Tax Intern

Tax Intern (Former Employee)
Peoria, IL

I worked at CliftonLarsonAllen as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe people I worked with were great. As intern I had a lot a questions and the associates were always there to help me.

ConsWork got repetitive at times because I was only able to do individual and trust returns. I would've liked to have done some other types of returns.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

A high learning curve

Tax Intern (Former Employee)
Kennewick, WA

I worked at CliftonLarsonAllen as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe good thing about working during busy season was that on Fridays we would enjoy a social. Everyone would stop the work they were doing and pop open a beer, eat food, and watch television. At my office, we would have food catered to us every Wednesday which was nice, and there is plenty of work which is not something to complain about.

ConsYou will do returns from various firms so one firm will like their return set up in a certain manner while the others will want the return set up differently. This can become frustrating at times

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good start!

Assurance Associate (Current Employee)

I have been working at CliftonLarsonAllen full-time for less than a year

ConsTypical stress of the life of an accountant. This is not a 9-5!

Advice to Senior ManagementShow more appreciation towards staff, it WORKS. I promise

Great Balance

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at CliftonLarsonAllen

ProsThis firm allows you to balance work/social life. If you work hard early into your career, you will get noticed and partners/managers will place more trust/responsibility for you.

ConsNot as prestigious as big 4. The experience differs from office to office.

Great company, great coworkers, long hours

Associate (Current Employee)
Lakeland, FL

I have been working at CliftonLarsonAllen full-time for more than a year

ProsSome weeks are flexible, and you don't have to necessarily work "8-5"

ConsSome weeks you work 7:30am-7pm and some days even later. Sometimes there is pressure to go over your charge hour budget so you can get a job done, so you work more hours but don't get a bonus for extra time at the end of the year.
