Pros

  • The firm is non-hierarchical and has a very friendly culture.
  • The training on offer is well structured and trainees are provided with plenty of support.
  • The firm has flexible hours and employees are able to work from home.

Cons

  • RPC doesn't have the name recognition of some of its competitors.

  • The seat selection process could be a little more transparent.
  • Some feel that remuneration is falling behind that of competitors.
