    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, surrounded by highly qualified and polished professionals who motivate you to be the best you can be.

    Long hours at times but this is not a secret.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage people to have a personal life and the perception of work/life balance will improve. It seems people are scared to disconnect sometimes.

    Pros

    You learn a lot and work on interesting projects. Some of the people you meet and work with from the Partners/Managing Directors to the Staff are some of the best you will ever meet in your lifetime.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible for amount of work done and when compared to other Big4 Tax in Chicago. I recommend you switch to another Big4 if you want to stay in public and want to be valued and comped well. With tax reform the hours have gone up but the Comp has not at all. Leadership needs to go

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people more.

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits are excellent. I feel like I am growing as a consultant every day on the job. Friendly and extremely smart coworkers as well as excellent training resources. $500 wellness subsidy is a great perk. High emphasis on networking in the firm.

    Cons

    Staffing can be a challenge when you first start at the firm as it took a month for me to get placed on my first project. Jumping through independence requirements can be a challenge. Work-Life balance can be difficult if you aren’t willing or unable to set boundaries.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue to emphasize work-life balance especially on high burn high travel engagements and negotiate this with clients up front.
