What are the best and worst things about your company?
Very little micro management, we have targets but the style you adopt to reach those targets is entirely up to you. Consultants within my department work in very different ways. You gain access to clients almost immediately upon starting allowing you to develop a relationship with interesting industry experts. You are encouraged to be creative and given resources to organise large events and department wide initiatives! Personally I would be more productive given flexible working hours so the 9-5 structure isn't favourable. Pay progression has been slow in the past 18 months for me, R2C "Roles to Compensation" is supposed to make pay more transparent going forward though this project isn't complete yet.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Freedom to work on a problem as I see fit, to explore my own ways of implementing a solution and completing the task at hand.On call work is required in some teams, and can't really be avoided.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The company and work culture in London is great.You might be able to get more money at other companies but I guarantee the work life balance and culture won't be that great.
