This is a great place to work if you would like learn quickly through self-reliance

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsI grew thicker skin after working here, and my critical-thinking skills were enhanced because I was forced to learn things on my own. I also had to learn to not take things personally when management corrected my work. I learned to put my feelings aside when feedback was given. My pay was fair based on my experience level.

ConsEven though I learned to not take things personally at work because of this job, the manner in which feedback is given could use improvement. Management used derisive language to correct employees. I have heard partners scream curse words when things go awry. As a matter of fact, I recall the partner screaming so loudly in the phone that his voice cracked. The work environment is very not as professional as what I would expect for a CPA firm.

I am a generally optimistic person who chooses to not focus on only bad things. I am very loyal and don't change jobs often. I actually like public accounting because it affords the chance to work with clients one-on-one while utilizing technical accounting knowledge. However, not long after working here, I found myself dreading waking up every work day because of the volatile work environment.

    Ups and Downs like every job, average in the public accounting field.

    Staff Associate (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    I have been working at Bentley Bratcher & Associates full-time for less than a year


    Pros: Opportunity to learn all aspects of the firm if you desire. They start you out with a laptop w/remote access and a key to come… Cons: Absolutely no training manual or schedule. Pretty much expected to be working on projects alone the 2nd day. Not quite sure who answers my questions… Advice to Senior Management: Focus on developing a core structure or policy manual. I understand significant strides have been made since 2010 but there… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
