I worked at Dixon Hughes Goodman full-time for more than a yearPros
The company really allows you to get experience in a variety of areas including individual tax, federal tax and state and local tax, as well as the opportunity to work with various types of entities. They give you a lot of freedom (no "big brother" watching over you) and allow you to self-manage and really take ownership of your work. The health benefits were good, a lot of options. Plus, the amount of time off was very generous (sick and PTO combined). It was a good job for my first job out of college.Cons
Company culture is lacking. There was little communication and camaraderie among the general areas (tax, audit and consulting). The "tone from the top" seemed a little too focused on making money and not on taking care of their employees. The overtime was really draining, which is pretty typical of public accounting firms, but that doesn't make it right. There were almost no incentives for employees either, I rarely heard of anyone receiving a bonus.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Give employees an incentive to go above and beyond, and work on creating a more inclusive culture.RecommendsNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO

I applied to interview on campus. There was a dinner the night before the interviews for selected students. The interview was very easy, but it was hard to tell how it went. The interviewer mostly wanted me to ask him questions about the firm. It sounded like there were not many positions available in the Tyson's office. Everyone I met from the firm from the recruiter, partner, first year associate, were all extremely friendly.Interview Questions
