    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

    Pros

    If you want a high salary with a good expense account, come on down.

    Cons

    You are expected to be available 24/7 and you deal with drama queens who enjoy screaming during meetings. When someone makes partner, they are no longer accountable, so they can behave as badly as they wish with no repercussions. Kiss the partner's backside and you'll do well, because that's all that matters.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making it impossible to discipline the partners. Everyone knows who the nut cases are, so find some way to hold them accountable. We all talk about them behind their backs and do not respect them, but we have to grin and bear it.

    Pros

    Since the interns are paid by the hour (including overtime), the pay is very good, especially this time of year. Great opportunity to network.

    Cons

    Hours can be long. Not much people interaction.

  7. Great start to career, too long of hours.
