarchy levels. 360 degrees feedback. Associate work on projects as well as internal initiatives (business development, recruiting, own initiatives), giving them more breadth.

Current employee - Manager

Entrepreneurial culture. Small teams & great colleagues. You'll get the chance to work with extremely smart people, most of them ex-McKinsey. Empowerment to pro-actively shape the future of the firm. Good working hours & salary.

High quality provider of independent professionals (most of them top-tier ex-consultant combined with line experience). Strong market reputation, esp. in many pharma, agribusiness companies.

Current employee - Senior Associate/Consultant

The culture is humble, super flat and empowering.

Current employee - Principal/VP/Director

With its entrepreneurial and international culture, a-connect is a truly dynamic place to work. The global team consists of less than 50 full-time employees, many of whom have top-tier consulting experience and a passion for problem-solving as well as business development. The company has an extremely targeted and selective hiring strategy – everyone in the team is here for a clear reason. I have never worked in a company where I had similar opportunities to tackle challenging business problems on a daily basis for clients, all with an extremely intelligent group of colleagues and consultants. a-connect’s client portfolio is quite diverse, ranging from the world’s leading financial institutions to life sciences companies, FMCG players and agribusiness firms. This makes for an interesting mix of project opportunities, as well as the chance to specialize in a core industry. For youngsters, a-connect offers a unique opportunity to work with top consultants on client projects, while also driving internal growth initiatives. Many Associates are primarily deployed to support complex client projects, and have also been tasked to open offices in other corners of the globe. a-connect’s flat hierarchy allows Associates and Project Managers to gain direct exposure to senior executives, working hand in hand with client teams and presenting their findings at key meetings. Overall, an inspiring place to work that provides ample room for personal growth and entrepreneurial drive.

Pros: With its entrepreneurial and international culture, a-connect is a truly dynamic place to work. The global team consists of less than 50 full-time employees, many of whom have top-tier consulting experience and a passion for problem-solving as well as business development. The environment is extremely dynamic, but also performance-driven and delivery-focused.

Brand is not strong enough in the industry.

Current employee - Principal/VP/Director

a-connect is a great place for people (especially young professionals) who want to combine building their consulting toolkit, with business development activities and entrepreneurial spirit right from the start. Compared to other consulting firms you are part not only of the project delivery, but experience the whole business cycle of a consulting firm and have the opportunity to learn and grow very fast not only as a consultant but also as a business builder, taking on internal responsibilities early on. Due to the lean and non-hierarchical organization, a-connect even after 14 years of existence still feels like a global family with great colleagues who show drive and commitment every day to bring the firm forward.

Current employee - Principal/VP/Director

At a-connect we like to call ourselves the home for global entrepreneurs - and you can feel that. Due to the business model we have a lean but global team of around 40 fixed employees that collaborate daily across hubs and regions. Everyone has responsibilities beyond her and his key role and drives the business forward through internal initiatives and can really make a difference to the success of the company. Everyone has the possibility to acquire company shares, so we all fell like owners of the company and act as entrepreneurs ourselves. Due to the size it still after 14 years feels like a global family. We have a highly transparent and collaborative culture, are very result and performance focused while giving people the freedom and opportunity to grow.

Current employee - Principal/VP/Director

a-connect is still a niche player compared to the big traditional consultancy firms. But we have build a strong brand and reputation in our key industries and clients. They see us as there partner of choice when it comes to driving complex, global and time-critical projects to success. Due to our model we have the ability to act very fast (from inquiry to project start), be super flexible on the solution (from turn-key solution to single expert staffing) and focus on bringing real impact to the client (as we call it: From PowerPoint to the bottom line). With our clear focus on a few selected industries and experienced Partners (Ex-Consultants with Line Management Experience in these industries) our clients see us as real sparring partners that have their best interests in mind, rather than just trying to win the next project.

Current employee - Manager

Entrepreneurial mindset, flat hierarchy, absolutely no "face time" involved, focus on performance, and great flexibility to organize your time and execute your responsibilities.

Current employee - Manager

Entrepreneurial work culture. You will be able to present and drive firm shaping initiatives with full top-management support. Performance focus: Absolutely no "face time". The focus is on how you perform with clients, not on how much time you spend in your chair at the office. Total flexibility: You manage your work, your time and your objectives. You manage your relation with the client. You are given total flexibility to manage your time and coordinate work. Ownership focus: From the very beginning you are can buy shares of the company and thus benefit of its growth and returns. MBA graduates are given stock ownership right-away as part of their sign-on bonus.

Entrepreneurship is at the heart of the a-connect culture. We often practice asking for forgiveness rather than permission.
