    I have been working at Alexander Aronson Finning & P.C (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone was very helpful and I was able to gain a lot of experience in both audit and tax.

    I worked at Alexander Aronson Finning & P.C full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The office is in Westborough, which is decent commute for people live in the area.

    Cons

    No environment is created for asking questions or helping each other. If you ask your superior questions, they will put those right back on your reviews, saying you are incapable. You feel horrified asking a question or for help. The politics here are disgusting. There are so many people that are gossip mongers, talking garbage behind everyone's back while smiling politely to your face. High volume of billable hours and tight budget make you work extremely over time every day. You have to eat numerous hours to meet the budget. There are also countless 7am meetings. The culture is horrid. It's work work work.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees.

    I worked at Alexander Aronson Finning & P.C full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good opportunities to get exposure early on. I was running my own audits within my first year of working here. Partners are always available to answer questions and help out.

    Cons

    Certain managers act inappropriately at times around the audit staff. Long hours, but that comes with the industry. Extreme inefficiencies at times, especially for certain "old school" team members. This may be frustrating for employees who have come over from other firms and know of more efficient procedures.

    Advice to Management

    I believe AAF can grow and become a great place to work (not just as voted on by the BBJ), however this means that managers and supervisors need to learn to interact more effectively with audit staff and seniors. Obviously there are some really great managers and AAF, but there should be a no-tolerance policy for bullying in the workplace. My greatest fear while working at AAF was that a client could walk in on a supervisor/manager belittling his/her staff.
