- 5.0FEATURED REVIEW2 Apr 2023Senior AssociateCurrent Employee, more than 1 yearLondon, England
Company culture is the best I have ever experienced. Family feel. Great career opportunities.
Occasional long working hours. Work/Life balance
- 2.02 Dec 2023Associate - OperateFormer Employee, less than 1 yearLondon, England
- free hot drinks machines - nice offices and canteens - decent benefits - good wfh balance - good socials - opportunity to meet great people - if you are lucky you can move to another line of service (leave operate) - if constantly on projects it can be good
- pay is not the best in any of the big 4 at a lower level - progression seemed very biased - heavy favouritism within operate, unproffessional biases, bad attitude and behaviour overlooked, heavily critisized on small things - opportunities only given to the same individuals (often those who are the most unpleasant or non-inclusive) - being on the bench not on a project for long periods and being critisized daily - arguably too much of a feedback culture - diversity within operate is bad- microaggressions/subtle racism felt - if you join within a group, be prepared to tolerate high school mentality depending on your luck - sent on random short term projects nothing to do with the role, eats into own weekends for travel (not counted as worked hours) and often unpleasant work or mistreated by managers1

Great on CV. Good exposure on high profile clients
In real terms, most partners and leadership dont really care about employee wellbeing aside from making fancy slogans. Raised mental health issues due to workplace to partners here and got nothing but a cold shoulder. Zero apology or explanation. The first question was- when will you submit the deliverable. All you are to them is a piece of machine. Now Im in another auditing firm, I am culture shocked in a positive way, I thought all audit firms were like this but turns out some are actually way better!! They brainwash you to thinking this is the only good career path in the world.5

The people are incredible and become some of your best friends! Tons of flexibility and great work life balance depending on your LoS.
At the end of the day it’s a partnership, meaning that profit for the partners is of the utmost importance and will drive every business decision. If you are able to make peace with this, and accept that most of your work will contribute to a partner’s salary and bonus, then fine. But many become frustrated with the structure and bureaucracy of the company, and get tired of very little pay and reward.1

Work with a great team but it's really down to luck. Benefits are standard. Great opportunity to work in multiple different areas and given loads of responsibilities.
Not a great amount of study leave which is odd at this level. Most other apprentices ask managers to let them study during work hours. Could be fixed by giving days to study

Great place to work. Role can be very busy but it’s flexible enough for you to manage your work/life balance. Perks are great and great office location.
End of fiscal year can be extremely busy and demanding. Maintaining a good work/life balance during this period can be hard but you can make up for it during quieter periods. Once you get in, moving up pay bracket can be very hard so make sure you negotiate well.1

- People I work with around my grade are very good people. - A lot of people with good potential and idea sharing. - There can be opportunities to move across to other teams where you want to be in however it is not as clear cut as made out to be. - Bonus isn't bad.
- It has changed drastically since COVID with regards to it's 'deal' now backtracking on its flexibility for people. - The job you applied for isn't what you will get, you may be benched or put in a very different line of work where they want you to be regardless of the role you have applied for. This is a main reasoning for Associates/Senior Associates be 'short' in their moderation's for promotion and why many of my colleagues have left. - Level of pay isn't 'competitive', you may be working for quite some time but someone can come into the business at the same grade from another company on higher money in the band.3

Looks nice on the CV
Poor system of progression, just a popularity contest, not assessed based on skill
