    I worked at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people are great, wonderful opportunities for growth. The overall working environment is excellent, very "work hard, play harder". As long as you are getting your work done they are very flexible.

    Cons

    The work is hard and the hours are long but they make a valient effort to make the time as enjoyable as possible. In public accounting certain times will always be busy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to show your appreciation to the employees under you. Getting praise for the work we do makes a huge difference in team moral.
