Good work/life balance. Not killer on the hours compared to other CPA firms and a very laid back atmosphere. The exchange of information is generally pretty good here as well and superiors don't get too fussy about minor mistakes so long as you learn for them.
Base salary is horrendous plus they like to deflate the value of certain prior experiences. CPA is a MUST to advance. They wouldn't mind holding certain people back a decade in promoting someone to Senior. Other firms aren't so bad with this. I also find a sense of cliquiness with certain groups of people yet others are relegated to Outer Mongolia. Some people are overly sensitive and can turn around and be pretty nasty about it at times yet because they were "part of the loop", their opinion mattered more than mine. You're 1000X more likely to get gigged for a trivial personality issue over a technical/competence issue
Advice to Management
With some partners, I would say communications can be sorely lacking at times.
