"Every two weeks we have a 'review day' on a Thursday night, which is a free activity with food followed by presentations and workshops on the Friday morning. The activities can be anything from canoeing, visiting a driving range, chocolate making or a medieval-themed banquet. There is an open bar at every evening event but no pressure to drink if you don't want to. There are six subsidised weekends a year that all employees are invited to. There is a skiing trip and a 'relax weekend' as well as other themed weekends such as a murder mystery weekend. When you start at Newton as a consultant you receive a sign-on bonus and company car."

Graduate, All over the place
"We have several subsidised weekends away each year covering activities such as sailing, hiking, the Edinburgh Fringe and exploring various European cities. On a smaller scale, consultants receive free dinners and accommodation during weekdays and team dinners and activity nights for head office employees certainly aren't unheard of either."
Graduate, Kingston Bagpuize
"Private health insurance is available after two years in the company and the company cars are great."
Graduate, Glasgow, but varies from project to project

"The signing-on bonus is great and you are encouraged to take some time off before starting the job to have a break from work and enjoy spending that bonus! There are also subsidised weekends throughout the year that are voted on by the company."
Graduate, Nationwide - project work means we work on client sites across the UK.

Graduate, Variable - depends on current project
"Pretty much everything in the week can be expensed, including dinners, hotels and your travel etc. You get to eat out a lot. There are loads of holidays including a free ski trip with lessons and a bar for your first couple of years. There's also an open bar when the whole company gets together every couple of weeks."
Graduate, UK Wide
"There are four amazing (optional) company subsidised and organised weekends every year. We have a review night every fortnight where the company gets together for an activity with free food and drinks all evening before our fortnightly conferences. We get a company car and staying in a hotel during the week means that you will usually have free access to a gym or pool. Breakfast and dinner are also paid for while you are away."

"We get four subsidised weekends away a year, a ski trip that is fully subsidised for people in their first year and a chalet that anyone can use."

Consultant, Various UK locations

"Expenses are covered when you are away all week meaning you may get to Friday having only spent £10 of your own money - this leaves a lot for the weekend! Summer party is a weekend away and there's a great Christmas party too. Every two weeks the whole company gets together and does an activity on a Thursday night like zorb football or go-karting."
