    Pros

    Young staff. Well respected. Fun audits (universities). Great start to career. State has great vacation standards. I worked 10 hr days and with holidays, for 4 months I had one day or 1/2 day off from work. Recruiters are amazing! Great stepping stone into other agencies.

    Cons

    When I started the training was limited, though it was supported. Pay is rough but that's with any state agency.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep encouraging the APA to be a stepping stone into the various state agencies.

    A lot of politics from the top down

    Pros

    Good work life balance, decent training (mostly on the job), incredible flexability, good work culture, young and energetic work culture, good use of technology and telecommuting securely.

    Cons

    Quality of management depends on your assignments, not so great pay, somewhat disorganized, certain managers make advancement very difficult due to politics

    Advice to Management

    Need to institute a little more structure and standards for completing work, your work experience varies too much from project to project, expectations also vary between managers making it difficult to know how to succeed.

    Pros

    Audit is the world which makes u responsible of every thing in the financial department, it makes your ethics different for good even your life style because your dealing with the most powerful men in companies so i like this kind of job.
    There is one more thing which is : audit makes your brain thinks for solving a problem in a different ways, it makes you an independence guy who's want to make his own path with his own way at his responsibility and that what i like.

    Cons

    First of all i want to say that audit is tough so if you like a people whom search for an easy job or if you don't want to make a big future don't think about this kind because it's so hard to work under the international financial reports standards while you don't have that strong person inside you.
    the second thing is if your not brilliant and skillful don't think about the audit because in this field when you have a problem u have to think about ten ways to solve it not only one way.
    and the third thing is the working hours it takes along time.

    Advice to Management

    Only one point which is so important to be a good manager and the point is : When you reach this level please don't think that makes you better than everyone and when you receive a solution from one of your stuff who's lower than you don't think that he is underestimating you, no when you find some one like this person don't waste him because he think about the all not only himself.

    Advice to Management

    varies, very much dependent on the manager you work under, client is also important, with more budget you get more benefits
