"I think that I get a decent wage that has been fairly increased at each pay review."
Graduate, Gatwick
"I have heard the pay is better at other firms but the level of support and training (ACA) we receive makes up for the lower pay."
Graduate, Manchester
"RSM offers a competitive starting salary with opportunities for increases through annual reviews."
Graduate, Preston
"It's ok at our level but supervisors' pay isn't fantastic. I think it should be increased to offer more of an incentive to stay."
Graduate, Birmingham
"It's enough to get by on and I know it will increase when I qualify. It is below the market rate for a firm of this size, though."
Graduate, Newcastle upon Tyne
"For a graduate job that requires no previous experience, and considering all the training is paid for by the company, the remuneration received is very good."
Graduate, Southampton
"It seems suitable given the work I am performing and my knowledge-base. Despite this, the pay appears to be slightly lower than competitors."
Entry level, Bury St Edmunds
"The pay is not as high as I'd anticipated but it's certainly fair considering the expense coverage for travelling etc."
Graduate, Birmingham


"The salary is satisfactory for a training programme and increases each year that you work for the company. There's also a bonus around Christmas time."
Graduate, Swindon
"I think the remuneration is fair and in line with other companies in the industry."
Graduate, Leeds
"I used to work in the civil service in the regions and I earned more there than I do now in London. However, given the level of investment in training I'm receiving, I suppose this is fairly reasonable and in line with competitors."
Graduate, London
"The salary received is average among other starting salaries in London similar to my role and the organisation."
Graduate, London
"I think it is a fair representation of what I do in my role, although I don't know what the going rate is in the market. RSM offers a very good remuneration package including extensive benefits."
Graduate, Liverpool / Chester
"It's around average for the market and the size of the company."
Graduate, Manchester
"It's reasonable, but I would be happier if there were better benefits included."
Graduate, London
"I was pleasantly surprised with the salary I was offered as it was in the upper band of what I knew graduates could earn in this industry."
Graduate, Reading


"I feel the pay is a good starter salary but by the time another review is due I feel we are worth more than we are paid. Especially in relation to how much work and responsibility we have in comparison to other offices at RSM."
Graduate, Newcastle
"The pay is appropriate for the level of work."
Graduate, Bury St. Edmunds
"Not bad, but not as competitive as the Big 4."
Graduate, London
"It's good. It would be nice if it was a little higher or maybe if there was a performance bonus in there as well."
Graduate, london
"In line with the market."
Graduate, Guildford
"The salary is competitive and there are a range of benefits that you can apply for such as pension, gym, bicycle etc."
Graduate, London


"The graduate pay level is in line with the Big Four salaries, and it is higher than others around the same level."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"Salary is very competitive for a trainee. It is not the highest that is on offer but, all things considered, it is a very good salary for a trainee."
Graduate, Glasgow
"Although the company pay less than some of the other big accounting firms, the career progression options are much higher."
Graduate, Milton Keynes
"Baker Tilly offers a good starting salary for a graduate and good prospects for the future."
Graduate, Stoke
"The pay for a young person is great. Also, the prospect that it will increase after you pass exams is the best motivation you can get."
Entry level, Manchester
"The pay is good for an entry level graduate job, with good opportunities for promotions and pay rises relating to performance."
Graduate, Newcastle
"The starting pay is around average for the sector, and there is good salary progression as you move through the graduate scheme. There is also a bonus scheme in place."
Graduate, Southampton
