    "A great place to work"...well at least for the first few months

    Staff Associate (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsVery friendly staff
    Great location in midtown
    Encourages work life balance

    Cons"Throw others under the bus" environment
    Performance reviews untimely
    Management plays favorites
    Too much office gossip

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to communicate performance feedback to its employees in a more timely manner. Because work is assigned by one director within a department, personal favorites are usually given preference. The environment does not foster growth, and promotions usually lag behind comparable firms.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It was a learning experience. Worked on many clients in many industries. Also prepared tax returns.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPotential to learn alot from the various clients/industries that are there.
    Low turnover, but they do lay off every season so if you work hard, you will be recognized.

    ConsLow employee morale, favoritism, politics, certain managers not pleasant to deal with. HR not very friendly at times.
    During busy season, hours can be tough but that is standard in this industry.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
