    I have been working at Cotton & Co. (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work-Life Balance is great at this Company. It is a CPA firm so the work can be stressful at times, but the company tries to prevent overworking its employees. Extra effort and time is recognized and often rewarded. The company is large enough to offer great salaries, benefits, and have large clients, but small enough to still get personal attention from upper management and partners. Promotion potential is high since the company is still growing. You will learn a lot on the jobs at Cotton.

    Cons

    Formal Training classes are improving, but there is not alot to choose from once you have been with the Company for a number of years. They will reimburse outside training courses though.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cotton & Co. (Alexandria, VA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume through the website. Heard back from HR the same day. Discussed my background and scheduled an interview over the phone. Met with staffing partner and manager for first interview at the office a week later. Was very conversational and not much on technical background. The interview went well and the staffing partner was going to consider what project to put me on. Called back for a second interview a few weeks later with managing partner and another manager for same type of interview. Received and accepted the offer about a week later. Very quick and painless process. Cotton requires all employees to have or be able to acquire at least a Secret federal clearance so be prepared to submit a detailed background investigation form covering at least the last 7 years of your life.

    Interview Questions

    • i didn't receive any particularly difficult questions. Most were just about my resume and trying to sell Cotton to me.   Answer Question
