Great place to learn but mostly learn-as-you go approach with minimal training
Staff Accountant (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ONMay 19, 2016
As expected, hours during busy season are long. There are a minimum amount of hours that you have to bill during this season, so it becomes very stressful at times. Turnover at the firm is extremely high. Expectations of staff are very high as well and the company provides close to no training. The pay is also well below average for a large public accounting firm. However, colleagues are amazing. Almost everyone is on the same boat, so the environment is friendly at that level, which is very important when you're working long hours.
Pros
Great colleagues
Cons
Long hours & no banking of hours (for the location I'm at)
