Senior Tax Professional (Former Employee), Tysons Virginia – March 1, 2012
Pros: excellent exposure, name recognition on your resume, smart professionals, decent pay and benefits
Cons: poor career progression, no work/life balance, cliques, extensive outsourcing
Good place to start your career if you join the right group with robust revenues and find a partner willing to coach, but they are few and far between. The best groups are nationwide, and with 100% travel, you will see the "bigs" - the most complex and interesting issues/industries. The culture is cutthroat competitive - partner revenue squabbles abound, – more... professionals 'hoard" work to make sure they meet their billable hours goals, and no one wants to do a thing that's not going to advance their career. Partner revenue constrains cross group/region client service and negatively impacts your career development. Training is whatever you can figure out on your own or pick up from a webinar on our own time - don't ask too many questions - managers DO NOT consider staff development part of their job. Get your CPA/ EA before you join this organization, there is NO time to study. In promotion, marked preference is given to caucasian, sports addicted males - diversity is just good spin. Expect to "commute" from 1.5 to 2.5 hours each way to client and work 12 hours (hotel stays for staff cut into ?? overhead they "allocate" to each engagement).You will log 80+ hours to get 55 billable hours weekly during busy season - and busy season is 8.5 months of the year.
If you survive it all, it's good experience to have early on in your career. Learn as much as you can and use the insider view to evaluate where you want to work next. – less
