    Pros

    Incredible group of people, made the tough busy season hours manageable.

    Cons

    Long hours (as expected), salary for a new hire with a Masters Degree is the same as a new hire with Undergraduate degree.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider pay scale based on merit and level of work.

    Pros

    Bethesda, itself is a beautiful place to work. Plenty of accessible great places to eat, and in walking distance to most employers.

    Cons

    A company full of negative energy, and unprofessionalism. The atmosphere reminds you of high school, in which opinions rank higher than knowledge, respect and hard work. It's apparent my ability to be innovative, supportive and a mentor to the team I had, was not what they wanted. Additionally, I did not fit the prototype being a smart, Black woman - but, I'm sorely missed.

    Advice to Management

    Respect everyone and their ideas. When you hire someone to come in, take charge and create a productive team - let them do just that. Do not allow an Executive Assistant and employees who are less knowledgeable technically to run a department when that's not what they were hired to do.

    Pros

    Easy interview process, great vacation package, and friendly staff.

    Cons

    Poorly managed, lazy upper management, very little formal training,

    Advice to Management

    Stop sitting in your office and get to know the staff. The National Firm Administration Managers are lazy and rude.

    Pros

    Bethesda is a beautiful place to work. Plenty of workplace outings to try and make up for being over worked.

    Cons

    Unprofessional management, be work culture. No room for an innovative person eon likes to work and excel. Racism both gender and ethnically charged.

    Advice to Management

    Fresh faces, younger more technically knowledgable people. Respecting management and those with authority. Not allowing an EXec Asst to run an operation full of CPA's.

    Pros

    Senior manager was nice and company supports pregnancy

    Cons

    HR is never on your side (ears and eyes are everywhere), parking is $10 a day; did not like manager, long hours, .. mostly its HR why I didn't take the job. HR is very nosy and fake. They pretend to be there for you but really just fake it. I do not recommend this office.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new HR

    Pros

    If you put in your effort and time, your effort will be acknowledged. They make sure you receive the appreciation you deserve. Also, they are flexible adjusting your portfolio if you would like to experience different industry.

    Cons

    Although you will be recognized for your efforts, that does not mean it will get translated into your paycheck. Benefits are not the greatest.

    Advice to Management

    There is uneven distribution of workload to different engagement team. Management should make sure staffing issues are resolved prior to the busy season.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and work-life balance. Employers respect your time-off such as don't try to contact you when you're on vacation. I came from a small CPA firm where managers still contacted me when I'm away on my days off or over the weekend. Managers are responsible and helpful and care about their staffs.

    Cons

    Staffs are decent; not a lot of high-quality peers for you to learn from. Not a lot of career opportunities since the firm specialized in real-estate related audits and accounting practices. So unless you're dedicating your career to real-estate, don't join.

    Pros

    Many different experiences in a short amount of time. Access to partners.
    Good co-workers who become friends - how could they not when you work so many hours during busy season? Good PTO and hours outside of busy season. Cares about community service. Offers growth opportunities based more on merit than time in the job.

    Cons

    Too many hours required during busy season. Too many staff have too little productive work outside of busy season.

    Advice to Management

    Since the merger too many processes have gotten bureaucratic. Communicate more in person and less via email.

    Pros

    Good working environment, reasonable work life balance for the industry (busy season is busy, but not ridicules busy).

    Cons

    Even though consider themselves as a national firm, still acting like a regional firm, no resources, no significant training, no investment in employees. Also, working for the firm doesn't open doors like working for a big 4.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employees, that's your most important asset
