    Great learning experience but a lot of hours and office politics.

    Tax Associate (Current Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsWork with large clients
    Work with young, energetic individuals
    Opportunity to advance at young age
    Travel - Opportunity to see new cities for training
    Job security

    ConsA lot of hours and hard deadlines which will involve late nights and weekends
    Promotions only occur once a year
    Underpaid for the amount of work required
    Travel - Could be put on projects out of the office for months on end in small towns

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromotion process is too rigid and turns a lot of people away. Many associates think that only payoff in long run is to stay until partner.

    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsSmart and nice people, trying to improve work-life balance, some good opportunities
