Good to train and learn in. Enjoyed my time, culture is good too. Unfortunately, not much of a work life balance and too much is then is expected of you.

I complete weekly audits, therefore a typical day at work would normally be spent at a client site. There is a lot of nice, lovely people within the company.

Great opportunities and great people, high quality output for clients and everyone heavily involved in ensuring quality and applying themselves to job. Comes at a price of work life balance and the hours if you are committed to quality make work life balance hard as a lot of hours needed and a lot of work and grey area on roles

Management top heavy. No progression, as everyone was either a student/junior or manager Expected to work over and above your hours but if you needed any time off then they were unreasonable.

The place is a shambles with power hungry, ignorant and selfish senior management. No progression...failing systems....no accountability.....4 managers left within the space of 9 months which tells you everything......Avoid! No backing from HR when the whole team raised points of bully tactics and stress from poor working conditions....

Typical day 9am till 5pm, Depending on the task you would usually work in teams of 4 to 5. It was a relaxed culture most of the times until the busy times happen which can get a bit hectic. Overall good job for people wanting experience.

Looking after mailbox and answering emails to the client facing team. Working within a team, answering queries and helping others when needed. Allocating work to members of the team, keeping updates on progress. I feel learnt to have the confidence in knowing how to respond to certain emails and giving them the correct information they need so has been a learning process as learnt a lot myself along the way. The workplace is a mixture of mainly young staff with some older generation working together as the office is expanding more and more. Hardest part is being constant with emails and prioritising of work and making sure forms are processed within deadlines. A relaxed office so makes the job enjoyable with a mixture of ages within the teams.
Pros
Free Drink: Fridays! sometimes other freebies

Very stressful play to work and really poorly paid. If your face fits you’ll do well but it’s too regimented to be a comfortable working environment. People friendly but again your face has to fit

Goal posts change a lot and a huge staff turnover in HR. HR is not respected across the firm but you can build your own personal PR and brand with your client group/

Nice workplace although at times I spent days doing nothing and being extremely bored. The first three months I did not do much it was very boring and stressful.

This company is stuck in the past, no flexible working, no talking, no eating at your desk. No PC’s you have to plug your laptop in every day and cannot even leave a paper clip on your desk or you are in trouble. You cannot leave your desk before your finish time to even wash your cup. Cramped space - 4 or 5 people to a bank of desks meant for 3 people. Salary is awful

Working via a third party contractor at BDO we were tasked with providing switchboard services for all UK Offices. However, a very difficult and insecure manager in the department made life very very difficult and morale was very very low. Glad to relocate when I did
