    "Very average"

    I worked at Mazars full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice location and on the whole nice people.

    Cons

    Benefits and pay are below average for this size of company. Managers and above recieve good benefits, pay and bonus but others get a £200 pa annum allowance which will not cover basic PHI & CI. Lots of young girls getting promoted who are sleeping with their older and married bosses.
    Very sales focused and even admin staff are expected to contribute and win work.
    Great if like me you need a job in the recession but I will be moving on to better pay. All the above has been recognised again in their "good place to work survey".

    Advice to Management

    Retain staff with better benefits and pay for ALL levels or waste your profits on recruitment fees.

    I worked at Mazars full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice immediate team members. Good views if the Tower of London. Recently launched a flexible benefit scheme.

    Cons

    Organisation structure was lacking, managers were patronising to the point of bullying (at least mine was; it got to the level that it made me leave). It seemed that they like to overwork you over there with as little support or training possible - proper deep end type.

    Expected to work loooong hours. 7am til 10pm meant no work life balance and i'm pretty sure Mazars is the reasons i'm ill these days...

    Benefits were a little on the sparse side with 20 days holiday as standard for non management staff...I don't know how i managed. They recently launched a flexible scheme which is a step in the right direction but when the flex fund equates to £16.67 per month (or £200 per annum) it almost feels a little like a slap on the cheek and you kinda want to write to HR and say "here you go luv, keep the flex fund, it's quite insulting really" - to put into perspective depending on your salary the £16.67 is equiv to 1 days holiday.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit from bottom up and nurture your staff rather than keep bringing outsiders in. Invest in training time.

    I worked at Mazars full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good starting point to your career.
    Lots of social event to integrate staff.

    Cons

    -Take business decisions personally
    -Poor promotion structure: friends promote friends
    -Lack of review and feedback from Management
    -Lots of 'backstabbing' and 'trampling' as people try to climb to the top at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the cons - fix them

    I worked at Mazars full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people, interesting clients, focus on quality output, fun environment, part of an international firm with a big reputation (although not in the UK).

    Cons

    Long hours with lots of times working away from home, limited promotion prospects, tatty offices, salaries and perks not as good as big 4.

    Advice to Management

    Get more staff so that existing staff are not to stretched and advertise the firm in the UK - No one knows who Mazars are!

    Pros

    Beautiful London offices.
    Good, very frequent appraisal scheme.
    Everyone is SUPER nice. It is always someone's birthday/engagement/back from holiday/having a baby cakes around.
    Easy to approach seniors.
    Expansion to the US with new merger.

    Cons

    Seniors have trouble communicating sometimes.
    People are nice but kind of bland, but what do you expect in accounting, it's hardly where the cowboys go.
    Work on varied clients but is essentially the same, reviewing accounts, but once again if you choose to work in this type of industry, EXPECT it.
    compensation is ok, just ok.

    Advice to Management

    ok
