Professional, challenging, but a Big 4 in disguise

Pros

Challenging work, excellent clientele & early exposure to complex tax issues. Co-workers are very kind and quite easy to get along with. High learning curve with an opportunity to excel quickly.

Cons

No work-life balance observed, just a lot of talk about it. Super long hours during busy season (think a minimum of 70 to 80 true hours, maybe 60 on paper after you eat 10-20 hours to meet unreasonable budgets). No overtime and little reward to staff for long hours. Constant micro-managing from senior management can be a nuisance. Sink or swim environment with only hard skills recognized. Soft skills go unnoticed. Good place for boot camp, but not a long term destination for your career.

Advice to Management

Expect reasonable hours from your people, not a work-a-holic mentality. A true work-life balance and bringing back overtime may help employees become more motivated to work longer hours.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for flexible scheduling outside of tax season; Working 10's or 9/80 should be an option Bring back the incentive bonuses for charge hour goals; it's a small expense that can go a long way
