      Pros

      Pay for in-depth and accounting fees. During summer the hours are better.

      First half of the year is hell, work long hours and management are very focused on chargeable hours. You are treated as chargeable robots.

      Pros

      The story they are selling

      Cons

      They don’t do what they say - not for clients or colleagues; under paid; extremely long hours; no appreciation; they say they are client focussed, they’re not. They’re focused on Partners & egos.

      Pros

      - Good work experience. - Good people. You form close bonds with the people you work with, especially since they're your age and are going through similar experiences. - Good support for CPA program.

      Cons

      - Long hours, which are not compensated. Very low salary compared to the hours worked, although the hours are not as long as Big 4's. However, they do not offer overtime/banked hours compared to mid-size firms. No indication from Management that this will change. - Has increasingly become a toxic work environment. Little to no trust in what Partners or National say. - Corporate decisions seem to be bottle-necked at the National level. National is extremely disconnected from what the local firms and employees want.
