Pros

Good experience. Lots of opportunity. You work at lots of companies and do a lot of different things. If you are interested in travel there are lots of opportunities. The people are in general very intelligent and hardworking. You build up a great network that will help you the rest of your career.

Cons

Stressful and heavy with politics. What you want to do in your career and what the partnership wants you to do might not necessarily be the same thing. Staffing is rough. You are held responsible for your utilization but you don't always have control over your staffing. You need to be flexible. The work is sometimes boring and unrewarding. I always felt a little under-paid in terms of how hard I worked vs. the salary I received.

Advice to Management

Pay your lower level staff better and give them more reasons to stick around after "putting in their time."

    Pros

    good feedback system
    people are friendly and fun
    competitive environment
    strong committment to career and educational advancement
    CPA bonus and review course

    Cons

    little movement between engagement teams - sometimes you might be available and another team is busy, but they won't allow you to switch for budget and political reasons
    the clients are scattered in a wide radius from the central office, you are not compensated for above average travel time (more than 2 hours)
    HR department can be rude

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to work from home when they are "available", take into account where people live when placing them on teams
