    I have been working at Citrin Cooperman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The NYC office is a great place to work. The tax department is like a well oiled machine. From the NY Tax partners to the NY staff everyone is willing to help out and get the job done. The NY tax partners look at work loads to determine if work should be shifted around so not one person is overwhelmed. Tax Managers and tax directors sit with staff to guide them in the right direction. Great mentoring program

    Cons

    health insurance can be expensive depending on the plan you choose.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    The Office Manager is the most loyal, kind managers you could ask for. If you have her behind you, you can't lose working here. She will never steer you in the wrong direction and do anything to make you comfortable. Admin/staff are not harassed . As long as you are doing your work and you're on time. No one bothers you. You are able to make up time for personal needs rather then lose out and not get paid, this is a great perk especially for parents who need to take personal time. the owners of the company mostly know all of their employees. You rarely see that in big firms. You're lucky to even meet the owner of a big firm. They are very understanding when it comes to employee needs not only at work but personal problems as well. The office administrator is also one of the greatest people to work for and there are tons of great people here to work with. Partners are kind and treat you as an equal. If you are not happy with where you are or the position you got hired in your manager or HR will usually find somewhere to place you so that your career goal is achieved. A HUGE PERK is if you leave on a good note and you feel like you weren't happy with where you went 99 percent of the time they take you back and 99 percent of the time the people who left DO come back which goes to shows the type of firm this is. Accountants can be hard to work for being they are under a lot of stress with deadlines but it's something that comes with the job like anywhere else. Joel Cooperman and Niles Citrin are two of the nicest men you'll meet and will do anything to give their staff a comfortable working environment.

    Cons

    The maternity leave could be better but that's probably what half the U.S. is saying right now.

    Pros

    I have worked at Citrin Cooperman on a full time basis for many years. It is a well-managed firm that truly cares about their employees. Management is consistently looking for new ways to improve the overall work environment, and it shows by the morale that is felt through the organization. It is a great place to learn and to either launch or continue your career. You will have the opportunity to build long lasting relationships both internally and externally with the clients.

    Cons

    Public accounting in general, at times, demands long hours especially during the peak busy season.

    Pros

    I have been working with the firm for almost 7 years and find the "open door policy" creates a team oriented atmosphere which reduces any competition within the office. Additionally, in my experience, the firm has always sought out the feedback and advice of employees on any improvement or changes the firm is looking to implement. I have felt a part of the growth and future of the firm and always feel I am supported and respected by people within the firm.

    Cons

    The cost of medical benefits is high, yet it may be market standard as medical prices keep increasing.

    1) Hard work is rewarded. 2) Management is flexible and will work with you on your needs/wants 3) There is a great supporting cast and a tremendous amount of resources

    Something to consider for the industry as a whole: You'll spend a lot of time in the office during busy season.

    Pros

    The best thing about the Citrin Cooperman office is the close knit feeling that all the employees share in the office. There are plenty of activities that branch out to all employees, whether it be tennis in the summer, fun runs that help raise money for the Blythedale Children's hospital, happy hours. Another great aspect is that they always present opportunities for furthering education within the accounting field.

    Cons

    Long hours during the busy season

    Pros

    When it wasn't tax season you had your weekend to reflect on what you did wrong in your life to end up here. In addition, there really are great people that work here. It's just too bad none of them have any say in what happens to you.

    Cons

    This is JUST for the New York office. I'm pretty sure the good reviews for this office is from HR trying to get good people to work here. Trust me, it isn't worth it. The company doesn't care about it's employees or the quality of life of its workers. The tax department is a revolving door and all that is left is just a group that LOVES to procrastinate EVEN during tax season. For the small perks you get, you'll have to hear about how much it costs the company. Promotion? Be ready to brown nose the right people. But, as much as life sucks for the life of the accountant in NYC office, it is even worse for the support staff. Even though facilities and the admin staff work hard to keep this place a float, they are treated like second class citizens. There are no perks. No sabbaticals, no bonuses and there is no where to move up. Snow storms? I hope you have a shovel to dig your way to the office. Snow days are minimal and you'll have to hear about how much the company lost when they gave you one. In conclusion New York City is full of modern offices that care about the people that make them a success. This isnt 1982. Don't waste your time. Go for some place that will treat you with respect and pay you better.

    Advice to Management

    EVERY department is important and EVERY employee is important. Instead on focusing on making up good reviews, maybe fix the actual problem. Instead of focusing on mergers, concentrate on why everyone is jumping off the Titanic. You can't put a band-aid on a festering wound. Fix the things that are wrong and maybe you wont have to make up reviews.
