Executive in Advisory Services
Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

Client relationships.


Downers

It is an accounting firm, not a consulting firm. For the consulting practices - they really don't seem to know what to do.


Comments

In spite of everything above, this firm employs some outstanding people that I enjoy working alongside.

Mid-level in Audit & Assurance
Atlanta, GA | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

The best aspects are opportunities to develop your own projects and lead them, friendly people, and some flexibility in your time.


Downers

The worst aspects are ignored diversity issues and non-recognition of high performing individuals in lieu of cliques in the firm.

2013 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

Generous compensation if coming from Big 4; much greater ability to control your own work/life balance; greater responsibility very early on in career.


Downers

Smaller size of firm makes if difficult, if not impossible, to avoid working with managers who are unplesant or difficult to work for


Comments

Having worked at a Big 4 and GT, I greatly value the work/life balance and the early responsibility GT has afforded me, but my inability to avoid working with certain mangaers due to the smaller pool of employees has really tainted my experience at GT. If I had the ability to not work with certain individuals, as I did at the Big 4, I could see myself working at GT forever. Becuase I cant avoid working with certain individuals, I will be looking for a change very soon.

Uppers

The ability to take your career in your own hands and have a voice in clients/projects you work on


Downers

Expectations to do everything and be compensated or recognized for going above and beyond


Comments

The quality of life is not significantly better than a Big4. If the hours are so similar, a Big4 firm may be a better bet to showcase on a resume.
