I worked at Commonwealth of Virginia

Pros

There was fair treatment to all employees in reference to possible issues, time off, work hours, opportunities and management support.

Cons

The only downside working for the state of Virginia was the amount of work that increased due to staff downsizing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I loved the opportunity to work with management and coworkers. Time spent there was a pleasant, easy going, knowledgable experience.

    Pros

    Easy to balance life and work. Provides excellent flexible work schedule and teleworking options.

    Too conservative in terms of changing. Not foreign worker friendly enough.

    Change is not a bad thing.

  2. Excellent foot in the door for aspiring auditors

    Pros

    The Virginia Auditor of Public Accounts is a great way for an aspiring auditor to launch their career even before they've completed their accounting courses. You will be given immediate experience as a member of an audit team with responsibilities that will grow as fast as you can handle them. The team members you work with are constantly moving on to major accounting firms giving you contacts almost everywhere you need them. Don't hesitate to accept this opportunity if internal audit is where you want to go.

    Cons

    Try to avoid being placed on solo audits that are over your head early in your career here. Every opportunity to work with experienced team members will pay off. Save the solo work until you've gotten a few audits under your belt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See above. Careful not to stunt a young auditors growth by placing them into the deep end before they can swim.
