Great work/life balance

Great place to work if you value work/life balance and ability to work from home, which is incentivised to do at least 1 day/week. Great business but to much focused on audit rather than advisory.

Productive

Day starts early, sometimes even at bed time when a mail requesting urgent action comes in on work phone. Depending on the project, I may either be required to work at client site and travel or can be based at head office or able to work from home if I am just working there is a need to work late, meet deadlines. There is a lot of liaising, meeting, researching, analysing, reporting and creating hypothesis, graphs, charts and power point presentations. Some days I might be working on business development work identifying ways to impress and pitch a client through slides as a response to a tender. Occasionally I am required to collate databases for an internal piece around knowledge management. Co-workers: There are most that are friendly and approachable to some that are acerbic. All strive for high quality work and look out for their clients and their own interests. Hardest part of the job: assessment and deliverance of quality from various perspectives, communicating with a range of stakeholders and attempting to meet everyones' expectations. Most enjoyable part of the job: range of opportunities that different projects might provide.

Pros

Range of opportunities in various sectors for experience

Cons

Frequent travelling depending on project
