    I have been working at CBIZ full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. Can get up to 4 weeks vacation plus extra 5 days at 10th anniversary. Also earn .5 of sick time each month. Good insurance ( can only speak for single person since not married and no kids). 401k - get 50% match up to 6% of salary Can get commissions for referrals and new business. Doesn't happen all the time but is available.

    Cons

    Busy during thanksgiving and Christmas so don't have as much time to enjoy them.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward extra effort more when you see it. Find a way to spread the commissions amongst people because everyone has a hand in the work and it's not 100% just for the person who happened to be the one who answered the phone call for the new client.

    Started out fine with enough promise but quickly realized management is incompetent.

    Pros

    Decent national resources. Variety in customer base.

    Cons

    Unacceptable branding - no one knows who CBIZ is (despite supposed #8 ranking), so no one knows what you've done when interviewing for your next job when you want out. Benefits are sub-par to bad - especially when CBIZ is a 'benefits specialist.' Pathetic. Growth potential - non-existent. Their offices are hemorrhaging clients and staff. Losing clients to much smaller accounting firms and NOT picking up any big 4 or gt work. They can't even hold onto small nonprofits. Practice Leader, Sr Mgrs, Mgrs, Seniors, and Staff all leaving in droves. The structure doesn't make sense for an attest firm - wonder why they are practically the only company with an alternative practice structure? Only growth is happening from them buying firms across the nation - then when those firms don't work out, they just fire everybody. I can't even count how many different accounting firms in FL that have been bought and dissolved.
