Friendly staff, good working hours, very social culture with lots of outside of work activities
Good people, great culture, everyone gets along, free to be yourself
The support and training you receive.
The culture - all staff at Pitcher Partners, fellow graduates all the way through to Partners are very friendly and approachable. While there is a hierarchy, it is less structured than I would have imagined in a corporate environment. This made the transition from university to work much easier.
You feel like a part of a family. There are also so many opportunities for learning and growth.
Remuneration. Very slow increases for large increases in workload and responsibility
The training can go beyond normal work hours.
While it is a corporate environment, I didn't expect to be at my desk quite as much as I am.
The long commute to the city, although once you're in the city it's fantastic.
The firm has constant training being run to advance our skills. Varying from basic skills like organisation to more specific accounting skills and refresher classes. Each month my division has a tax update session to learn the latest in tax rulings. You never stop learning here.
I do not know. Some people seem to be able to move up very quickly whereas others seem to take a while. I will try to make the most of the opportunities I am and will be given, and hopefully in a couple of years time I can confirm that it's easy if you put in the work.
Bike facilities are great. Office itself is getting a bit outdated. But with the move to the new building I am expecting this to change. I believe standard height adjustable desks are a necessity for all employees and I thoroughly hope that with the move to Southern Cross this will be provided. Furthermore, electronics (laptops etc) are not quite what you would expect from a company like this and I believe a much higher rate of efficiency would be possible if this were improved. Dress code is professional. Casual Friday only once a month, but that doesn't make a big impact.
