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.
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

I worked at Smith & Williamson full-time (More than 3 years)
Good work life balance here and better than average holiday
It was hard to fit in at first as a new joiner
