    Worldwide brand that is recognized. Training is top notch. Working with individuals who care about their jobs and have a good drive. Networking within accounting and finance networks is unmatched. Best place to start a career, and a good place to end up if you like it.

    Hours can be long and the competitive environment can lead to some intra-team strife. Can be difficult to give your all if family and community factors are present.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

The money is there to increase the wage and add more workers and you should be know as the best place to work in town for all three of the important factors: prestige, work/life balance, and pay.
