Pros: parties, trips to ractrack
Cons: no senior accountant bonuses, only management and up
in the tax department, new employees get work from every manager/senior that passes out work. Like most public accounting firms, there seems to be a high turnover of employees and some of the projects the "new hires" receive have been done by a different employee every year. This makes workpapers hard to follow, which causes running up (Work in Process which goes to BILLING). Slowing down to learn messy prior year workpapers hurts the QUANTITY of work produced. It is clear to all in the firm- from staff to partners- that QUANTITY of work is more important than QUALITY.
