A good job, but limited career mobility

Associate Tax Auditor (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsThe hours are very flexible and one is able to work from home after a year. The paid time off per year is rather generous (at least 13 days a year). Overtime is unheard of; generally everyone works 40 hours a week. Since one has a good degree of autonomy and control of one's work schedule, this is the perfect job for mothers with young children.

ConsThe pay is comparable to that of a public accountant in the first three years. After that, promotions and big raises are hard to come by. In fact, it is not unusual for an auditor to be stuck as an Associate Tax Auditor (equivalent of a Senior Associate in an accounting firm) for many years before obtaining a promotion to Program Specialist I or Administrator I (Manager-level).

Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be greater transparency in how the promotions are granted. Currently, it appears that well-connected supervisors are able to dole out promotions to their favorites regardless of an individual's ability or job performance.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
