    Professional and Friendly

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsExcellent staff that worked as a real team.
    Encouraged us to further our education and great work-life balance.

    ConsTurnover in our department seemed high, but was not the fault of management. Probably because many of their hires were recent graduates that were not looking for a long term career at the time.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    OK to work

    Consultant (Current Employee) Roseland, NJ

    ProsThe location and the offices are really nice especially for those who live around that area. Induction time and training for beginners is superb.

    ConsThe consulting group is really badly managed.The consulting group partners are damaging the firm's reputation overall. Salary is ok but not the best compared to other firms in the same industry

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should look more into the consulting group and take immediate actions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not a bad place to work

    Assurance (Current Employee) Hartford, CT

    ProsMost of the folks are nice. You aren't going to love everyone any where you go so "most" is a glowing review. Resources are good. It's a great place to gain experience.

    ConsLong hours. Not as bad as Big Four, but not as nice as when they were smaller.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great place to be, if you are vocal and driven

    Audit Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsPartners have an open door policy
    There is a CPE or other form of training for just about anything
    If you are vocal and driven the sky is the limit

    ConsPay is not very competitive
    Expensive benefits
    Favoritism / very cliquish / gossipy
    Human resources are not good at either scheduling or hiring

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you don't hire better people (especially human resources) and don't increase the pay or offer some other form of reward, you will lose the talent!

    Neutral

    Senior Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsIt is a good public accounting firm to work for.

    ConsThere is not enough opportunity for growth. There are partners who have come through acquisitions that don't do anything to grow the firm but make a ton of money.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees more and stop promising the world and under delivering everytime.

    Very high voluntarily turnover rate (10% of professional staff in 2011)

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Woodland Hills, CA

    ProsGood training if your manager is willing to invest in you.
    Good and fun staff to work with
    Good IT support

    ConsA lot of politic and kissing up involved.
    Some very aggressive bus drivers who relentlessly throw people under buses.
    Very hard to move up if partners cannot relate to you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe want to see Management care more about staff feedback. Partners should diversify their workforce more and treat people equally.
