    Pros

    The company prides itself of only choosing reputable clients who are not likely to be talked about negatively in the press. They have a lot of integrity, are very skilled, slightly old fashioned in their approach and outlook but they are in this for the long term catering for gentlemen and ladies with equally reputable backgrounds and reputations. Very lovely people, friendly environment and stable. Built some lasting relationships and friendships there. Ladies and gents of the business world you can count upon: a rare commodity indeed in this fast paced, hard core capitalistic and edgy financial world.

    Cons

    Slightly old-fashioned, not very progressive especially with the more admin type roles, still calling assistants secretaries and not very competitive salary.

    Advice to Management

    Much more could be achieved by very bright and educated assistants/PAs who could really take on more duties and help the business to evolve in line with other more competitive companies. This is a lost opportunity and lost talent. A shame.
