good people, very supportive

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Armanino McKenna full-time

ProsGood people overall. The CPA partner model is a little strange in that they have some 40 partners in a 200 person firm. Good place to launch a career but don't expect to make a lot of money. Very stable environment however.

ConsA little on the cheap side. Employee benefit responsibility is very high compared to similar sized companies. A family of 4 for example will pay out $9K a year not including annual deductible. Employee rewards for job well done is non existent.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Not one of the better places I've worked

Consmany of the leaders have known each other forever and are tied a little too closely. Won't try new things to really grow the business besides buying companies.

Structured organization with defined role hierarchy

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Armanino McKenna full-time

ProsArmanino is a good company with great benefits and competitive pay. They are aggressively expanding into emerging consultant markets and is quickly growing their consulting department quickly.

ConsStrong expectation to meeting billable hours quota. Organization is very disconnected from from one practice to another and I haven't seen much of an ability to switch teams internally.

Advice to Senior ManagementAn emphasis on billable hours outweighs time for self-training and growth to find one niche ability is difficult to work under.
