    Pros

    Managers and partners are always available to answer questions when needed. Another pro is that you are able to learn a variety of things related to accounting.

    Cons

    This is definitely a high school setting. Managers and partners definitely confirm this by playing favorites . They are quick to give a bad review after you voice your opinions to them about how things are done.

    Advice to Management

    The job itself is difficult. Help and LISTEN to your employees more.
