I worked at Saffery Champness full-time for more than a year
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.
Holiday entitlement is low, pay structure is quite uneven and not transparent.
I have been working at Grant Thornton UK LLP full-time for more than a year
I feel very privileged to work at GT. The staff are genuinely some of the nicest people out there. The business prioritise staff well being, mental health and diversity very highly. It without a... doubt the most flexible place I have worked - the agile working policy is taken seriously. Even before Covid I was working from home at least twice a week, those with families even more so.
Some of the benefits e.g. paternity/maternity could be better and more in line with big 4. All of the other benefits are good, except there is no car allowance until Director level.
