The training provided here is great, and the people you meet are amicable and friendly. I have also found the clients to be very good to work alongside. Promotion from within is encouraged and training and courses are provided to encourage this.
Expect to work long hours, regardless of what level you are working at. This is of course without any overtime or TOIL pay. Especially during the high peak season, this will be expected of you. The company could benefit from overtime incentives. The structure of the company could also benefit from being a bit looser, it has led to people leaving the company as they haven't found a way to progress that suits them.
They actively encourage promotion from within the company.
Not quite as pressured as some firms in this sector, but still fairly intense Find the corporate responsibility policies quite inspiring Great opportunities including a supportive approach to self-improvement, training for qualifications, study leave, etc The Company is well connected which makes it easy to network
Women under represented in some sectors of the business Not enough appreciation given for the effort that is put in, especially the number of hours that are needed to get the job done right
It is unusual to see a woman in a top client relationship role!
The leadership and the lack of integrity
Hardly anyone likes each other
This came as a surprise since I last worked at Whinney Murray (Ernst & Young) many years ago and only as a secretary - left in 1980 !!! Was THEN a good place to work - not as much stress as now I would imagine !
Long hours (only had electric typewriters then, no computers ! Worked in the Investigation Department which involved sometimes Saturday working .......they did provide sandwiches !
Not letting Accountancy Age know how many staff and partners worldwide they had !
-Big international firm which speaks very highly on your CV -Competitive salary -Good learning and training
-You may meet a few good people but most of them will play games to get what they want, even if that means stabbing you in the back -There is no work/life balance -The leadership are weak and give very mixed messages
They work so hard to try and pretend they're not like other big firms. They're worse.
