    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There is opportunity for advancement and you will learn fast (in part becasue turnover is huge). Big 4 firms will look good on your resume. You work with smart people (who generally leave soon after starting).

    Cons

    In general, smaller markets mean you won't work on large or public clients. There's no work life balance. It seems management doesn't care about employees. You might be out of town for months. You will have no life at "home" when you get back. If you stay with the firm you can expext the people you become friends with to leave. Requests for certain types of assignments are ignored in favor of convenienceof management.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees if you care about retention.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    They have a lot of good leaders who will give you the tools needed to succeed. I never felt like I did not know what to do and I was always given the support I was needed. It was a great place and experience and I learned a lot about myself as well. I also very much enjoyed the out of office programs they supported which gave me a chance to meet everyone I worked with. Pay was very well too.

    Cons

    Hours can be very long, especially during busy season. Also, sometimes it was difficult to seperate work and life.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for people on staff to give their ideas.
