    Pros

    Good/decent growth since they place a lot of responsibility on you
    Some of the people are great to work with, very focused and professional

    Cons

    Compensation - All of the big 4 underpay with 'future' promises of a windfall if/when you make partner. At the end of the day, after late nights and weekends, you'll feel extremely short-changed. Those who are motivated (and smart) are better served leaving as Managers.
    Culture - Even though it definitely is not as aggressive as the other big 4, it leaves a lot to be desired. Extremely conservative and risk averse, there is a huge disconnect between the staff/senior and upper management. A spine is something they need, since they often fail to take a stance in front of clients.

    Advice to Management

    Spread the wealth, you charge the client a ridiculous hourly rate yet only the partners really see the lions share of that money, especially those who are retired (in this age, a fat pension is dragging you back). Do what it takes to raise the standards of your consultants (incentives, layoffs) and them compensate them appropriately. A top heavy structure is crushing the staff, those who are smart and motivated will do what it takes to make it to the top, incentivize them.

    Pros

    exposures (if your in a good market team) to different tax matters

    Cons

    they don't care about their employees. very bottom line focused.

    Advice to Management

    have more realistic expectations- hire more people so everyone is so strained
