    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work there were the teams from across locations coming to the aid of offices who needed a project to get done.

    Cons

    I wish management could've been more transparent when it came down to performance review and critical feedback.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance during off season, decent company culture, fun people to work with, challenging job, overtime pay, PTO

    Cons

    Management played favorites, long workweeks during busy season, upper level employees reluctant to let go of clients

    Advice to Management

    Don't play favorites - that's why you lose some of your best employees. Be honest with them about what is going on with the company.

    Pros

    Working with smart and energetic people.
    Firm's many initiatives for Work Life Balance.
    Very generous vacation policy as compared to industry.

    Long hours during busy season (but that's to be expected in Public Accounting) and hours are better as compared to other public accounting firms.

    Pros

    They paid for dinner if you stayed late and car service if you were in the office late as well.

    Cons

    Deceitful in their employment practices. I was hired full-time permanently only to find out that the company was being bought out by KPMG and that the last few people hired would be the first to be laid-off.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire people permanently when you know that the company's future is unstable.
