    Pros

    You get to work with a lot of talented, bright people. Working late hours builds a lot of comradery. Emphasis on training and continuing ed is great for start of career as well.

    Cons

    While there are benefits to working at a big company, I feel it is easy to get lost in the shuffle. You are also expected to work a lot with limited pay your first few years.

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits pkg comparatively among Big 4

    Cons

    Completely stacked with incompetent , skill lacking MBAs that rely entirely on the meager amount of qualified technical staff. Work you to the bone and then add 20 hrs+ weekly in admin BS. Mgrs regularly take all credit from savvy underlings to include accolades, bonuses and promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure all managers have a modicum of real technical expertise, particularly in tech expertise rich engagements. Should allow departure from heavy handed verticals to improve career opportunities.

  11. Great exposure, tons of experience
