    Pros

    The employees are smart, and there are opportunities to work on a variety of projects. It is also easy to take on lots of responsibility early in one's career. Since employees work many hours especially during busy seasson, employees are rewarded with meals and other perks.

    Cons

    Employees work long hours during the traditional busy season of a public accounting firm. They pay is also probably not at the same level as some of the big 4 accounting firms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the new staff as much responsibility as possible early in their careers to keep them interested and involved.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to work with people from different teams. Fairly easy to get your work on display to senior management. There are a few awesome people. Generous PTO and fair pay.

    Cons

    People are very clicky and our office is not very social. Definitely have to adhere to strict preferences of your manager or managers, and it definitely isn't an atmosphere based on independent thinking and creativity. Practices towards towards social media are antiquated and stifling--doesn't have a FB presence, and blocks FB in the office. Mentoring program is a good idea but not structured well. Surprisingly high turnover. In the past 6 months, at least 9 senior level people left. Also, not very transparent or consistent messaging when people do leave--sometimes there are announcements sometimes not. I'm alao convinced that they need to retrain the performance counselors, as I've witnessed inconsistent approaches to feedback. Culture can definitely definitely be described as stuffy and political--a winning combination.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more progressive approach to social media. Also, inspire creativity, dont stifle it. Need to coach performance counselors on how to give positive and negative opinions of their subordinate's work. Both criticism and praise are important to growth and development.
    Provide transparent communication to employees.
