      Pros

      Great culture and a real opportunity to make a difference. The move to flexible working is a big plus and very well handled.

      Cons

      We could be more upfront about our strengths and position ourselves with more confidence in the market.

      Toxic culture

      Pros

      Wfh, flexible working hours and little overtime

      Cons

      Bullying culture. My team and manager were the most toxic, cliquey people I had the displeasure to work with. Emails and general communication was passive aggressive and they were also extremely rude and disrespectful in person. I have been gaslighted, ganged up on during calls and accused of doings things I never did. I have also been pressured to do things for other workers. Management favoured certain people in the team and there was obvious favouritism. They will not like you if you don’t fit their clique and make it known they don’t like you and have a problem with you.

      Pros

      Genuine focus on flexible working Range of projects on offer Welcoming of new ideas

      Cons

      Heavily dependent on where you work in the firm. Some departments have HORRENDOUS leadership - bullying, lip service paid to D&I, blocking talent development. Other departments are great - depends on the individual They tolerate appalling behaviour from individuals if they seem to be winning work - though often those people aren't really winning profitable work anyway! Too often the gloss wins out over the substance

      Pros

      Good benefits alongside flexible working

      Cons

      Poor team management and lack of direction and poor chances of progression. Feels like you have to be a favourite or in with the right clique to get anywhere.
