Consultant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 22, 2017
The flexible, laid-back and seemingly open atmosphere and culture initially lured me to Chaucer but I quickly realized this was just a facade.
During my 2 years there working as an experienced consultant, 3 main issues quickly started to appear:
1)There's an 'inner circle' of old-timers who get preferential treatment and who will not hesitate to deliberately sabotage you to get ahead.
2)(Senior) Leadership team is pathetic, useless and just as dishonest as the aforementioned group of people.
3)There's absolutely zero money or time/effort spent on consultants. So if you're just starting your career, and don't have much experience this could be problematic.
Looking back, I now wonder how I've been able to survive this environment for 2 years. I just hope this review helps other consultants decide and hopefully walk away from Chaucer. You deserve better....
Poor ethics, back stabbing, leadership team isn't accessible or trustworthy, no career development, complete disregard towards consultants' project preferences, compensation is sub par, Etc.
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 31, 2015
Company is headquartered in London and leadership is disengaged with US operations. Houston area has no local leadership and US Operations is focused on Pharma in Eastern US. The entire company has high turnover and doesn't promote diversity hiring. Overall poorly run organization and seems to be in severe financial distress.
