    I worked at Plante Moran full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable firm in terms of client base, adjustable desks that let you stand while working, nice offices. Good presence in Detroit, but unknown elsewhere.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive when compared to other large public accounting firms. Bonuses are low. They don't seem to be in touch with what is considered competitive pay, especially for CPA's who have a lot of other opportunities.

    Benefits very expensive if you want to cover a spouse and/or children

    401k match is low

    Very political, must know how to play the game

    "Relatively jerk free" is not the best description of this environment

    Very high workload and very high expectations from day one with very little training

    A somewhat immature environment for experienced hires; fraternity/sorority mentality seems to exist in many departments, including HR and administration

    They will not consider anyone at the in-charge level and above who doesn't have a CPA; this has it's pluses, but it also causes the firm to lose out on people who could have some good potential to grow in the firm.

    Very old-fashioned in some regards when it comes to policies and administrative procedures, and pay practices.

    Extremely competitive; even though we were part of the same team, I got the sense that some people would stab me in the back in a moment if given a chance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Educate yourselves and get current on compensation and benefits. Consider non-CPA's for high potential candidates. The firm is not jerk-free that phrase should be reconsidered. Stop the political games. Stop promoting people who are aggressive jerks. Provide more training for lateral hires at the experienced level. Stop forcing people to drink kool aid and actually listen to some constructive feedback. Stop thinking you walk on water because somehow you get on the Fortune list each year.
