Current Employee - General Contractor

I have been working at KPMG full-time

Pros

Good offices, canteens, coffee, pay

Cons

Too busy, managers are not as friendly

Former Employee - Corporate Tax Senior

I worked at Saffery Champness full-time for more than a year

Pros

These were the best couple of years of my professional life so far. I had an amazing experience working in the London CT team who were very supportive, kind and professional. When I compare this to... my experience at Big 4, Saffery's comes miles ahead. The range of clients is very broad, I had an opportunity to specialise in their film and tv tax credits offering, which gave me a unique insight into the latest productions, as well as the opportunity to go to the Cannes Film festival and a major movie premiere in Leicester Square! Grades below AM get paid over time (or you can take it as TOIL) which is rare, amazing and extremely helpful for when you want to take extended study leave. The team is extremely capable and generous with their time. I received fantastic training on the job which helped me grasp complex areas of corporate tax.

Cons

Holiday entitlement is low, pay structure is quite uneven and not transparent.
