    Pros

    Pros

    Nice offices, great benefits, good pay. Good perks! Good socials!

    Cons

    Unless you are in the “click” which if you join from outside you won’t be, you are not treated well. They have their favourites and nothing will stop that. Not promoted on merit or hard work just the usual big 4 mentality of who knows who gets ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Impartial appraisals and help needed within teams to ensure this happens.

    Pros

    Gave a variety of experience

    Cons

    It is all about partner bottom line and management don't care about their employees. Instead of helping each other grow it was all about stepping on people to get ahead. You learn how to grow a thick skin between the bullying culture and being overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage and take care of your employees.
