    Current Employee - Staff/Senior Audit in West Hartland, CT

    I have been working at Blum Shapiro full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    "Flexible hours" during down periods (which in recent times has been shrinking... see "3 busy seasons" E-Mail from HR and leadership... ) which allows you to play around with your work schedule if something were to come up and you needed to leave early or take a day off. The ability to work from home is always a plus. Great core of young people all starting out with you, experiencing similar things in the industry/life/cpa status etc.

    Cons

    Good Employees are worked to the bone. Leaving the best talent burnt out, frustrated, and disgruntled.

    The work from home ability is sometimes taken too far, as some managers have unreal expectations on employees working after normal business hours/weekend. Direct quote from a manager when a senior mentioned they were concerned about the amount of work on their plates and respective deadlines- "Well you know there is always time between 8 PM and 6 AM" . Work life balance does not exist at times.

    HR is much more reactive then proactive when it comes to salary and current prevailing wage rates for public accountants. In the time I was there, there were a few mini-scandals related to salaries that caused havoc for the company.

    For the pressure put on the employees from management regarding obtaining the CPA (major part of every semi-annual performance review) , Blum is not competitive what so ever in terms of rewarding employees for accomplishing this goal. While I understand they are not "Big 4" -which gives rewards of $5k bonuses and an extra weeks vacation for successfully passing all 4 parts of the CPA exam, as the largest CPA firm in the New England area, they should do a little better than a $100 bottle of champagne (which they tax you on by the way) and a day off. Not to mention there is no pay bump for a senior who becomes a CPA either. Meaning Senior CPAs at Blum could be making as little as $55k a year... I'd assume the fair market value of CPAs would be much greater...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay competitive with salary, and better monitor your employees work schedules/hours or you will most definitely loose your top people.
