    Pros

    The experience of working for a non-big 4 accounting firm is much more varied and gives you a good insight into all areas of a business.

    Cons

    The hours can be pretty bad and the salary, whilst almost competitive with other accounting firms of a similar size, is nothing compared to what you could be earning in industry.

    Pros

    The company is flexible for work hours, providing trainees with a helpful time in lieu system for overtime. This helps for getting extra time off for study leave. Very diverse client base which gives a trainee a lot of exposure to different business.

    Cons

    Lack of international clients in the Scotland area. No benefits as a trainee (pension etc..) Does not operate as one company across the UK. Many differences between office; AT THE MOMENT. New CEO Chris Merry is trying to change this.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to keep the young talent you have because they are all thinking of leaving !

    Pros

    - Good development of technical skills, - Good opportunities to develop specialist skills - Very good communications from Board

    Cons

    - Very poor remuneration packages - low salaries and few benefits - Poor strategic vision: too short-termist - Lack of opportunities to progress and move up the ladder: not meritocratic enough - Slow to respond to changing markets - too reactive rather than proactive

    Advice to Management

    Strategic vision needs to be more coherent, ambitious and focusing on the long-term. Remuneration packages are far too uncompetitive to attract the best employees. Investment in training and staff improvement needs to be better to improve skills and profitability.


  10. Amazing, great place to work.

    Pros

    I loved working for Tenon. If you work at a steady pace you will achieve your drafting target, work hard you over achieve and get rewarded for it. I found it easy to draft over the target a week and was left to my own devices to get on with my work which was lovely as I hate to be micro managed.

    Cons

    There is a lot of admin but the targets reflect this in order to give you time to do your own photocopying and preparing for posting the proposal.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the admin - increase productivity


  11. Sometimes oversold, but massive opportunity for right people

    Pros

    The company is very entrepreneurial. At present, 3 businesses are being integrated together. There is a long way to go until this is achieved and Tenon carry no passengers - but for those who can make it work, there is massive opportunity.

    Cons

    Benefits are not in line with industry averages. Internal competition within teams of advisers - there is no incentive to work together.

    Advice to Management

    Review the benefits package to attract the best people. From an FM perspective more needs to be done to tap into the accountancy practice clients.
