Pros

My own Business Unit President is still in charge and does a great job, employees here care about each other and work well together, flexibility in work/life balance and reasonably free to take care of clients as we see fit, national resources from other offices/departments are very helpful most of the time - especially in regard to legal/Health Care Reform

Cons

Over the past few years (2010-2012) there have been layoffs, wage freezes, other business units that shut down, lack of leadership and higher management making good business decisions, turnover, more work for little reward or secrity, the pay is sub-par for our market, removal of helpful local employees (moving specialties to national hubs and taking out of local market) and there is a lot of outdated technology/inefficient practices, little job growth opportunity due to downsized team

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Really truly listen to what your good employees are saying- give good local managers more authority and support both revenue goals and morale/client boosting goals - invest in what works here- having several specialities under one roof- and make those managers accountable to create a good working and producing environment, not just slashing and rewarding top Execs with insincere promises, reward the good employees more and get rid of ineffective, negative people

    A Company With a Bleak Future and Lack of Proper Direction

    Current Employee - Manager  in  New York, NY

    Pros

    From an accountant’s perspective, you end up with much more hands on experience and responsibility than someone of a similar level in a larger accounting firm and the hours are much less than a larger firm

    Cons

    CBIZ as a whole:
    - The practice structure of the company as a whole is way more complicated than it has to be and competitors have figured out more appropriate ways to handle similar structures
    - Branding is non-existent from the corporate level which affects all newly purchased offices and offices in major cities

    CBIZ New York only:
    - The office lacks any motivation from those in senior positions to succeed as an office. Higher ups are stuck in their old ways and refuse to adapt to the ever changing market leaving them in the dust of all the competitors in the New York marketplace
    - Overly large egos destroy office chemistry and teamwork possibilities. Higher ups are very focused on themselves and their goals and not the office.
    - No effort devoted to branding the company in the marketplace
    - Poor treatment and lack of respect of the staff hurts morale and motivation on a daily basis
    - Lack of understanding of what needs to be done internally to fix the office. There are people who prove time and time again that they are incompetent but they remain employed.
    - Poor recruiting practices and university selection leads to a lack of talented new staff acquisitions
    - Lack of resources and understanding of needed personnel in the administrative and non-accounting departments to make the office as a whole succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize how far behind every competitor we are and stop buying offices and leaving them to their own accord. Without a unified practice structure you will be left with an broken office-centric model that will bring no growth to the company or the offices.

    For the New York office you need to make serious and drastic changes to the whole office to improve morale, become a player in the marketplace and turn the office back into the powerhouse it used to be. The current group of professionals is not equipped or motivated enough to put forth the effort needed to accomplish what has become a large task.

    Good place to start out, but career and employee growth took a backseat to office politics

    Pros

    Staff-level accountants have the opportunity to be exposed to a range of accounting disciplines, such as tax, audit/attest, and litigation if desired.

    Cons

    A lack of focus on employee morale negatively impacted motivation for staff, especially in such a demanding and time-intensive career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better balance between pushing staff to do more work while pushing back on clients that are overly demanding or expect the unreasonable.
