Pros

Provides good building blocks for basic business skills. Smart, young, eager staff. Fun comrades. Potential to earn a lot of money at the partner level.

Cons

Hierarchical culture with earning rank through years of service even with experience and fast tracking the selected few. Lots of hours. Business model based on young, inexperienced talent partnered with 1-2 medium experienced talent at the expense of the client through high fees.

    Pros

    Great development early in career and competitive salary right out of college.
    Incredible resources firm-wide.
    Lots of great opportunities and flexibility

    Cons

    Expected to work a lot of hours....12+ hour days during busy season.
    Partner involvement is not what it should be.
    They hire more incompetent employees that you would expect

    Pros

    The people are great and the opportunities, at least here in the New York Metro region, are endless if you get exposure to the right clients and engagement teams.

    Cons

    The starting salary and yearly increases are not as competitive as the other Big 4, I don't think.
