    Place where people go to begin their careers and die

    Associate (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsWork from home, travel, team

    ConsWork-life balance, no accountability, no actual acknowledgement of work done, poor general sentiment among employees, no pride in work completed

    Advice to Senior ManagementAcknowledge that the employees do not trust management. Promises are made and very rarely come through unless you're at the Senior Associate/Manager level. People that are dissatisfied with their positions and voice that opinion are limited in what they can do to change that.

    It has been a decent experience so far.

    Advisory Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsMobility and opportunities to move around and change roles although only a recent change. I have been lucky enough to experince different roles and different offices. Firm is becoming more dynamic so change comes quicker and is tangible. Talent pool is on the rise for advisory so a lot of energy in the work environment.

    ConsFirm doesnt match a 100% of the retirement plan contribution. Compensation could be better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFacilitate better 360 degree review opportunities so performance measurement is more objective and comprehensive. There is loss of talent attributable to sometimes the management group that sometimes does not act in the larger interests of the firm.

    Consmanagement's acknowledgement of individual performance is often inadequate and misaligned with compensation

    Great way to build a career.

    Audit Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Short Hills, NJ

    ProsDepending on your client load, variety in experience, and who you work with, it can be a very pleasant experience where you learn a lot in a short period of time.

    ConsAlso depending on your client load, variety in experience, and who you work with, it can be a frustrating experience without much learning. Further, the hours can be really rough in busy season if you're in audit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease transparency to all levels and communicate timely.

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