    I worked at Smith & Williamson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with especially when joining the grad scheme, almost feels like being back at university. Plenty of social aspects and great range of work.

    Cons

    The work life balance is not good if you are a hard worker as you will always be busy. Those less diligent get away with not doing as much.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the hard workers.

    I have been working at Smith & Williamson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some great people that work at the firm and lots of training.

    Cons

    Very old fashioned systems, no online document management system for the non investment team (i.e. audit and tax), so endless paper trails

    Advice to Management

    Invest in paperless systems like the other top firms
