    Pros

    It's a solid company and great place to get your feet wet.

    Cons

    The culture in advisory is toxic and management often refuses to answer the tough questions. They claim that salaries are in line with the industry, but they are not.

  6. Good place for younger employees to learn and then move on.

    Pros

    Highest Salary of the Big 4

    Cons

    Lacks the business casual sense of EY, and the professionalism of Deloitte and PwC. Very gloomy

    Pros

    I work with A - grade people who are enthusiastic about what they do. This is really great. The pay is average of the Big-4.

    Cons

    Too much red-tape to get anything done. Old school culture, where X-ers fit in well, but millennials may struggle. Its a culture that's evolving right now so its a lot of change, but evolving for the better, imho

    Advice to Management

    Look around, the world has changed ... you may not be doing much auditing and taxes in the future. How about removing hurdles for advisory to make their life simpler?
