    Pros

    Will hire new grads with little experience, entry-level role for diploma grads or people who aren't interested in their CPA

    Cons

    Managers/seniors encourage you to eat your time (you end up doing unpaid overtime) Performance rating system is rigged and highly political If you're not in your early twenties you will have trouble fitting in the office culture Compensation system is a joke, considering how much unpaid overtime you'll do

    Advice to Management

    Don't create a clerical/technical audit role promising work-life balance and then expect them to conform to the toxic culture of the articling program
