Pros

Working for diverse industries and large companies. Inclusiveness is a big thing while recruiting and management takes time to make sure is a priority. There are a lot of humble, sincere and intelligent people. I would say that in tax, it is very important that you are involved in social activities so you can shine among others. Work is typically allocated in a very subjective way (at least in my experience). If you like diverse experience there are programs that rotate you among different service lines but if you join specialized services this is not an option (example, transfer pricing).

Cons

If you join as an outsider is very hard to integrate to teams/large engagements. The key thing is who leads the practice and how. Most leaders are very independent but if they really dont give priority to investing on people this might create an atmosphere where career advancement might not be clear. Naturally, in this kind of situations the most favorable are the ones who are close to the leader since they get all the good projects and junior staff get the treatment of golden boys. In this difficult economy the key priority is to be chargeable (at least 80%) and specialize in a particular service or industry. Otherwise, take a hike.

Advice to Management

Create opportunities or invite people to search outside for challenges.

    Pros

    Excellent resume builder which will allow you to easily find another job .

    Cons

    Say goodbye to your work/life balance. Expect to give up your saturdays and sundays during busy season, and if you're unlucky, you could be assigned to client with fiscal ye at 3/31, 6/30, and 9/30 also.

    Advice to Management

    Remember all the things that you hated when you were a staff and try to relate to them. Just because you're now part of management, doesn't mean that you have to act like one of the jackasses.
