    Current Employee - Senior Auditor in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Senior Auditor in New York, NY

    Pros

    This is a great place to grow your profession career. Great learning and great chance to meet people. Your career path will set in motion and develop as the time goes by.

    Cons

    Extremely demanding for long hour work. High pressure cooker will explode anytime. Constantly work till late. You are very lucky if you can leave at 9:30 in busy season. Even in non-busy season, you will still be drained down by the volume of work and to meet the deadline. Often have to work extra long hour when at home.

    Advice to Management

    Get more staffs and more hands. Without enough help, quality goes down and people get frustrated with exhausted work. Low compensation for the staffs is getting people and not motivate to devote to the job. In the end, it affects the quality and people leave.

    Current Employee - Strategy & Operations Manager
    Current Employee - Strategy & Operations Manager
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Strong, well-recognized brand
    - Bright and intelligent people
    - Frequently interesting and relevant work
    - Promotes self-management of career path
    - Encourages balance between client service and other work (e.g., social networking, article/journal development)

    Cons

    - Low compensation
    - Compromised work/life balance due to aggregate expected work in client service and other firm-related work.
    - Questionable ethics in billing/utilization
    - Success is heavily dependent on informal networks

    Advice to Management

    Just one theme: Be ethical, and do it consistently. We preach that we bill the productive hours we work, and yet we ask our staff to under-report those hours to hide that the project was understaffed. If we understaff to win the work, we still need to let our people bill accurately because that is the right thing to do. And if we cannot sell work with properly staffed teams, then it sends a more accurate message about needing to retool our strategy and approach; and that's a good thing.
