Pros

Respect and recognition that people are the most important part of the business. Commitment of the company towards the development of the people.

Cons

Inconsistency of the promotions and salary policy between functional groups AND within functional group. Designation of "Favorites" and arbitrary nature of partner promotions. A nebulous category exists "partner" material that is undefined. People with similar metrics would have different treatment. This exists even at certain lower levels. Even though I love working here I know first hand of several people for whom this was a reason for departure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get some consistency in the promotions and salary policy at least within the functional group. The focus is around the best place for someone to start a career, its time to develop a "lifer" mentality

    Pros

    Career development - you work a ton of hours but learn at such a rapid rate. It is an opportunity in your first year out of college to meet with and discuss accounting treatment with executives from Fortune 500 companies. Your market value increases exponentially year after year and when you decide to leave or even do a market check, you are a highly valued commodity due to this experience.

    Cons

    All work and no life. It is an extremely political environment - especially the compensation reviews. A lot of very talented people are turned off to the annual review process whereby managers and partners get together and decide your raise sometimes completely disregarding your feedback from assignments. If you go out and drink with the right people, kiss the right butts, and work for a manager that is "in" with the partners you can easily get a better rating then someone who works much harder with a manager that is not as popular.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a more subjective way of rating and promoting employees.

    Pros

    Great place to work with great people and great clients. It's also a place that you can work as hard as you want or as little as you want. The harder you work, though, the more you are appreciated and rewarded.

    Cons

    You can get caught up in the over demand for the organization's services. If you're not careful, you can work everyday. Don't let that happen to yourself but do step up when necessary. You will not be disappointed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Begin to right size and scale back the utilization requirements. They are too high in certain markets.
