    Pros

    Once you stop believing the bull they force down your throats, it can be a decent job based on tour project

    Cons

    - inconsistent management (mostly horrible)
    - "driving your own career" is bull, you go where they need you and it turns into project after project of things you don't have any interest in
    - Mich of your year end rating is bases on how much internal work you spend your free the doing aka they pay you for one job and get you to do two
    - much of advisory work are projects no one with a brain would be interested in (testing, document reviews, ect)
    - reviews are drastically different from project to project and lower level employees can get easily screwed by circumstances beyond their control
    - many projects have unnecessary travel requirements. Pretty hard to stay motivated travelling every week to do work a monkey could do and that you could do from your bed

    Advice to Management

    Review system is seriously flawed, have known many hard working, smart people leave who got screwed during reviews

    Fix this scenario: a staff from the LA office flies to charolette every week to do work anyone with a brain could do. At the same time you send someone from charolette to LA at the same time to do work anyone with a brain could do. Horrible system. Horrible deployment placing.

    Pros

    Experience working on large public and private companies.

    Cons

    If you don't already know the cons of public accounting, spend 3 minutes on Google.

    Advice to Management

    Not really much to say here. Your day to day job situation is only very slightly impacted, generally, by upper management. You should be more concerned with your individual team dynamic. Having said that, management does seem to be paying a bit closer attention to the younger staff and seniors than in the past, but a communication gap still exists nonetheless.
