"There is a culture of teamwork that fosters relationships to grow and lead to better results."
Graduate, Gatwick
"There is a strong sense of cooperation and teamwork in the office as well as a good socialising aspect, from partners down to assistants. We participate in numerous fundraising activities throughout the year, whether that be as an office or as individuals, and there is a strong sense of helping out the local community. We run regular social events including staff nights out and parties, which means there are opportunities to see and chat to people from other departments."
Graduate, Preston
"Work really makes an effort with regular social events, from pub crawls and quizzes to crazy golf and escape rooms."
Graduate, Birmingham
"Everyone is really friendly and the open-plan offices ensure that there are plenty of opportunities to mix with other departments in both a professional and social capacity."
Graduate, Stoke-on-Trent
"The office is fully open-plan so everybody is integrated, which makes everyone more approachable. There is always a positive vibe in the office and often cake in the kitchen! We often have social events such as lunches for birthdays/new joiners and team away days etc. As there are a lot of students in the office there are also social events completely separate from work as well."
Graduate, Southampton
"There is a strong work ethic within the audit team with most people working beyond the units required each week. This is coupled with a solid team environment and enjoyment of the job. There are regular social events including occasional lunchtime trips out of the office for food."
Graduate, Southampton and surrounding areas.
"Everyone in the office is friendly and approachable and I have found it very easy to make friends from numerous departments within weeks of starting. The organisation also has social events throughout the year for people to get to know each other outside of the office environment."
Graduate, Birmingham
"There is a great culture at RSM as people from every level are always willing to support and help out. Partners and managers take time to get to know their colleagues. There is a great social culture both within the office and within RSM as a whole with plenty of events all year round including a sports day, summer party, Christmas party and department days."
Graduate, Reading


"Every effort is made by colleagues to help you settle in. The supervisors who you work with on audits are all very knowledgeable and keen to help with any questions you may have. Social events are arranged on a regular basis so there are always opportunities to get involved with stuff outside of work."
Graduate, Leeds
"The company is very sociable. The office itself is very welcoming and it didn't take long for me to get to know everyone. People often run socials such as a pizza and games night as an alternative to just going out for drinks as a team. RSM runs a sports day every year, which is a fantastic opportunity to meet with people from other offices in a relaxed environment."
Graduate, Swindon
"The structure is quite rigid. For example, there are role descriptions with associated competencies that need to be met before you can move up the hierarchy. Despite the more traditional hierarchical structure, there is an open approach to assigning work and graduates are often expected to work alongside directors or partners with no middle management in between delegating the work. This creates the feeling of a more flat and open structure. Socialising outside of work hours is relatively limited. There are some pre-arranged events but, given that the department is small and many of the team are based around the UK, these are usually on a monthly basis rather than weekly."
Consulting, Graduate, London
"Although there is a clear hierarchy within the office, everyone works as a team and is happy to help where needed. All members of staff are approachable and sociable."
Graduate, Leeds
"We have a very good culture in the office with everybody respecting each other and knowing who is in what managerial role. All departments cooperate with each other on a variety of tasks and there is a very friendly atmosphere around the office. The social side is good, with organised drinks every month and bigger events at the end of the year and at Christmas. The office has just started up a social committee so these bigger events should be occurring more often, which should improve the social side of working here."
Graduate, Liverpool / Chester
"Everyone is extremely friendly in the office and there is a nurturing atmosphere. We are a very sociable team after hours and everyone gets on well. Colleagues of all seniority levels will go out together."
Graduate, City of London
"There's a friendly environment. Graduate intakes are close but there's not so much socialising between different intakes. Lots of people are constantly coming and going and there's regular promotion so the office is very mobile with new faces around, which is nice."
Graduate, London


"Relaxed atmosphere during office hours. Management are very approachable and helpful. Very sociable after hours."
Graduate, London
"When you are in the office, it's nice to see people. The company has a strong focus on being chargeable to clients. That's understandable, but it can leave little time to develop yourself."
Graduate, London
"Outside the office it's good. People enjoy going for drinks and they organise some good days out."
Graduate, london
"Hours are relatively flexible as long as seven and a half hours of work are done during the day. The organisation is very organic and the culture largely depends on the office in which you work. By and large the culture is relaxed and welcoming while still being highly professional and driven. Interaction with partners on a daily basis is quite normal and people tend to socialise often. The hierarchy is a little more relaxed than what you might find in a large organisation, which means there is greater latitude in pursuing one's interests and demonstrating one's skills and potential."
Graduate, Guildford
"The office culture is open and friendly with various organised activities such as football and netball office teams to help networking between departments."
Graduate, London
"I work in a very sociable office and we are constantly planning social events that are very inclusive to all staff."
Graduate, Bristol
"Socialising among colleagues is good with plenty of activities going on. The management are helpful and very willing to help you if you are struggling or require time off. The Newcastle office is a very good office in general."
Graduate, Newcastle


"I always feel comfortable in the office. Managers, supervisors and assistants chat amongst each other, and we usually all go to the pub together for lunch on a Friday."
Graduate, Guildford
"Baker Tilly is very friendly, I know who everyone is in the department even though I haven't been on jobs with many of them, and they're all helpful there is a big team mentality. The social aspect of this job is also an excellent plus."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"Within internal audit there is a real teamwork spirit and if I ever have a question or need some help there is always someone there. There is a clear structure and hierarchy within the organisation which is great for an aspiring graduate like myself."
Graduate, Manchester
"The atmosphere is generally very relaxed, everyone is happy to help you when you are stuck and it is definitely a team environment. There is plenty of socialising outside of the office, often going for a long lunch on a Friday or out for a meal, drinks and clubbing on a Friday night, particularly if there is a reason to celebrate."
Graduate, Bury St Edmunds
"In the office there is a very supportive culture with staff always on hand to help if you are having issues with the work you are doing. Outside the office it is very sociable with opportunities to go for drinks after work and various social events such as go-karting and five-a-side football are laid on during the year."
Graduate, Birmingham
"It is a sociable department and you feel like everyone looks out for one another. There are a lot of opportunities to interact with your colleagues outside of working hours and there is a relaxed nature to the office in terms of dress and trying to enjoy your time at work."
Graduate, Reading
"There is a clear hierarchy in terms of the work completed but everyone is still incredibly approachable and willing to help or talk to you. There is a strong social side as well with many events organised throughout the year where you get the chance to mix with staff from all levels and all departments."
Graduate, London
"There is a consistent structure throughout the company in each department, and there is a good sense of team work across the whole office. There is a social committee that organises events, including the yearly Christmas party and sports day. There are often invites for last Friday drinks circulating."
Graduate, Gatwick/Crawley
"There is a great culture at Baker Tilly; the whole team works together well, so from day one you are made to feel part of the team from other juniors up to the partners. There is a real social element to the company as well, with regular events being planned to get to know both your department and all of the others too."
Graduate, Southampton
