"The offices and their locations that I have experienced are all very satisfactory with only the occasional issue of there not being enough desks for everyone. This isn't normally an issue. The dress code is smart casual (which means a suit) but there are dress down Fridays too."
Graduate, Reading
"The office space is very good. I have my own desk with two monitors and two laptops and it doesn't feel cramped. The facilities are excellent and include a nice cafeteria. The location is a bit of a walk from the main town but there is a free shuttle bus and mini bus that both run frequently. The dress code is business casual, so some people wear shirts and ties etc while others come in wearing jeans and a t-shirt."
Intern, Leatherhead, Surrey
"Some projects have people sitting two to a desk and overcrowding has led to a shortage of parking facilities in the past."
Graduate, Leatherhead
"There are lots of spaces in my office so the hot-desking system is usually never full. The location on a business park is good and we get free coffee, tea and hot chocolate as well as the use of a microwave and other basic necessities provided. There's a good canteen that's decently priced and has a good variety of food. The dress code is quite casual so I usually wear an open collar shirt and trousers. Senior and older members wear jeans etc."
Graduate, Leatherhead
"Parking can be tricky so that's something to consider, but I've never had to go elsewhere because we've completely run out of spaces. The dress code depends on the project you go into. Most are laid back but some offices or occasions may require a fully formal office wear outfit. I'd advise starting out more formal (unless told otherwise) and then see what your team and project requires from you."
Graduate, Reading
"I think the Edinburgh office could be improved. There are talks of moving the office closer to town since it's currently situated on the outskirts. The office space itself is a shared building with one of our competitors, which is not ideal, but we are separate enough that we do not constantly run into them. The facilities in the building are fine but, again, could be nicer. The dress code in this office is quite relaxed. Smart tends to be the norm through the week with a casual Friday."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"Our location is isolated and the office space is open-plan so can be quite noisy. There's no gym or similar amenities and the dress code is business casual."
Graduate, Leatherhead, Surrey
"The office spaces are good, with most people on particular projects having their own desks. People usually hot-desk if they often travel between sites. There are kitchen areas with coffee machines, microwaves, sinks and fridges. The dress code is generally business casual, with the need to wear smarter clothing when interacting with clients."

"Depends on the location. Dress code is smart."
Graduate, Leatherhead
"I spend most of my time on a client site and it's a nice office. The company's own offices vary depending on location but are, on the whole, new, shiny and clean. Most importantly they are spacious and well air-conditioned."
Graduate, London
"Open-plan and smart but can be more casual depending on client."
Graduate, Leatherhead
"The office location and overall standards are good. The only issue is with the lack of shower facilities, number of bathrooms and limited car park spaces."
Graduate, Bridgend (Wales)

"Dress code is business attire (shirt, shoes and trousers) Mon-Thu with dress down Fridays. We have a good office at Hughes Park, Bridgend but it has inadequate parking, (not enough spaces on-site)."
Graduate, Bridgend
"Typically the dress code in the office, (and when dealing with clients), is business dress."
Graduate, Leatherhead
"The dress code is project and location dependent. The general rule is to dress 'as the client dresses'."
Graduate, Leatherhead
"Some of the offices are really nice, modern buildings while others are more traditional. This is mostly based on location and needs of the branch. The dress code is smart business, although there may be casual Fridays depending on the branch and its management."
Graduate, Gloucester
"Some offices are modern and vibrant whilst some others are very dated."
Graduate, Bristol
