    Generally satisfied

    Senior Associate - Advisory (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsGreat learning and development opportunities
    People a generally nice, driven, interesting
    Exposure to insipring leaders of huge multinational companies
    Great opportunities to build your professional network

    ConsCrazy hours
    Besides full-time client work you are expected to do a lot of business development
    Performance review and promotion process is very intransparent (despite them claiming the opposite), a lot depends on being friends with right directors and partners

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease salaries!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    (Audit) Good training, benefits and company expertise. Dull work.

    Audit Associate (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsGreat CV points, some nice and interesting colleagues, decent pay and benefits, good place to learn - there is a lot of company expertise in certain fields, chance to travel

    ConsLong hours, work can be dull, limited flexibility to progress quickly if you are able to - often find yourself doing the same tasks on each audit despite being comfortable with them. Sometimes audit contracts are too short in time duration, meaning there can be a lot of stress and pressure

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide further flexibility, reduce the hours

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
