What are the best and worst things about your company?
Work autonomy - we set our own to-do lists and get our work done to our own schedule. Exposure to many different financial professionals; a great way to build knowledge. Free lunch and other great benefits. People are all very like minded and the culture is great. Being able to go out of the office and meet/socialise with clients. 6 monthly pay reviews.Often the job is like IT support. Clients sometimes don't appreciate our service and can be rude. Below average pay. A lot of goals - most of them are quantitative which doesn't allow for qualitative separations between consultants. It's easy to do very little and 'do well'; not all that challenging.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Good diversity in workflow, Great colleagues with a vast variety of nationalities and cultures.Many learning opportunities, not just from your colleagues but also from your clients who usually are people with many years of experience in the financial sector. A lot of chances to take on more responsibility. Good working hours and a lot of freedom in day to day work if you can handle the freedom responsibly. Lastly free lunches 4 days a week.No public areas where you can eat your lunch or just relax with colleagues. Lack of space as company is growing and taking in more people, however this will become better as soon as we expand our location to another floor in a couple of months.
