  1. "Get out what you put into it"

    Pros

    Lots of smart people. Some of the work can be pretty interesting. You are learning all the time and every project is different. Ability to do a variety of things and go anywhere in the world.

    Cons

    The expectations for hours are through the roof. A lot of your time is spent doing menial tasks, ticking and tying, or jumping through internally created hoops. Flexibility is preached but rarely practiced. Rated against your peers so politics is infinitely important. Diminishing returns to scale of performance- the people who seem to do the best. "All stars" usually burn out after a few years. Pay before the sr manager/ director level is a joke compared to the time commitment expected of associates/ seniors.

    Advice to Management

    Stop beating around the bush and blowing us smoke. Pay us what we deserve and we'll be happy. Why is performance emphasized so much in the rating scale yet really not rewarded comp-wise?


  2. "Great place of employment for accountants and auditors, not so friendly for infrastructure"
