    Pros

    Great experience to learn and grow in accounting knowledge. The job looks good on your resume when applying for future roles. Coworkers are friendly and professional.

    Cons

    Long hours even when it's not busy season. Seniors and staff are out in the field with very little guidance and direction. Managers show up to client site for half a day and leave. Performance reviews are conducted by your peers and then the partners and managers have a private meeting to discuss if you should get a raise or promotion. Your career coach represents you at that meeting, but it's unclear if they actually go to bat for you, so you never get to directly make your case for your own promotion or raise. You never get to see what upper management really things about you. Seniors and managers give only negative feedback, never positive. Promises were made to me during my interview that the company did not follow through with.

    None or negligible compared to cons.

    Cons

    This is a dysfunctional company that makes practically no investment in employees. Most teams have extreme turnover. Tech I infrastructure is inferior to the comparison. Don’t be fooled by the advisory title; no one has evet heard of this company.

    I worked at Mazars full-time

    Pros

    If you like to be busy and work hard, you might enjoy it.

    Cons

    The hard work and "busy" are extreme. In some locations they still have mandatory Saturdays. The culture is somewhat cut throat and it's all about billable hours. Alot of the managers really don't know how to lead or manage or hire the right people. During busy season you are expected to work 60-80 hours per week. For the non-client facing roles, it is even worse: you are also overworked and undervalued. These departments are barely even seen as part of the team or that they make a difference to the company. They are "overhead."
