    Current Employee - Consultant  in  London, England
    Current Employee - Consultant in London, England

    Pros

    I love the development opportunities. There are roles available in all sorts of roles. The internal teams are really strong in certain areas and it makes the company flow well. The processes and procedures are relatively clear and people are always willing to help. The office in London Bridge is great and a really first class place to work

    Cons

    There is a still an 'old boy' network to getting the best projects and good jobs. End of year moderation takes ages and is very drawn out. Internal IT systems etc aren't as joined up as I would like them to be. As with all lagre firms there is a constant level of change which could be managed a little better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more often on the things that matter - Be honest and communicate before you know all of the answers. Ask more advice of your staff, don't do it all on your own.
