ProsGood people who are smart, knowledgeable and dedicated to providing great client service.

ConsPartners do not realize that they have good people. Management decisions seem to be made by the hottest item of the day. There is no clear leadership. The Audit and Tax Practices are for the most part two completely separate entities; with little or no interaction between the two. There is no emphasis on developing from within, it seems more likelly they will recruit and hire Partners from other firms. They preach "One Firm" and "Elite" but there is little practice. The Administrative side (Marketing, training, HR) of the firm really has no clue what the client service accountants do on a day to day basis.

Advice to Senior ManagementValue your greatest asset, develop it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
