    Pros

    Relaxed introduction to public accounting. Best way to figure out if the field is for you. You get to go to Disney world at the end.

    Cons

    Really short internship. Only on the job for roughly 6 weeks. Audit usually isn't during busy season if you intern over the summer.

    I have been working at EY full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The biggest pro of joining a specialty group is that, as you gain more information in that specific area, you tend to be much more valuable in the market. Since I'm a tax guy, I'll take this from the tax side. Almost everyone has general federal tax expertise, but if you decide to take invest in a specialized area of tax, such as Research and Development, and really run with it, that specialized knowledge can make you very valuable and always have a job within the public accounting world.

    Cons

    The biggest con to those specialized practices is often it will make you unemployable, or less employable, outside of public accounting. Again, with tax, many big companies need people who have that general fed taxation knowledge, but very, very few need an employee dedicated to Research and Development.

    Advice to Management

    Starting in one of these specific practices right out of college can really give you an advantage if that's the field you want to stay in (whether travel is a pro or a con is up to you).

    Pros

    amazing culture
    nice benefits
    great company goals

    Cons

    you may get trapped in a position/ industry because HR is weird i.e. easier to move up in rank than transfer to another service line

    Use your employees for their strength not just to fill positions

    Keep doing a great job in understanding interns and their special needs.It is in your merit that I had such a great time despite the long hours.
