    Cons

    - Incredibly long hours...I know it's expected in Big 4 audit, but 80 hours for half the year is unreasonable
    - Discontinuity in scheduling and last second changes, making it impossible to have a social life or have any sort of plans
    - Long drives to some client sites
    - Poor industry training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to develop a clear plan and continuity for staff.

    Current Employee - Audit Intern in Fort Lauderdale, FL

    Pros

    It is a global company with great clients that looks great on a resume. The recruiters are very personal and work hard to ensure that you don't just become a number. I have recommened several people to work for the firm and they love it too. The culture is very laid back compared to other Big Four firms. They treat interns really well, great food provided, travel experiences.

    Cons

    The time required to work and travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, continously improving.
