I worked at Public Company Accounting Oversight Board full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Easy, no pressure, no real deadlines. Board members or senior management don't care about how the organization is operating. Over paid with easy bankers hours work.

Cons

No motivation, incompetent IT department - but no one cares since it can't be any worse how it is. SEC is totally ineffective in overseeing PCAOB. It should be better off as part of Government, and have GAO audit them. There is no independent audit - SEC OCA and PCAOB senior management know each other.

Advice to Management

Stop believing what IT is telling you. Have some really know IT audit your IT projects and their sendings. Should pay attention to internal operations more. Adjust salary by location. Cost of living is not same between DC or NY vs Tx or Colorado!!! Especially when those people work from their home most of the time!

    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.
