    Pros

    There is good ownership of work at Mazars- from day one I was thrown in at the deep-end. From planning to reporting, they gave me a lot of responsibility.
    Amazing offices in London- great view of the Tower of London and the City

    Cons

    Salary isn't competitive- hard to justify staying there given other company offerings.
    Not much of a tone from the top- very little culture.
    New people coming in were of a much lower quality- carrying a lot more weight

    Advice to Management

    Pay your staff what they deserve- and give management the flexibility to do this.
    HR are shocking and noone seems to know who does what- whenever I needed some help with something I was pointed ten different ways.

    I have been working at Mazars full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Diverse consulting projects
    Well known clients
    Very good team environment / culture
    Full support for proffessional qualifications
    Team is made up of very bright individuals, and managers are often experts in their fields - good examples to follow
    Successful and growing team
    Great work/life balance
    Approachable Senior staff / Partners
    Regular social events

    Cons

    1. Not flexible enough regarding the pay / additional holidays / bonuses
    2. Managers often fail to delegate work to junior staff efficiently, thereby leaving a gap in the learning opportunities given to junior members of the team.

    Advice to Management

    1. As this is a consulting team - and not an Audit team, it would be advantageous to have pay/benefits similar to other consulting firms (more flexibility) if you are to effectively retain talent.
    2. Managers should spend more time training junior staff / put in place systematic project training

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere for the first graduate year, minimal stress/workload.

    Cons

    Lack of communication, lack of graduate training format, minimal help provided to pass qualifications and finally, a low salary (this could have been overlooked due to the lack of workload in the first year, but as workload increases tenfold the salary looks ever more meager)
