    Pros

    Management is open and honest and they give you the opportunities and tools to develop and become a leader. The firm has a clear vision of what it wants and where it is headed, and it's nice to know someone is steering the ship. You form really good relationships and you are willing to give it all you got for the people you work with.

    Cons

    Public accounting in general is not a 9 to 5 job, which can be draining. Also, the firm is always going through a lot of change and new initiatives, so you need to be really organized and able to to multi-task or it can become really challenging.
