    Pros

    1. Great exit opportunities.
    2. Amazing resources available for self development you won't find in industry.
    3. You will meet a lot of high level people out on engagements.
    4. You'll form long lasting connections with others in your stat class.

    Cons

    1. Your experience will depend entirely on your engagement team. If you're working with people you get along with, a tough engagement won't feel too bad. However, if you are unfortunate and get placed on a bad team, your going to have a bad time. If you're staff, especially a first year, don't expect to be moved to another engagement just because you tell HR you're not getting along with your team. Bodies are needed on engagements, and you can bet no one is giving up a good engagement so that you can get out of a bad situation.
    2. Work/Life balance, as many have stated before, doesn't exist in Big 4. Senior management talks a big game about it, but implementation is difficult and there seems to be a disconnect between what they say and what actually occurs and in some cases is possible.
    3. Audit work is dull. No matter how much anyone tries to convince you otherwise it is not interesting. At least at the staff level.
    4. You will play office politics. "Face-time" is the name of the game. At times, you will be sitting in the office/on site just for the sake of being there and not because the work actually requires you be there.
    5. It's not to your benefit to be efficient. Milk any task they give you within reason.
    6. There will be times when you are given a task that will take longer than budgeted or expected by management. Don't take their word as fact, as they are very removed from the actual work performed and are really just wildly guessing at how long a task should take. Communicate any bumps in your progress, but expect to be chastised for taking longer than their expected timeline.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. High turnover, while it supports growth opportunities for lifers, is not conducive to diversity. You're losing a lot of people that could have added value in areas you might not have expected.
