    I have been working at Calibre CPA Group, PLLC

    Pros

    - opportunities to grow and advance as long as you show initiative
    - open door policy with partners
    - time allocated for cpa exam review and time-off
    - diverse
    - there is a social committee that actually organizes events (happy hour, picnic, holiday party, etc.)
    - audit staff will learn how to do nonprofit tax returns
    - 55hr busy season schedule
    - free lunch during busy season
    - great referral program

    Cons

    - salaries are a tad lower than competitors
    - medical plan coverage not great, no dental and vision plan
    - favoritism exists which result in staff thinking they are privileged
    - promotions from staff to senior are based in impressions rather than actual work results
    - results of committee (partner and manager) meetings are not regularly discussed with staff
    - marketing is weak; firm is not known other than in the labor union arena
    - tax returns are done by audit staff (burden to the 55hr busy season schedule)
    - requirement to come in on saturdays of busy season
    - weak staff scheduling

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to all employees' complaints and suggestions (speak to each employee rather than doing it as a group); improve the mentoring program; communicate regularly to the firm staff about important firm initiatives and events; have a real flex work schedule option
