    Pros

    They understand a work life balance.
    They have a fair pay scale.
    Competitive Benefits
    Base level staff are very nice

    Cons

    Senior Management and Partners are out of touch.
    Poor communication throughout the company.
    Not much concern on keeping talented staff on board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the past 2 years we have lost 50% of our offices employees. Many people start out at our office and leave after 1-2 years. Senior management and Partners are very tough on employees, and many people feel like they are walking on eggshells.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers.
    Decent location.
    Some good perks.

    Cons

    Management was terrible. My manager gave me an outstanding review only to fire me 2 weeks later for a single mistake on a issue. Yes this issue was my fault but hardly deserved termination after my review from 2 weeks before. Should have warrented a warning. Left a bad taste in my mouth as to loyalty. Terrible butt kissing from certain memeber of the IT team in Milwaukee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more with employees. Get management in each location instead of a single incompetent manager in Minneapolis.

    Pros

    Free drinks, good people to work with, long hours until the job got completed. Overall, I think it was okay.

    Cons

    I wish there was more opportunity to grow with the company. Both financially and in the position that I held.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep expanding and developing your people as this is the competative advantage for any business. This will pay off in the future!

    I worked at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause

    Pros

    - the firm offers a multitude of opportunities for new graduates to learn about all aspects of accounting.

    Cons

    - the firm is extremely competive and often too hard on new graduates ... especially when they test you in many different areas simultaneously (i.e. tax, audit, consulting)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that it would help if the management gained a better understanding of their staffs wants/needs and helped guide them.
