    I have been working at Haines Watts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've received a lot of support since joining and everyone has been very welcoming. So far, I've enjoyed working here; they are happy for me to work flexible hours which is fantastic and I feel trusted to get on with my work and to perform to a high standard. There are a number of offices and it appears that the potential for progression within the company is high.

    Cons

    As with any larger organisation there is a lot of decision making that takes place in other offices so it can feel like you aren't as involved as in a smaller firm.

    Advice to Management

    For a top 15 accountancy firm, I would have expected some of the benefits (eg holiday entitlement, employer pension contribution) to be slightly better than the basic statutory allowance. I would recommend looking at this if trying to attract talent from other accountancy firms (particularly top 10).
