    I worked at Blue & Co as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Staff was helpful and willing to answer any questions I had throughout the internship.

    Cons

    Multiple offices which meant IT was not in-house. This can be annoying if computer problems pop up.

    I have been working at Blue & Co full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There is little red tape and the company provides freedom to be creative in solving problems and completing work. Once overnight travel exceeds a certain threshold, bonuses are awarded.

    Cons

    Working here can involve long hours. The work responsility can be unfairly distributed. Extra effort is not rewarded. I don't feel that management can accurately and effectively assess who has talent and who does not. Due to the lack of company wide standards, cinergy lacks between multiple offices. Appeasement of the client tends to come before quality of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask your employees what they expect or anticipate and let them know if their expectations are reasonable so that it can prevent future disappointment.

    Pros

    The people at Blue is what sets it apart from other firms. Accounting is the same anywhere you go, but the people at Blue will make you feel welcomed and will invest their time in helping you succeed professionally and as a person.

    Cons

    The mind set can be a little traditional, but over all a good place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to create a great work environment to work in.
