13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

It was quite expensive - although this is to be expected as the office is very central (near St Paul's Cathedral)

DId not have a chance to fully experience the London nightlife, I have heard good things about it though.

2/10

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

Deloitte employees spoke of flexible work times and a whole host of activities that they could pursue including charitable work (entitled to time off work)
