I have been working at Cherry Bekaert full-time for more than a year

Pros

Workplace conducive for adequate performance. Firm provides ample training opportunities through CBH University

Cons

Performanc evaluation system is mediocre with very little enforcement of evaluation requirements by upper management. Firm has terminated a number of employees without cause and very little explanation. This has caused poor morale and staff feeling that management is more concerned with cost containment than with professional development.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Enforcement of performance evaluation for all staff levels including manager and above

    I have been working at Cherry Bekaert

    Pros

    Vacation time is adequate
    Met some good people that were very good at their job at my peer level

    Cons

    The Tyson's Corner office has fallen apart. In the audit department there are less than 5 people left from last busy season below partner. In the tax department there were approxamately 20 people at the end of last busy season and there is 1 person left. There has been a compelte inability to recruit any talent after the departures. The problems that have contributed to the fall-out was largely due to management which has not changed at all. The same decision makers are in place. As a result, it is highly unlikely that things will change in the future. The fact is that the firm as a whole doesn't have an understanding of the Northern Virginia market and lacks the leadership to step in and make sure that the right people/leaders are in place to do the right thing. There was a great group of highly productive energetic people that worked there and now they are all gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Partners need to listed to the managers and seniors when they provide feedback. Generally, they will have a good idea of what is going on in the office and ways to improve morale. Don't wait to address important issues. Reward high performers.

    I have been working at Cherry Bekaert

    Pros

    I really like a lot of people I work with, both in my office and with people in other offices. Most people are really nice.

    Most people really care about doing a good job for the clients.

    PTO is pretty good, especially compared to my friends.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to work long hours around deadlines, but that is part of the industry.
