    good place to explore accounting/consulting in a non-big four culture.

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
    Vienna, VA

    ProsB&C has a great culture, which is one of the most appealing aspects. It decidedly does not have that big 4 accounting, more snooty vibe to it, and employees at all levels seem to actually enjoy working with each other. At the more junior levels, they pay overtime, which makes the longish hours more bearable as well as dis-incentivizes management to overwork employees (because they have to pay them for additional hours worked). B&C has stable, long term clients on the accounting side and a growing consulting practice, and the two sides work well together and present great opportunities to win client work.

    ConsProbably the biggest downside is purely from a name recognition and/or resume perspective. If you go outside the DC metro area (and even within the DC Area), few if any people have heard of B&C. Those who do know the company typically have favorable impressions of it and the employees that work there, but it has much less cache than a PwC or KPMG. Also, the work opportunities within B&C are more limited than in Big 4 environment and most audit and tax work is for stable, but smallish clients. The consulting side has had some growing pain issues and some projects that are likely less desireable than would be available in larger professional services organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management is actually fairly well attuned to junior/ staff issues and in my experience do a good job of communicating both firm and group issues as well as communicating positives and negatives of performance. The culture is fairly open, so i would say the only advice i would give senior management is to make sure your staff is fully engaged and utilized, working on projects that are stimulating to staff and offers staff an opportunity to grow in both leadership as well as expand their professional expertise in certain areas that are attractive to them. I think senior management generally does a good job of this.

    Great place to begin your career in Public Accounting.

    Consultant (Current Employee)
    Vienna, VA

    ProsBeers & Cutler is a great place for entry level employees to learn how to conduct engagements from the ground up. You get the chance to work with not only managers, but also partners and high level clients. There's a great benefits package which include full tuition reimbursement, bonuses for new business and employee referrals. New employees are given a buddy to assist with helping them fit in Beers & Cutler. Employees are recognized for great work on engagements. If you do what is expected of you and go beyond that, you will be rewarded accordingly. Management believes in developing employees.

    ConsSometimes there is lack of direction on engagements. If you're not fast, you can get lost.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand the differences between employees.
