People First?

Manager (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

ProsOpportunity to work on privately-held companies, which could hopefully lead to Controller or CFO opportunities in the future.

Opportunity to obtain work experience necessary to obtain CPA license.

ConsSalary / compensation is well below market. No bonus structure, and health insurance is extremely expensive.

Lack of opportunity for advancement, unless partner's retire.

Upper management more worried about finding merger opportunities, than improving morale or growing the business.

As a result of partner comp levels, billing rates at all levels are extremely high compared to the market (approaching Big 4 rates), which makes it nearly impossible to stay competitive and bring in new business.

Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out how to improve morale at your firm and not work your staff 2500 hours a year.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
