    Good projects, lowest pay of Big 4

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

    ProsA lot of sexy engagements. Plenty of great people and subject matter experts. Good brand to the CV. Encourages professional development though sometimes unreachable due to massive workload.

    ConsShifting goal posts when comes to promotion. Pay scale is lowest of the Big 4. Not how well you do the job, but how well connected you are to a Partner.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to staff morale. Growth is good. Growth requires new hires. If current staff feel disadvantaged by your strategies especially when new people with less experience are brought in at higher grades, attrition of staff is inevitable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    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

    Politics

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat brand and some talented individuals good standing in the market

    ConsIt's very political within assurance some of the people will stab you in the back like a shot if it furthers their career. Also sales everyone is very protective over these a lot of empire building going on.

    Promotions only once a year is a joke as is the process itself, tiny amount of credit is given to your day job it's about how good you are at playing the game and kissing the right a!se

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe sort some values out and live by them promotions twice a year too

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Challenging - often not transparent

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLots of opportunity, but you are expected to work for it. DIfficult for me to comment having not worked anywhere else

    Conslong hours, people often don't deliver on promises
