    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Mazars full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Seniors management (partners) are supportive and easy to engage with.

    Cons

    1. Salary 10-20% below market rate. If you can make it to the big 4, don't come here. 2. Flexible working hours and working from home only apply to managers and up 3. Junior staff always get picked on when the seniors or managers are not in good mood. 4. Lacking of leadership qualities from seniors up. The culture is 'do what you are told to do'. Most time you get criticised for small things and not credits for good things you have done. 5. Traditional dress code policies. Big 4 and other mid tier accounting firms in Australia have ditched strict dress code policies to no dress code policy. 6. Inadequate performance management. Review and feedback is subjective and lacking of structure. 7. Unclear talent management plan for junior staffs. Promotion is based on word of mouth from seniors or managers, not from KPI. 8. Out of date technology.

    I have been working at Mazars full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Company culture is a breath of fresh air compared to Big 4. Audit teams are supportive and collaborative. - Management look to identify the strengths in people and recognize their merits - Varied and interesting work - Hands on approach to clients, looking to understand their business rather than simply tick boxes on audit file. Builds meaningful relationships with business owners - Prioritizes staff welfare, development and enjoyment. Excellent coaching and wide range of social activities

    Cons

    - Software and IT does fall behind some competitors - Missing aspects of standardization in the audit process which would improve audit quality
