Pros

Interesting work, if you are correctly placed in the right group. Benefits and pay (including bonuses) are excellent. Lots of applications and tools to support projects.

Cons

Travel and hours are very demanding, so be aware that you are compensated for this expectation. Large training and independence requirements. The training and education is there, but a lot is basically own time requirements as you will likely be billing full time before you can complete all your training goals. Independence requirements can be difficult if you have large or varied investments.

    Pros

    The company provides excellent learning opportunities and a great base for advancing your career. You are working with intelligent individuals, both coworkers and clients, and are also able to get an overview and learn about various businesses and industries your clients operate.

    Cons

    The hours are long and one can find himself/herself in a very stressful environment at times. Almost always jobs are understaffed thus requiring team members to work long hours during year-end audits. Work-life balance (or it's rather called 'flexibility' now) is talked about a lot in recent years but in reality everybody forgets about this idea during the busy season (so if you keep getting scheduled on one year-end client after another you might never get a chance to experience the benefits).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve job staffing to reduce work overload.

    Rewarding learning experience; public accounting firms are still struggling to find the right way to foster flexibility

    Pros

    You can get a great learning experience in a very short period of time. You will work with some very bright individuals. If you want it, you can continually get challenged

    Cons

    If you are a high performer, beware. The firms have no way to reward those people who work well above and beyond others. High performers are abused and not rewarded

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out proper forms of recognition for individuals who work above and beyond their peers. Don't have some individuals working 80-90 hours a week, while just around the corner, their peers are working 40 hour weeks - Put pressure on managers to speak up when staffing is well understaffed. Also - I would suggest you be less greedy at the top of the pyramid; spread those funds throughout your pyramid and hire more individuals; you will not lose your best people.
