    I worked at Andersen Tax as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to work directly with partners on some projects. This is unheard of as an Intern.

    Cons

    There was a lot of busy work.

    Pros

    You get exposure to a lot of different service lines. They have free coffee and drinks. They have a number of parties.

    Cons

    HR is a joke, it takes months to get anything done with them. Training is very sub-par and not at the level of most firms their size. Managers get away with a lot that is borderline inappropriate. It's a very party oriented office. It tries to be like the big four but lacks the structure and clients. Staff and seniors are forced to work over 100 hours per week in busy season and no one cares, in fact its encouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Replace HR. Managers and above need accountability. Diversify the staff - the office is 95% white male. Get training on the level of other firms.
