    Pros

    Good exposure to clients
    Paid to train for ACA and given study leave

    Cons

    Undergoing a lot of cost saving atm due to falling partner profit shares. So less employee benefits, drinks and social events as there used to be. Bonuses being lowered and salaries frozen.
    Not compensated for long hours (i.e busy season)
    Bonuses are low

    Pros

    Very friendly. down-to-earth colleagues. I was constantly been challenged or stretched as a person so if you would like to grow as an individual, strongly recommend. It has a great atmosphere and everyone is ready and willing to help.

    Cons

    Perhaps, more awareness and opportunity such as the mini-internship so that more people know about schemes like this because I would strongly encourage everyone at University to at least do it before they leave Uni.

    Pros

    Secondment opportunities. Wealth of knowledge and expertise. Multiple learning platforms.

    Cons

    Veticale promotion is very challenging - few post available and a very high standard. Limited non native speakers and no outside learning materials and certificate available.

    Advice to Management

    More diversity and minority role models in leadership.

    Pros

    Leading lower tier Mid-Market M&A advisor
    Potential for large exposure to deals depending on how motivated the individual is
    Very flat structure with plentiful access to senior management
    Just started running the ACA for the Corporate Finance graduates
    Opportunity to gain experince in both M&A and I&G

    Cons

    Lack of any real modelling experience as an intern (and possibly limited even as an associate)
    Large majorirty of deals are with smaller, privately owned companies- benefit to be had on advising larger corporates

    Advice to Management

    Structure a formal, technical training course for graduates and interns - the ACA teaches only half the story

    I worked at PwC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Big company so job security
    - Nice benefits like private medical insurance
    - Nice offices with good amenities

    Cons

    - Generally a lot of the people tend to just be work focused and not people focused. There is no personal experience, making it a very quiet and stale environment.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the people around you.
