Pros & Cons

  • A good culture where they value everyone contributions and provide grads with lots of client contact opportunities.
  • The people I have met. Everyone is so friendly and accommodating. It's not just a professional relationship you develop, it's also a personal one.
  • There are plenty of social activities and functions to keep employees motivated and happy.
  • Great opportunities for external training, development and networking. Diverse clients and range of tasks to complete.
  • They're really committed to helping us learn. If there is an area you are interested in, just say it and they will make it happen. If you want to develop, they will make it a priority.
  • The volume of work is high, lots of sacrifices to be made over weekends.
  • Salary is very low and discussions about pay are taboo. Very micromanaged as well.
  • Less exposure to big companies. We have listed clients but there aren't the brand name ones that the big 4 get to service.
  • It is unorganised and this results in other issues arising.
  • So far I have not come across anything that is worth writing about. We all have bad days but this isn't a reflection of the company.

They give you a roadmap and tell you what competencies are expected in order to be promoted. They then help you along with these in goal setting sessions and appraisals.

Culture

Culture
Everyone is valued and even as a grad people listen to your ideas and feedback. Great social culture with Friday night drinks and amazing social club events (e.g. Rottnest trip, cooking class, comedy performance). My division is really friendly with everyone being inclusive and encouraging new staff to join in on social activities outside of work. Within the work hour, people are helpful and happy to answer questions or teach me things I don't know, never making me feel like I am bothering them.

Diversity

Diversity
I've not felt once that anyone has been shut down or rejected or singled out. In nature, the culture is diverse as it is, but there's definitely a focus on acceptance and care.

Management
My mentor manager goes well out of her way to make sure I have the stuff to do and give me feedback. Managers give an appraisal after every job and you have regular check-ins to consider your goals and strategies with your mentor.

Recruitment
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? What do you want to get out of this position? Why RSM? Why Risk Consulting? If I called your references and past employers what 3 words would they use to describe you? The was also a question relating to why should they hire me?

The pay could be better to start with but goes up every 6 months to a year as you gain experience and work through your CA.

Training
Training programmes are very engaging and exciting. Trainers are always enthusiastic about what they are teaching. Soft skills are probably the most important skills I have learned in this training.

Work Hours
My firm is relatively flexible, so long as I clear it beforehand I can start or leave earlier or later and choose to take a shorter lunch if I wish to leave earlier. I am not expected to work over my 8:30 am-5:00 pm regular hours, although I often stay back 10-15min and finish whatever I am working on.

Sustainability
Using features like docu-sign, a digital signing platform really helps eliminate paper usage in the office. I've also notice motion sensor lights in the bathroom which help to decrease energy usage.
