    Pros

    lot of PTOs (but can't use it all). The people and the relationships you build with people who are suffering with you.

    Cons

    Not enough pay for the amount of your life is wasted for this job. Profit made stays at the top and doesn't funnel down to the staffs/seniors who are actually doing the work.

    Advice to Management

    reward people more. use more automation, so time aren't wasted on tedious/pointless task. Develop more business and soft skills in staff/senior.

    Pros

    It gives you exposure to the accounting industry

    Cons

    Leadership/management does not care about the staff/seniors, all that matters is the work gets done. Training is minimal and it often felt like the people who had experience and knowledge were “too busy” to teach others and help them do a better job.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Average pay; 23 days PTO; big projects for personal growth; good opportunities

    Cons

    No work life balance at all; Office politics; Wont have time to use your PTO cause you are always busy. Busy season is super long (more than 8 months); expensive health care; low match to 401K 24 cents to $1 up to 6%; you are expected to work when you are sick and running a favor; low dinner budget for overtime working

    Advice to Management

    If you promote work life balance, then let the employees have it. hire more poeple as you obviously need more people. it is not okay to have people go home after 12am every day for several months

    Pros

    It's a good stepping stone for your career in the accounting industry, whether audit or tax. You will have exposure to a wide range of different clients and work tasks. Learning, learning, learning is the sole purpose of working for a company like this. Progression and promotions come with it but only after you have put in 80-100 hour work weeks for years! Networking is essential.

    Cons

    The culture of the company is all work and no play. There's not much team building or personal relationships being built, which makes it hard to get to know your coworkers and enjoy going to work everyday. You will have no work life balance as you are expected to work a minimum of 65 hours some weeks. It all politics at a company like this. Go into it with your game plan and be sure to sit at the table with the winners in order to climb the ladder.
