    Advice to Management

    The senior management is doing a good job. It would be nice for the senior and management level professionals to get reimbursment for the use of wireless data service for communication devices such as blackberry.

    Pros

    The pay, benefits and PTO are good and competitive

    Cons

    Partners and exec mgmt. in this firm hate each other. Lots of bickering, rude comments, arguments between the old-timers - staff and middle mg t is caught in the middle of this sniper fire. Too much focus on acquiring little 3rd class accounting firms. The result is a lot of new people who have no professional expertise or public company experience. A collection of misfit firms with rude, rowdy "partners" who think they deserve gold medals. Nobody cares about lower levels.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your core values and try to really live by them. Posters and videos don't cut it. Build a truly good firm by removing the bad apples and only bringing in good, smart, caring mgmt.
