    Current Employee - Tax in New York, NY

    Pros

    Nice people. People in general are friendly and willing to help out when help is needed.

    Cons

    Too much office politics at the management level. Tax department is look down upon. Promotions in the tax department come once in a blue moon. Tax engagements budgets are set up or give away as a complimentary freebie by auditor partners/managers. Budgets are so unrealistic that most people just eat their time to avoid the "phone calls" from the partners in charge. The pay is below industry and bonus is meh (don't count on it). Annual chargeable goal is 1800 hours, industry standard. The weekly mandatory chargeable hour during tax season is usually around 45-55 hrs. You will probably have to work 80 minimum to meet the 55 chargeable hrs if you factor in the time that you will have to eat, snowstorms, server downtime and misc nonchargeable time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Audit partners and managers have to stop trying to run the tax department.

    Pros

    The people make a difference. I work for a variety of partners and managers and they all have given me the opportunity to advance my career. The Partners have an "Open Door Policy," if you have any questions or concerns. The Firm's culture believes in a work/life balance and always looks to build staff morale. Hard work is always recognized.

    Cons

    Based on where I live and some of the firm's clients, there is traveling involved. Sometimes the commute can be challenging. Some engagement fees are low and it is difficult to complete the job within budget.

    Pros

    It isn't a boring internship in which you sit behind a desk and staple, or hole punch, or other boring work. They send you out into the field and do hands on auditing work

    Cons

    Some of the clients they send you too are far, so travel time can get pretty long. They compensate you for gas, but it still gets annoying
