While you were training to be an accountant, chances are you already decided which type of accounting firm you wanted to work for. Perhaps you wanted to work as an accountant for a large firm. Maybe the name and the reputation impressed you. You may even have been attracted to the idea of working in a large city such as New York or Chicago. On the other hand, you might have been one of those that preferred the idea of working for a small firm. Maybe you wanted a job with less pressure, and one that allows you to be more intimate with clients.
