    Pros

    Corporate culture in general is good. The firm cares about its employees' professional development, it also offers fair benefits including 20-day PTO, health insurance, free food for busy season, but no 401K match. Most Colleagues are professional, friendly and supportive.

    Cons

    Some unqualified people are promoted to manager positions. Managers are very LAZY by doing nothing except forwarding emails, ordering food and eating, telling subordinates what to do but not how to do it, and chatting/kissing up their bosses. Middle-level managers are gossip, and "eyes" and "ears" are set everywhere. On-the-job trainings are provided by less experienced employees without a professional or universal training materials, so it is confusing and inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    1. Why the company pays managers big bucks for them to set a negative example for the rest? Partners: please walk out your office and open your eyes to take a close look at what your managers are doing everyday! 2. Why only managers can have their "voice" heard not the base-line employees? Conduct a "supervisor evaluation" by their subordinates annually and listen what they say about their managers.

    Pros

    My work/life balance is excellent, if you are willing there is a ton of learning, Senior staff to Partners are usually all very willing to teach patiently, the CEOs and top management is awesome, they are extremely visible and approachable

    Cons

    Super slow periods for some staff members, not enough overall exposure to other industry, came to a less large firm so I would not be pigeon holed, they haven't realized they are a large company yet,

    Advice to Management

    You made the merge now treat your employees as if they are working at a top 10 accounting firm. No more cutting corners on training cost, here's looking at you NYC.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, solid business base, and great support

    Cons

    My team in particular was dominated by one group that either liked you or didn't. Also, promised benefits, annual raises, etc at certain ranges but fell well short of the mark.

    Pros

    Great people - smart, committed, and fun. Partners are down to earth and nearly all are approachable. There's a real investment in the growth of people. Office is growing and lots opportunities for those willing to reach for them. We work hard, but also have a great time with lots of office activities and outings.

    Cons

    Hours can be long, but not uncommon with public accounting. Everyone pitches in. Speed of growth has outpaced the current infrastructure which is causing some reactionary response.

    Advice to Management

    Step back and make sure that the foundation is solid before moving ahead with different changes. Coordinate communication better at the national corporate level so that the message makes sense once it reaches staff. Involve staff input whenever possible.

    Pros

    Work is not too difficult but client experience is not what was promised. Some of the staff is good but under challenged.

    Cons

    Leaders are more impressed with themselves than they deserve to be. Staff are not so impressed with leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Show more modesty and more appreciation for those who serve our clients.
