Pros

Work with heavily experienced professionals/CPAs; adequate time provided to perform deep dive reviews into audit and accounting issues; travel to interesting cities in U.S. and internationally; opportunity to become familiar with and evaluate differences in audit methodologies across the large CPA firms; flexible work hours

Cons

Travel can be demanding at times; expect 20% to 35% travel each year; no retirement plan (except for 401k plan)--PCAOB matches 401k contributions but you don't have the same level of retirement security as do partners at the large firms.

Advice to Management

None--Great place to work

    Pros

    The mission of the PCAOB is worth while. The 6 weeks personal time off (PTO covers sick and vacation) from day one and the 100% matching of 401k contributions up to 7% are all great.

    Cons

    Political snakepit. Mid/Senior level hires focused on themselves and not interested in any type of career development; Management is not to be trusted and there are way too many people focused on themselves and their own careers than in the mission they are tasked with achieving. If PCAOB was the center of one of their own 'reviews' they would fail.
