    I have been working at Marks Paneth full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    1. Independence in the office - get your work done and no one will bother you 2. Generous/Flexible PTO 3. Open door policy with managers and above 4. Paid overtime

    Cons

    1. Very political - unless you are “favorited” hard to move up and company is responsible for creating a lot of turnover. The structure of promotions is very poor. Success in the firm depends on your manager/partner, no your actual performance. 2. Training is pretty much nonexistent 3. Weak benefits - very poor 401(k) match and VERY expensive health benefits 4. Work Big4 like hours 5. Management is a mess and all over...
