    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Public Company Accounting Oversight Board full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Generally a low-stress job where people don't work that hard

    Cons

    The review processes (incorporating feedback from multiple divisions) can be slow. On the technical side, sometimes it feels like we are 10-15 years behind where we should be.

    I have been working at Public Company Accounting Oversight Board full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good PTO policy....6 weeks. Good 401K match Work from home 2 days a week, after being with the organization for 2 months.

    Cons

    Difficult to get promoted. Limited opportunities. Not really clear what you have to do to get promoted. Very top heavy, because individuals have been around for years and refuse to leave/retire to open up opportunities. Lots of travel with lots of last minute changes in schedule. Seems like certain people always get the good locations to travel to especially for the International inspections even if they don't have any specific language skills. Expense policy is not friendly at all. Ridiculous low limits on hotels and you need to get lots of approvals if by any chance you have to mix a business & personal trip, even if the cost is less to the organization. Makes the whole thing very time consuming and stressful. Expense reporting is tedious and extremely time consuming.
