    Very high pressure environment with sometimes unreasonable expectations for performance. Brokers can become fixated upon commissions and become territorial about clients. Limited growth potential due.

    Pros

    Good place to start your accounting career not in public accounting. Coworkers are decent and mostly helpful. Generous vacation (if your workload ever allows you to take it).

    Cons

    Pay rates are well below industry average, heck even below the bottom 25%. High, high turnover. Poor training. Bottom of the barrel heath benefits. A 1.5% 401K match, again, well below average. Workload always increases, your pay does not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in proper compensation levels; then turnover won't be so high and people will stay for more than 1-2 years. Hire more accountants and coordinators or ask the do-nothing managers to help out with accounting work. They all seem to be the ones taking the longest vacations, the hour-long lunches, and then leaving at 4pm. Streamline the management structure. There are too many supervisors "managing" one or two accountants. If you pay people what they are worth, you might actually get qualified candidates and not have to fire people.
