    Typical Big4 company - forget about work/life balance if you're in Assurance

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee) Moscow (Russia)

    ProsLots of internal instruments which now work pretty good. Most of your peers and subordinates are quite young (if you're not young - you're either a Director/Partner or in the wrong business) and mostly motivated.

    ConsNo work/life balance whatsoever - though it's still a goal for the management, in practice trying to maintain work/life balance is hard, it's not really supported by mid-level management. Heavy time investment in coaching - in fact rarely successful (high turnover of low and mid-level staff)

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward and compensation policies shoud really be reviewed, as the remuneration level is so below the industry level.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    School of life.

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee) Moscow (Russia)

    ProsGreat social lift. Excellent combination of people, technology and broad range of projects (applicable for Risk Assurance). Best place to start your career if you dont need money in first years

    ConsWork-life balance, compensation is just miserable. During first 2 years your salary would be less comparing to selling BigMacs in McDonalds (considering same working hours)

    Challenging work, long hours

    Tax Consultant (Current Employee) Moscow (Russia)

    ProsYou definitely get a challenge. You have a lot of various tasks that need to be completed timely and with good quality. A great team, a good office... Recommend if you value these things

    ConsVery long hours, have to work nights, on weekends, holidays. The salary for this kind of regime is not good enough. No bonuses for overwork, which, actually is not really legal...

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more employees or increase current wages! The absence of bonuses is also not a good policy.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Temporary job, no perspective for future

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSometimes interesting assignments
    Good exposure to wide range of professionals
    There are good professionals to learn from

    ConsNo work life balance (70 hours week during busy season and 50 hours in off peak is a norm)
    No bonuses
    No clearly defined benefits for no work life balance
    Emotional supervisors ( some of them), no matter what effort are place and what results are achieved there is always a chance to be blamed
    Personal relations within the firm is key factor for good career
    90% of work is routine assignments

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
