    Large variety of clients and opportunities. They really care about their employees and want you to have the career you want.

    Lots of hours, maternity leave is way too short

    You must increase maternity leave if you want to be competitive with other firms, you are going lose women.

    Pros

    Vacation time is great.

    Cons

    There is a serious feeling that even though they are a mid-tier they don't care if a person leaves. So you just end up feeling like a number or a body in the seat. No actual impact.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on having the same people year to year on clients that they hate, in industries they avoid, with teams the want to run away from

    Pros

    Well stocked snack room, some people are friendly and helpful except a few bad eggs can spoil everything. Good exposure to different clients

    Cons

    Extremely toxic culture that overworks their best employees until they finally break down and become empty shells of their former selves. With the recent rebranding of the company, you'll be going through the year like it's a constant busy season with no end in sight while being paid the worst starting salary with laughable bonuses at the end of the year. There is a reason this office has extremely high turnover, because no one feels like they are being treated or paid fairly for the amount of work the have to do. They make having a work/life balance extremely difficult by making everyone jump through so many hoops just to ask to work from home or to even take PTO.

    Advice to Management

    Stop overworking your best staff by throwing impossible amounts of clients and setting impossible deadlines for them. How about retaining talent and grooming them instead of just throwing new waves of new staff at the company praying people will stick. Actually try to improve morale and address the issues instead of pretending everyone is having a great time, no one is.

    Pros

    Good working environment. Partners seem to care about staff and working conditions. Mindful of hours (although still public accounting hours).

    Cons

    High turnover at Staff-Manager. Very lean teams at clients where each engagement team is often missing a Manager or Senior.

    Advice to Management

    Stop "buying work" and pressuring staff to get jobs done under budget.
