    Pros

    Working at AMLLP I had the opportunity to try new career paths with support from managers and partners. Encouragement abounds at AMLLP. If you're passionate about a field or specialty, you can take an entrepreneurial approach, with support from your mentors and peers. There is a great work/life balance. This is a great place to work no matter how far into your career you are: you will have opportunities to learn, grow, or plant roots and be part of something great for years to come.

    Cons

    Compensation is good, if you know and can prove your worth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the family-friendly environment, keep to the "old roots" of the companies founders.

    Pros

    Everyone one at Armanino is required to have a breadth of knowledge in their area of expertise. This makes everyone a great asset to the firm.

    Cons

    Smaller firm that doesn't offer the name of the Big 4. I would argue that the talent at lower levels is very competitive and may vary as you move through the ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate well and make culture a bigger focus.

    Pros

    Tons of opportunities - not just your typical Audit or Tax firm. Flexible - schedule, industries, telecommute

    Cons

    Keeping up with the growth.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees - whatever they have to say. You may not want to hear it, but some people want to make improvements (not just complain).

    AM is growing and encourages us to get involved at an early level. I am a senior and feel that the opportunity for me to learn and advance are high. Really encouraged by the overall direction of the firm.

    Cons

    More instant bonuses would be great

    Advice to Management

    Keep up all the communication efforts

    Pros

    A company that has made a number of smart moves in the way of expansion. The internal staff is very pleasant to work with. They always seem to bend over backwards to get you want you need. Overall a good place to start a career at the entry level.

    Cons

    Not a sales culture. Employee recognition is very light. Performance Management is simply a check box. There is a lot of disconnect between management and the staff on the ground doing the day to day work. Management seems more caught up on rankings in the industry rather than team building and rewards for great work done. Also benefit contribution seems to be expensive.

    Pros

    AMLLP is a good place to learn the basics of tax/audit/financial advisory. Also a good place to get exposure to tech clients.

    Cons

    AMLLP is now no different than a Big 4 accounting firm, i.e., your worth is estimated by the number of billable hours that you have.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to make the staff (who have accounting mind sets and demeanor) to be sales people. Less stress on hourly goals
