Pros

Stable, no one is worried for their jobs (except in audit!). A lot of promotion from within. Many good people if you don't let the placeholders get in your way.

Cons

Big company politics
Big company culture.
They like to hire E&Y and other big 4 employees instead of from within.
Technology is behind the curve.

Specifically audit department is extremely out of touch, perhaps this comes with the territory, I would have expected more cohesion between peers though. Their discontent is the primary bond in that department. Make it through there and things get much better yet not perfect. Expect many uncompensated late nights. Work hard, not smart.

Below average pay.

Advice to Management

Adopt more agile business processes and become more employee centric (more so than just saying it). Break down the silos and lose some formality, it gets in the way. Hire good people you trust and empower them.

    Pros

    Good pay, opportunity to move around, Stock is rising quickly

    Cons

    Pressure from upper management, Hours are bad for those in a store. Work alot alone. You can get stuck in a position that and cant move if your store or territory doesnt do well

    Advice to Management

    Talk to employees to see what they want in a career and make decisions based on that and performance because a lot of employees are frustrated. The hours are not what people expect to work out of college and by continuing to extend them frustrates employees.
