Excellent training provided.
Great experience working with a wide variety of large corporate clients
Regular client contact, lots of autonomy and responsibility, working amongst a talented team, variety of audits means every day is different
Variety of work and great team. Always being challenged to jump in the deep end and learn as I go (can go well :P)
The training provided is first class, the people you work with are inspirational, the friends you make are lifelong and the clients you work with and experiences you have are exceptional and are of unrivalled quality.
Occasional long hours.
Busy season is about to begin and that will mean working greater hours than is normally appropriate.
Reward and recognition, few inter-division networking opportunities
You do have to work hard in this company, especially the Audit division. However there is a side of this that is very good for your development. I think it is essential to work hard if you want to progress your career. I still manage to not work too much over time.
