    Pros

    great benefit, great learning experience

    Cons

    lots of uncertainty inside the firm. Bad evaluation process. performance was based on how well your personal relationship with manager. Not based on work efficiency. Mentor program is just fake and not being used well.

    Advice to Management

    talk to different employee, listen to everyone, offer your help. not just listen to those you considered as your friends in your personal life.

    Pros

    It had great benefits and a great workplace environment. It also had a good work/life balance. And it paid overtime.

    Cons

    Being bought out by KPMG. Bye bye mid-size perks. Also, inter-office work teams and interactions were not nearly as efficient as working with team members located in one's local office.

    Advice to Management

    Wish you wouldn't have sold the firm. We were doing so well.
