    Pros

    Friendly, professional, financially rewarding and offering enormous opportunities. Hard work is recognised and there is a direct correlation with financial compensation. There are no glass ceilings and staff take great pride in working for the Firm.

    Cons

    Very few, but low probability of reaching equity partnership and some senior partners confuse the advantage given by rising markets with actual ability.

    Pros

    Well known brand, good work life balance

    Cons

    Very little chance of moving internally or promotion, administration staff are not valued, all the emphasis is on progressing professional staff. Have a tendency to employ 'ornamental' staff!

    Advice to Management

    Look after the back office team, they keep the wheels turning!
