    Incredible program for fresh grads

    Postgraduate Technical Assistant (Former Employee) Norwalk, CT

    ProsIncredible access to best and brighest minds in the accounting profession. Very comfortable, collaborative environment. You're literally at the Board room table setting the rules for subsequent years, amazing experience.

    ConsSteep learning curve for those who have not had a few years of technical accounting exposure as well as underappreciation for some of the exposure had (appreciate that in hindsight).

    Advice to Senior ManagementThank you for the awesome program and please continue investing in the youth in our profession. Did not feel much exposure to constituencies outside of the Big 4, would have been nice to have made some other contacts while there.

    Great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVery relaxed but intellectual working environment. Extremely flat organization structure and friendly working environment. Great opportunities to improve writing and communication skills. Excellent vantage point on the broader role of accounting in the capital markets.

    ConsVolatile work flow and sometimes nebulous assignments. Can be a very academic place to work, but also very interesting and rewarding.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe leadership and attitude of the organization is superb and management should continue foster a collegial, thoughtful, and friendly environment.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
