    Pros

    Elliott Davis has a unique firm culture which sets us apart from other public accounting firms in the industry. I believe we have the ideal work life balance to succeed and grow in this industry. Flexibility is a key component in the work life balance dynamic, and at Elliott Davis we do have the luxury of working with everyone's schedules in order to achieve the ultimate work life balance. Elliott Davis has a beneficial coaching program which helps everyone from every level develop in their career path

    Cons

    Thus far there are none.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the current strategic path. The open door policy facilitates efficiency.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, flexible work options, nice people. You'll be expected to play a part in business development. Nice location in Charlotte.

    Cons

    Smaller firm, smaller pay check. They pursue business development by coming in at very low fees hoping to make them back down the road. Smaller fees, smaller pay check.

    Advice to Management

    Be open honest about their pros and cons to their own employees. Management does a good job trying to keep the work life balance, but you will get paid a little less than your experience might merit at neighboring firms.

    Pros

    Great working environment - upper management is very approachable and are always willing to provide feedback and answer questions; Work hours are flexible - you aren't constantly bound to a rigid schedule, and to some extent you can come and go as you please - assuming you are getting the work done. Most of the firm's clients are local, so traveling is limited (depending on which industry you decide to specialize in). Compensation is competitive with the larger firms. Firm culture is important and everyone in the office works well together and is pretty fun.

    Cons

    Not much aside from those common in the industry.

    Pros

    Elliott Davis has a great coaching program, and is interested in tailoring my career path to fit my goals. As a first year, I was able to work in several industries, so I was able to make an educated decision about what I wanted to specialize in. Great work/life balance. Elliott Davis has a great internship program that really helped me in my transition from college to full-time position. In 2013, the internship program was ranked #4 in the world!

    Cons

    That I didn't start working here sooner!

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the current strategic path. The open door policy really facilitates great lines of communication.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to show your appreciation to employees for all of our hard work. It is nice to be thanked for our dedication to our employer. Keeping us aware of the future plans of the company help make your employees feel part of the team. Thanks for sharing the information.
