    Pros

    -Provides great benefit package with ample vacation time and days off
    -Great learning experience and gateway to better opportunities at Hedge Funds or Private companies
    -Paid overtime
    -Firm events (LIFE Initiative, Holiday Party, Picnic)

    Cons

    -Completely unrealistic budgets
    -Some people would be managing 10 jobs during seasom while others only had 3 and would leave at 9pm, while others would be there until past There is no confidentiality. You can take management a personal problem and you can guarantee the whole office knows the next day.

    Advice to Management

    -Prove trustworthyness to workers
    -Listen when your workers are speaking out (I think something is wrong when 90% of the senior class quit)
    -Give FAIR evaluations with FAIR compensation. It isn't okay to give the entire company the exact same raise. It undermines the dedication some people do put in while the rest just breeze by.

    I think this is a great company to start out at. You learn SO much - about hedgefunds, corporate life, and business, in general. This is a great environment to learn and strengthen your skills. After 4 years or so - get out. It's the best choice I made.

    Pros

    This firm basically lets you take off anytime you want nine months out of the year with a morning's notice. You can leave early any day during busy season so long as you think of some reasonable excuse. The only real expectation is that you get your work done at some point. After the economic downturn, the firm was able to hire more intelligent staff than they had in the past. So, it should be a better place to work now.

    Cons

    For some reason, this firm hired quite a few people who did not belong in the accounting profession. As you may notice, a lot of people on this board can barely write. This was typical at the staff level and remained at the senior and management levels. The "backstabbing" people were the ones trying to tell management to get rid of some of these idiots. Everyone received close to the same raise even though there was a clear difference in performance.

    Advice to Management

    Fire some of these morons and give the good workers higher pay.
