    Pros

    Fun and energetic managers and partners to work with
    huge growth potential
    great salary with bonuses every six months, hard to beat comp at any other CPA firm in DFW
    got to work on a large variety of clients and some interesting consulting engagements
    have a lot of SEC clients
    Free firm trip every two years for you and your spouse
    great partner track for those that want a long term career in public accounting

    Cons

    It's public accounting so there can be some stress around deadlines
    High expectations
    You have to be self motivated and willing to work extra hours when needed to get projects down, but the hours aren't anything crazy like big 4

    Advice to Management

    Do your best to keep the great culture you have while also experiencing tremendous growth.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Whitley Penn.

    Interview

    Sent resume through career services at my college. They approved me for an interview. Went in and spoke with the college recruiter. He said that he would recommend me to the next step - which was an office visit. I am currently awaiting to be contacted for that.
