    Not perfect, but still a good place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexible scheduling: as long as the work gets done and you put in the hours, no one seems to care much when you come and go.
    One month of paid time off each year. During busy season they feed us dinner twice a week plus lunch on Saturdays. They feed us breakfast on Friday year round.
    Because the audits are smaller you get to work with more clients.
    Busy season hours are reasonable - usually 50-60 hrs/wk.

    ConsThe training is abysmal. Questions are not encouraged. Expect to figure things out on your own.
