the opportunity to go to college and learn something completely new from my degree, while meeting trainees in a similar position from other firms. the office is really nice and hours are flexible. all the staff i have met so far have been lovely. haven't really been there long enough to talk about any negatives!

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The opportunities to work with such a diverse range of clients and to take on different tasks is something that takes you outside of your comfort zone and puts your ability to the test every day which means you're learning all of the time and becoming a well-rounded professional. You could be on site auditing an academy school one day and back in the office preparing accounts for a building company the next. Each sector brings about its own challenges and reporting issues that will mean by the end of the three years you're ready to work towards becoming an audit manager or going to work in industry. The pressure to pass exams within two attempts in order to progress through the entire programme can be extremely stressful and brings with it a lot of worry. Passing exams to keep your job suddenly seems a lot harder than taking ones that count towards your degree classification.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Flexibility on working hours. We operate flexi time at Menzies which means we have a little bit more freedom when we are in the office. Exposure to different departments. Since joining Menzies I have had been involved in many departments which helps me find out what I enjoy doing the most. Clear progression. Menzies are very clear with expectations of junior staff, and will help when struggling and offer opportunities to those working over and above.Smaller Clients. Although this is sort of counter acted by the increased exposure, while studying you learn about all these complex situations and large companies which would be interesting to see in practice. However Menzies clients are usually SME.
