Pros

Sector experience is unrivalled; flexible work

Cons

frequent travel; lack of opportunities for managers and directors to advance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A) Some of the former audit folks in the advisory organization do not understand the nature of serving as a trusted advisor and start off trying to audit clients B) There needs to be more focus on assisting people transition from junior ranks to Partner.

  1.  

    Good place to build solid business foundation

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Global firm with well-known reputation, hire a lot of people every year, have training program in place for employees to expand knowledge and skillset

    Cons

    High turnover at staff level, difficult to gain breadth of experience once in a group

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great employees tend to become disgruntled and leave mainly because pay is not competitive. If you want to keep the good ones, at least up the base salary and/or bonus at sufficient levels.

  2.  

    Structured, friendly, challenging

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, well-defined structure for the internship, decently organized, expectations are made clear. The internship program as a whole gave me a good idea of what to expect as an associate, especially during busy season (when I was there). A very worthwhile experience.

    Cons

    Communication between groups was not always the best and scheduling was a bit difficult at times. Also, a little scary to hear that there had been layoffs due to inaccurate projections of needs, so that didn't do much to make me feel secure. Other than that, I can't really think of anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really make sure those who are in management roles have actual management skill, be more communicative and open.
