Senior Audit and Assurance Associate (Former Employee), Sacramento, CA – August 25, 2014
Pros: niche explosure for banking and schools
Cons: limited growth potential, frequent travel, high turnover, management
My impression of this firm is that they reward the shrewd and the heartless, and integrity is not at the top of the priority list. Work life balance is about what you'd get at Big 4. Travel is often. If you don't like banks or schools, you probably won't like it here.

Pros: 4 weeks paid vacation
Cons: mandatory saturdays
Nice place to work for public accounting. A typical day consists of going to a client and auditing their financial statements. Management does their best. They don't understand that motivation comes from things other than money.
Many opportunities to advance, steady work, good pay
IT Risk Consultant - Senior Staff (Current Employee), New York, NY – February 18, 2014
Pros: travel, work from home
The job has seasonalities (really slow in Feb-April; extremely busy in Oct-Jan), but it's got a lot of perks. 4 weeks of PTO, great health/dental benefits. Work from home a lot if I'm not at a client site. Depending on how you view the travel, it can be a pain or a great joy. Most of us travel anywhere between 40-70% in the year.
