Pros

The com pay is very diverse they hire people from all backgrounds, they are very family oriented, they provide exceptional training and they pair you with a career mentor within the firm. They have an amazing volunteering program and the PTO is 5 weeks if you are not stuck in multiple busy seasons.

Cons

Average work day is about 12 hours, clients are not efficient and effective, whatever practice you end up in you are stuck there for a couple of years. Salary could be better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire managers and Partners that actually contribute to the engagement.

    Pros

    Good network and motivated to work with. Pretty agile in adopting to the changing landscape of what is really affecting clients and building solutions accordingly.

    Cons

    Similar cons of having advisory services attached to a large accounting firm. Too risk adverse, too many administrative paper work which takes away from delivering on the work needed.

    Pros

    Good place to start your career. It allows you access to see what it is like to work at various companies while you audit them. This company / position will teach you a lot about important compliance related topics and how they apply to various business.

    Cons

    They budgets are usually un-realistic. Managers want staff to work extra hard to reduce the risk to the firm, while they agree with clients to reduce the number of hours in our budgets. This causes many engagements to have too much to do and not enough time to finish it in.

    Also, the biggest thing is that most of the Directors & Managers in IT Advisory in OC are old CPA accounting personnel who don't know a thing about IT. It was laughable how many IT managers had to be educated by their staff regarding basic IT principles.
