    Great organisation in which to learn and develop skills and gain experince of different business sectors

    Director (Former Employee) London, England

    ProsExcellent learning and development facilities, chance to test one's own capabilities and learn new skills across mutiple business sectors

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe other Big 4 are moving away from Partnership models, either shape up or ship out

    Good fun!

    ProsGood culture, staff were really friendly and helpful. Were told about the process of promotion and looked to be plenty of opportunities.

    ConsFairly intensive, lots of things to do and can be relatively repetitive, wasn't a whole lot of information about the company.
