    I worked with some of the best professionals in the industry. They were truly great to work with and helped when you needed it. Positive thinking group of people!

    Cons

    Travel for the job was taking away from home life/work balance.

    Advice to Management

    Need to alternate the travel with each of the employees.

    Pros

    Laid back but attentive senior management who cared about staff morale, etc. Flexible work arrangements offered and approved when necessary. Great alternative to Big 4.

    Cons

    Healthcare experience was very specialized, which was good in general, but limited most opportunities which seemed attainable after leaving the company to governmental agencies.

    Pros

    I like the traveling to different cities for work and meeting other people from the other offices.

    Cons

    You would only get a Friday notice you were traveling for 2 to 4 weeks and you fly out on Sunday. Not any time to get ready and organize a sitter.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they try to work with you about traveling since we have children and pets.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Never worked the traditional long public accounting hours. A great place to work to obtain audit experience.

    Cons

    CG doesn't value company culture and turnover was to be expected from senior management and partners so there wasn't an importance on retaining employees.

    Advice to Management

    More career growth

    Benefits were lacking. After moving to a Big 4 this was eye opening.
