      Pros

      - Dress code is typically casual or client based - Staff are extremely knowledgeable; an internship has been a very rewarding experience - The work is not as stressful as the Big Four workload but enough to keep it interesting and challenging throughout the year

      Cons

      - busy season means long hours and extensive travel (I like both but most would consider this a con) - Most locations are around the great lakes (and 4 in Colorado); the weather can get pretty cold which is a big con for me

      Cons

      Not enough support at In-Charge level Management is slow to respond to key employee turn over Exorbitant amount of premature responsibility at In-Charge level with no increase in pay No Tax Associates in the Ann Arbor office Inability to recruit experienced hires needed to fill gap between Staff/In-Charge and Partner levels Ridiculously high expectations of In-Charge level performance with almost no guidance on how to perform adequately at these levels "Suck it up and make it happen" mentality All of the above gives rise to: 1- long hours outside of Tax Season 2 - inability to use any accrued PTO 3 - very high stress level 4 - nonexistent work-life balance
