    Pros

    Get to say you worked at big 4. Can transition to another department. 5 weeks of PTO.

    Cons

    Busy seasons just get worse and worse, pay increases aren't going up and up. Very hard to have work/life balance.

    Pros

    Really smart and driven people, collaborative atmosphere, plenty of chances to develop multiple skill sets, plenty of travel, direct access to senior management (and they tend to take your inquiries seriously)

    Cons

    plenty of travel can get old, not many chances for advancement, in some groups the managers play favorites, there can be long periods of no work in your own field and you need to be willing to do something completely different for a while, pay is less than what you might get if you leave the firm

    Advice to Management

    try to keep key talent from slipping away by possibly being more transparent about the advancement process.
