    Pros

    Learning experience. Training. Working with young intelligent people

    Cons

    Overall pay doesn't correlate to the hours worked. Poor work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation is too ridged. Some employees work Longer hours on more complex accounts and get paid the same as those on easier engagements

    Pros

    The firm cares about the people and does what they can to make the busy season as fun as possible.

    Cons

    The firm tries to divide the hours evenly amongst individuals but due to the difference in size of engagements it is difficult to be able to achieve that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Strong company culture that is infectious to new hires. Work on how hours are divided.
