    Pros

    Awesome Office Culture - many people are friends outside of work
    Career Path is Clearly defined
    Access to client facing work very early in your career
    Very competent middle management who does a great job of making you feel valued
    Friendly, collaborative environment. A lot of highly knowlegeable people who all work very well in teams. This is a key emphasis in their interview process.
    Benefits are pretty good, including 4 weeks PTO from day 1.

    Cons

    Compensation is on the low end. It's back loaded compensation model, where you need to make it to Senior Manager or Partner to really make it worth your while monitarily. Staff and Senior Staff are paid under market value.
    Communication of the leadership team of company strategy and initiatives is poor, but they do understand it's an issue and are working on it.
    Not a lot of local clients, but again, they understand it's an issue and it's currently the central issue they know they need to fix.
    They put ownership on the individual to meet a rather agressive chargeable hours goal, which is most often not within the individuals control. A byproduct of this is that there currently is no incentive to come in under budget on projects, which can become a core problem when the majority of the projects are fixed bid (as they are on the IT consulting side).
    You have to sell to be a partner. That's great if you have great leaders who can also sell, but what can often happen is you get someone in a leadership position who has poor leadership qualities just because they are good in sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the compensation issue of your senior staff level people. These are the people doing most of the work, and when you have below average pay the only people you're going to be able to retain are below average workers. You're most likely losing more than you're saving with high turnover and people development costs than what your saving with below market compensation. Not sure if this is true in the accounting world, but it definitely is in the IT world. Just look at this site if you want to see what your competitors are paying.
