  • There’s a lot of socialising in the offices and the open-plan layout makes the hierarchy feel minimal.
  • Graduates are able to work on a variety of high-value projects early on.
  • Employees are shareholders in the company and are therefore able to benefit directly from its success.
  • There is a wide range of perks on offer including generous pension contributions and many discounts.


  • There are graduates who would like more direct contact with senior managers.
  • The paths to career progression are seen as being non-transparent.
  • Some of the offices and technology are dated and in need of upgrades.
  • The salary, while fair, is not particularly competitive in the market.
