    I have been working at CBIZ full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I get to work with the smartest professionals, both locally and nationally. The exemplifies teamwork, professionalism and an entrepreneur spirit. The firm also offers outstanding national training and resources.

    Cons

    All I can think of is implementing a national staffing program to further streamline staffing needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the momentum and great work! I am so proud to be part of this amazing organization and culture.

    Poor firm with an operational structure that does not foster growth; avoid if you can.

    I have been working at CBIZ full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work hours during non-peak seasons, partners have an open door policy, competitive salaries with midsize firms (although it wants to be considered a bigger player in the industry).

    Cons

    By far the major factor that turns current employees and former employees sour is the office culture. Many people operate in a clique. If you are included in that clique, you receive preference on engagements, receive vanilla positive evaluations, and are allowed to participate in the planning of all firm functions. If you are not part of the clique? You will be subjected to non-responsive cold stares to jovial greetings and will face a much harder path to management.

    The management level is lacking in quality talent. Most of the managers are not technically sound enough to provide clients with the services MHM offers.

    The staff level is grossly understaffed.

    By having a strategic alliance with CBIZ and by obtaining growth through acquisitions, the shareholders of MHM, the attest practice, have hardly any incentive to grow the business. This has led to partners that are either incapable of selling firm services and/or lacking the desire to do so.

    The firm is not committed to being a leader in technology. I believe this will leave the firm behind the rest of the competition in the long run.

    I will be leaving the firm after busy season. If you are considering this firm, I would suggest reading the other recent reviews of this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your staff room and facilitate an environment where everyone is welcome.
    Replace partners who received pay days by selling their business to CBIZ with younger and hungrier replacements.
    Be committed to technologies that will allow for efficiency and greater synergy.

    Pros

    Some very talented and wonderful people work for this company.

    Cons

    Have suffered from multiple changes in company direction and missed communication opportunities with internal staff. Has lost its personal feel and become more of a cold corporate environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more forthcoming with vision for company and implement a strategic communication chain from the bottom up.

    Pros

    The office vibe is great. You get a nice small office feel, with the nation-wide resources of a big company. All of the associates look to help each other and make the work experience that much better for everybody. Great work/life balance. Very flexible with schedules as long as you get quality work done. I've had great development training with managers and overall couldn't be happier with where I am beginning my career

    Cons

    There is some inconsistent top-to-bottom communication from the senior managers down to the associates, this has led to some stressful situations because we appeared to be pretty unorganized at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We just need to develop a better system of communication, and better planning for the busier times of the year. Both of which I have already started to see improvement.

    WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE UNLESS YOU BACK STAB

    I worked at CBIZ

    Pros

    Pay is good but that is about all I can say.

    Cons

    Drama, drama, drama, team leaders are the absolute worst. All they do is spend their time figuring ways to call out employees to get in good graces with management. You cannot win with this place because H.R is ALWAYS on the upper management side. In the end you will either quit from unhappiness or get fired. All they do is pin point your mistakes and what you can do better when they can't even do it themselves. Miserable the entire time I was there, couldn't wait to get out of there and I did!!!! They have their favorites actually there are approximately 4 employees in the department I was in that got credit for everything at every meeting. Nothing anyone else did was ever acknowledged. It was like it didn't matter what happened they did no wrong. I did discover the only way to get ahead is to back stab coworkers and I for one will not do that. . Never seen such horrible management and team environment as that place. Team leaders and managers and Human Resources are supposed to work with employees to make a great environment to work at but instead all they did was mircro manage and back stab. You will be sorry if you accept a position with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop BACK STABBING! Instead focus on trying to get everyone to work together instead of creating such a bad environment.

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits but thats about it. I really can't think of anything else that is a pro....maybe that it's a large financially stable company.

    Cons

    No leadership or direction from senior management. You are on an island by yourself....sink or swim. There is no training or follow through on anything from management. Plan to spend the majority of your waking hours at your job. A lot of back stabbing and people are quick to throw you under the bus to save face.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try new management style. Don't discount employees and their needs for tools to be successful.

    Pros

    The benefits weren't the best but they were'nt the worst either.

    Cons

    Lack of competent management. Partners play favorites among Senior Managers. It was a very cliquish type of place to work. There was a lot of drama within the office that had been going on for years yet HR, and Management did nothing to fix it. It's acceptable for Senior Managers to curse at Staff-level employees and nothing is done about it. HR is TERRIBLE! I complained to HR about an abusive Senior manager and as a result the HR representative warned the Senior Manager about my complaint, and I was retaliated against. Steer clear of starting your career at this place. It is not worth the drama. The pay was low as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to treat your employees with respect and foster an environment of inclusiveness.
