Pros

Great learning experience, technical knowledge, professional skills, opens doors for follow-on career opportunities. Well connected internationally, and good opportunities for learning outside your core function.

Cons

Politics is not bad, but your fate can depend on one person. Performance management has room for improvement as grading system puts 80-90% of people in "average" rank. Managers may be reviewed by Sr. managers, which is almost similar to being reviewed by your peers - huge conflict of interest.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in senior leadership. Do not promote someone to partner or director, just because warm body is needed in that corner office.

    Pros

    Young staff, access to many training resources, good name to have on a resume, ability to work on different clients across many industries.

    Cons

    Structured promotions, little to no merrit based pay or recognition, long hours and audit work is not the most interesting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider trying to hang on to top performers by offering more solid pay increases and bonuses. If you can get people to stay you could have a better company.
