I have been working at Public Company Accounting Oversight Board as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

This place has very lay back culture. Every working professional is very experiecned and most of them are pretty nice. Great chance to learn about the accounting industry.

My supervisor is very good. Lots of down to earth people here.

Cons

Because the company has pretty lay back culture, sometimes it is a little bit slow to push things forward. You might get too many projects to finish right before the deadlines.

Employees are expected to work cross functionally. For example, you are a accouting person, but you could definitely do a lot of IT ( business intelligence) related work.

    I have been working at Public Company Accounting Oversight Board full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smart, well respected peers that I am proud to be affiliated with. Work life balance is very reasonable. The mission and the work is well regarded and important.

    Cons

    Internal politics can make things very difficult here. For an organization of a 1,000 it is very bureaucratic. Poorly run and not efficient from an operational perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Business process re-engineering

    I have been working at Public Company Accounting Oversight Board full-time

    Pros

    Good Benefits and Generous Leave 6 weeks per year. Good Company but very disconnected from the IT staff and only cares for the Inspectors and auditors.

    Cons

    Low Salary, Double Standard, IT Micro Managed to extend where the management will watch your bathroom time, socializing is not allowed and frowned upon. All work no play no fun long hours expected to work on holidays and weekends.
    Stay away if your in IT they will crush your soul. Where you will feel worthless and stupid. Especially you are sharper then the manager they feel threatened since they believe they are the smartest people on earth.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect if you want their respect. Respect earned not demanded. Stop the double standard by treating your favorites like Gods where they can not do any wrong.
