Pros: great culture, community involvement, flexible schedule and more
Cons: pros are not able to be enjoyed by sco
Let me start out by saying this is a great place to work unless you are in the service center. Everyone else seems to love their job and they should there is a great culture with a ton of company events. While I was there 2 US senators came to speak, where else does this happen.
The Service center(SCO) is the institute's home for advanced studies in – more... the field of Micromanagement. Here supervisors often spend more time watching their people work than handling escalations and other time sensitive task they have. For those in the service center you will get to attend 15 minutes of the 3 hour company event and get told you are lucky to get that much. You will see half the building work from home on a Friday. You will be told only 2 members of your group of 10 can be off at a time but see 2 of your 3 supervisors off with the 3rd working only a half day.
If you are hard up for a job like I was when I started here, it is better than nothing. It is an honest job with honest wages. If you are a grass is greener job seeker I would advise you to stay away if the job is in SCO.
I am not bitter and do not regret my time at the AICPA, I worked with some amazing people that made this place a home. But I do hope to warn those seeking a job in the SCO what they are stepping into. – less
