How is the work/life balance at Haines Watts?

Pros

Study was paid for and study leave was given in the run up to exams. Good work/life balance as overtime was rarely expected.

Cons

Little room for development, focus was on hiring external staff rather than trying to train and develop existing staff. Long term issue of managers being rude and lacking empathy, resulting in high staff turnover. Too many partners, associate partners and managers for size of company, leading to micromanagement of lower level staff. Appraisals were rare.

Good work/life balance as overtime was rarely expected.
