Not a bad place to start your career, but work isn't particularly meaningful.

Pros

- While culture varies by office, you can usually find a smart, ambitious, and fun group of people
- It is a great place to start your career if you want to stay in accounting
- Cover the cost of CPA review class and all society fees (I believe this is the industry standard)

Cons

- You are not compensated well for you time (in all fairness, they are competitive with industry norms, it's an industry wide problem)
- Work life balance is atrocious at lower levels, it doesn't seem to ever be that great
- They try to sell you that you will be working with the best and the birghtest, but that is just not the case. Time and time again people get promoted based on tenure rather than merit.
- The work is not particularly meaningful. It is difficult to find opportunities where you can truly add value
- There is a blackbox around ratings and promotions. The firm is making an effort to demystify the process, but it is difficult to differentiate an average individual from the next level performer

Advice to Management

- Rather than trying to stay competitive with the market place, try being a market leader in terms of compensation and benefits if you want to retain top talent

    Pros

    Invest in training
    Good client base
    Good location
    Great on resume
    Multi-national company so there are opportunities to get seconded to other offices.

    Cons

    Long hours especially during the period called 'busy season' which usually runs from December to March. It can be really tough on one and one's family.
    Uninspiring compensation

    Advice to Management

    Monetary incentives for the long hours.
