    Pros

    Elliott Davis is consistently rated as a "Best Place to Work". They have great flexibility and worklife balance and an excellent work environment. The firm is extremely involved in the community and has a great reputation. Employees are more than coworkers and spend time socializing outside of work.

    Cons

    Elliott Davis is a southeastern regional firm, so you don't have the option to start or transfer in other parts of the US.

    Pros

    Elliott Davis realizes their employees are their assets. Management's goal is to attract and keep talent by creating a career where work/life balance is important, encouraging employees to be the best they can be and providing the resources to achieve this. Elliott Davis is always open to new ideas that better the workplace and its employees. It truly is one of the "Best Places to Work".

    Cons

    Elliott Davis is a public accounting firm so there are times where work is seasonal and we work hard to meet our deadlines which may require overtime. Elliott Davis does the best it can to make our busy seasons enjoyable by providing meals on site, having casual days and doing nice things for its employees.

    Pros

    High standard of work and expectations for auditors. Management is very knowledgeable for the most part, and offers much to learn. Good pay.

    Cons

    Experience with the firm seems to vary from office to office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some management can have a hard time seeing a subordinate's point of view and takes the side of the client when a disagreement arises. I would like to see management have a little understanding in these sorts of situations.

    Pros

    You get treated like a person instead of a "human resource." Partners are approachable. Good clients and a good reputation in the southeast. People seem committed to quality work and doing the right thing.

    Cons

    Honestly, I wish I'd come here a long time ago, rather than starting at a national firm. It's not Big 4, so the prestige is not the same. on the other hand, you don't have to put up with the big firm BS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the culture strong.

    Pros

    This is the place to come work if you want to start and stay in public accounting. They are interested in employees staying with the firm long term - not working 2 years, getting burned out and going into industry. It seems like they are interested in working with employees as they progress in their career (and personal life) to make sure that they can stay with the firm regardless of their personal situation.
    They are also extremely active in the communities they are located in. The name recognition in SC is excellent and they are well respected in all locations.

    Cons

    Expansion will be limited to the southeast. If you are interested in transferring to the NY or Boston office in the next few years, this isn't the place for you.

    I worked at Elliott Davis

    Pros

    Great team in place. Great clients and a wide variety of clients to work on. Large enough firm to provide a broad range of opportunities. Long term stability of an older establised firm.

    Cons

    Management has seemed to become less and less understanding of employees needs. The firm is being run like a Big 4 factory instead of the personal, friendly firm of the past. The current leadership seems to make many mistakes in how things are communicated (or not communicated at all). The only personnel that seem to be appreciated are those that are bringing in large new clients. The morale has been very low, so it had gotten much more difficult to have a positive attitude there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to new ideas and communicate with your valued employees.
