Current Employee - Audit Senior in Portland, OR
Current Employee - Audit Senior in Portland, OR
Approves of CEO

Pros

1 ) Incomparable visibility into the internal workings of a variety of companies
2 ) Possibilities for rapid advancement compared to other similar career options
3 ) Post-employment clout given experience at a "Big-Four" firm

Cons

1 ) Compensation is not in line with the time/effort required and expected of employees both on a regional basis within the same firm and as compared to similar job opportunities with other firms
2 ) Tendency is to treat people as a means to an end and the performance feedback loop leaves a lot to be desired

Advice to Management

Make feedback meaningful and make it possible for someone to stand out and be recognized for their abilities without having to cow-tow, resort to disingenuity, and eat hours in order to meet minimum expectations (even if the individual is more than sufficiently competent).

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Promotions are fairly standard. Most people end up with a consistent client/work environment. Travel is minimal for most employees.

    Cons

    Compensation is very low in the current environment and the there is a lot of compression between the levels of compensation as raises have been very low. In addition as there have been significant layoffs and firings, there is the constant threat of being let go. The performance rating system has many flaws and can lead to some of the best performers never getting recognized. Of course, a rating system can never be perfect, but it becomes increasingly hard in the large workplace of the big 4.

    Advice to Management

    The rating system has serious flaws towards people who spend the majority/all of their time at one client. These people are given higher ratings by their superiors as they want to keep them happy. As there is a quota for high ratings, this can lead to top performers who have 2 or more clients being unfairly rated down as there are no top ratings left.
