I can honestly say that the firm is committed to growth and has opportunities for those who are committed to putting in the effort. The firm operates under the career equity model, meaning that you are the driver of your own career. You are expected to work outside your comfort zone, since the firm operates under the "One Firm" concept. Some would see this as a negative, but I have found it tremendously beneficial from a professional growth standpoint.
Because client service is extremely important, work life balance can be a bit of a struggle at times. Keep in mind that this is public accounting, so this is an industry expectation that is not confined to RubinBrown.
Advice to Management
Reward high performers and manage out low performers. This firm has tremendous talent and capabilities. There is never a reason to settle for sub-par talent or team members who are not committed to the firm's mission and vision.

Strictly behavioral in nature along with some in depth questions about background and work experiences. Everybody was really nice, laid-back conversational interviews. The working space in the office is a bit bland but located in a nice part of town. Heard back about offer in approximately 2 weeks within interviewing on site
