    Pros

    Great benefits and flexible work arrangements in addition to interesting projects. The size of the business provides an incredible network of smart and capable individuals.

It is clear that the changing market conditions have impact quality of life and compensation should be adjusted to reflect these new realities.

    Pros

    Great people
    Good support and coaching
    Great learning experience
    Amazing travel opportunities or even opportunities to transfer to another city around the world - the firm really makes the effort to assist with making this happen for people who are interested
    Overall a great place to work if you’re looking to build a solid foundation for your career and the people are amazing!

    Cons

    Terrible pay (not a surprise), but the lowest of all big 4 firms in the city. Because of this staff are left feeling unappreciated and unfairly compensated for our work. Lots of seniors leave for other firms which offer better compensation for the same work - low incentive to stay

    Advice to Management

    Stop being stingy if you want to keep your staff - not expecting high pay for big 4 job but it should at least be in line with other firms
