Pros

Different clients and industries keep things interesting, depending on your team it can be fun and you'll make some good friends, 3 weeks vacation which is more than most places plus the option to buy more vacation (but remember it'll cost you)

Cons

Of course, no work life balance, blame game is everywhere all the time, unrealistic expectations and very little help as you progress in the firm. Management does not care to hear anything negative though like most corporate cultures they'll say they do. Very little support from upper management so hard to feel like a team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Other than the obvious "hire more people", stop having such a chip on your shoulders to think that you don't have to get your hands dirty in the detail and help out with the actual onsite audit work. It is supposed to be a team after all. Just because it's the way it was done when you were a senior doesn't mean it was done right or needs to stay that way.

    Pros

    Personal development opportunities are endless. Management and company culture really geared towards personal development and people first. Experience gained is significant. Project opportunities uncommon for peer group at other companies.

    Cons

    Work life balance is very unpredictable. Travel schedule and project assignment is normally out of your hands. Local management attempts to be flexible given personal circumstances, but only so much they can do based on regional utilization requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue down the path of Benefits and Master Plan transparency. This area has really improved over the past 2 years, and I would like to continue seeing the positive tone at the top and the respective effort.
