    I have been working at Andersen Tax full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work, good benefits and good people. Open door policy with most partners. Lots of happy hours.

    Cons

    There are many groups that tend to stay to themselves and not interact much with others. Long hours and hard work but it's worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down on the international expansion, focus on the US employees and US business. Be more open to ideas from the younger crowd.

    Pros

    Things other people would brag about, don't really matter

    Cons

    This is one of the worst offices of this firm. Not that it would be much worse than Big Four in the same area, but if you have to choose between this and another Metropolitan, then choose the other.

    Management is not real, they probably have a little idea of the challenges ahead but don't pretend that they will listen to you and allow you to add any value.

    There is no real incentive to go above and beyond. Things are very very rigid and BS. Technology is very lagging. Management might be thinking that they are doing you a big favor while precisely you won't get the help you need.

    Read other negative comments about New York office. They are descriptive and informative.

    Advice to Management

    Get Real. Get Outside Help. Get Inside Help. Be Serious About Making Money.

    Pros

    Great environment, even when working long hours during tax season. Coworkers are welcoming and friendly. The interaction to upper management is frequent unlike some other firms where you don't get much face time with partners. They really want you to succeed and will do what they can to help you advance in your career.

    Cons

    Long hours, but that comes with the industry/career.

    Pros

    Casual work environment, lots of food during busy season.

    Cons

    Absolutely no work/life balance, no options to work from home, working remote requirements are so strict that no one can use them. Few holidays and you have to work most of them.

    Pros

    Interesting clients and nice office location

    Cons

    The Seattle Private Client Service group is an awful place to work with a toxic culture. As a result the turnover rate is extremely high. If you ever interview there, be sure to ask about it!!
