    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Brewin Dolphin full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Brewin gives you the freedom to work in your own way, within reasonable limits. Career progress was in the past ad hoc but now more structured. Financial rewards are good but heavily bonus dependent. Working environment is largely friendly and relatively relaxed. Training for junior staff is good. Workforce diversity is improving.

    Cons

    Training beyond essential exams is piecemeal. Out-moded attitudes die hard, as do out-moded staff. Mid-career progress is slow. Internal accounting structure can create unhelpful internal competition, is limiting to the business and not conducive to efficient client recruitment. Pension contribution is below industry average. IT systems are improving but remain a great source of frustration.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Brewin Dolphin part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Nice working environment in a brand new office building - Good first time job or as a way to get a foot within the industry

    Cons

    - Little progression opportunities because nobody leaves once they're there. Obviously this shows that it is a good little number to get however not great for the guys at the bottom!
