    Pros

    Big 4 which allows move within different service lines or different locations around the world
    A lot of Ressources which makes your life easier
    Work-life balance can be achieved
    Good time and expense policy
    Office culture is good! I would think good things are coming considering The new Vision 2020 - be better and bigger by 2020

    Cons

    In my head, all the big 4 are the same so I would say, nothing better, nothing worst!
