    faster advancement for those who deserve it, pay for employees to take MBA like Deloitte Consulting, match or surpass Deloitte Consulting wages especially for tax employees who are , in general, more school/intelligent

    Pros

    Good place to build a strong network of like-minded professionals
    Brand is top of the market
    Lots of access to technical materials

    Cons

    Poor Salary compared to other opportunities
    Bureaucratic nightmare sometimes with the size of the organization

    Advice to Management

    They should invest more in people coming up on the audit side, lost lots of talent that started there. Starting with pay.

    Pros

    Young, fast paced environment with ample opportunity to learn and grow. Such a great place to own your career, set your parameters and develop a network. Smart people and endless resources.

    Great expense policy. Free meals, parking, mileage, coffee, professional dues, tuition.

    Cons

    Limited work / life balance
    High turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    There's a lot of turnover because people get burnt out. Instead of cycling people through, why not see if you can get some of those folks to stick around.

    Pros

    Develop excel skills, decent 1st job, good for people that did all their homework in school and constantly asked "will this be on the test?"
    The partners don't get rich either- they pay income tax in 29 states, meaning that $350k distribution results in take-home pay of ~$150k. I guess that's a pro... at least they're not scamming the underlings for their own benefit, there's just not enough money to go around.

    Cons

    I averaged 75 hours (100% in office) per week for the year I was there.
    Two weeks were over 100 hours
    I worked weekends often.
    Big 4 experience is no longer as valuable as it once was unless you want to stay in accounting forever.

    Advice to Management

    God be with you
