Okay but probably not a career choice now!

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

I worked at Audit Commission

ProsDiversity; professional accounting training; friendly co-workers; lack of office politics; okay remuneration; good work ethic; internal staff networks for all types of people; good moral compass

ConsIt's about to be abolished; working there wasn't as cut & thrust as being in a firm; very-shortsighted - ie. employees think the local government world and public sector world revolves around them - it doesn't.

Advice to Senior ManagementSort out the bullying culture. You say it doesn't exist but it does. I have very close friends who have been forced out because of bullying management and noone ever acts. Though, most have them have now left the Commission with massive payouts.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Not just another audit body

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Audit Commission

ProsInteresting work, bright colleagues, worthwhile work.

ConsSeemed to become more concerned about compliance than purpose.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe audit practice needs to realise the limits to the value buyers place on audit. It's something they have to have. The practice needs to develop more things they want to have and sell them.

Audit Commission, poor working conditions.

Trainee Auditor (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Audit Commission

ProsThe Training package offerred is good.This is if you are passionate about working for the public sector. They pay you to do a CIPFA qualification that lasts for four years. Good pay package. Good work life balance. They also pay for your travel i.e. an oyster card if you're in London and company car if outside of London.

ConsPoor working environment, working in small teams, not meeting many of the other colleagues. Not so nice office conditions. Also, the CIPFA qualification is too long and should only last for three years.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdvertise the company's recruitment website more vigorously.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
