    Former Employee - Staff Accountant  in  Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Staff Accountant in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    free parking, overtime pay during tax season, 1/2 Fridays in the Summer, CPA license not required for professional advancement

    Cons

    favoritism - cliques discourage team work
    no communication from management - staff are left in the dark about the direction of the company
    low pay - salaries not comparable with other similar CPA firms in the city
    restrictive work-from-home policy - firm has the technical ability to allow WFH, but management disallows it
    repetitive work - projects are the same on a monthly/quarterly basis leads to boredom and little tax knowledge in the tax dept

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    require senior-level tax managers to obtain a CPA license so the staff will feel motivated to advance their careers as well.

  2.  

    Lack of respect for staff level employees

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Staff Accountant  in  Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Staff Accountant in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    Salary is in line with market for pay for staff accountants and benefits have improved. Maternity leave policy is not so great unless you've been there for over 4 years.

    Cons

    Managers & Principals don't treat staff as a real part of the "team" , contrary to what they like to stress. Staff level employees don't get the basic perks of telecommuting. And in your annual performance, there's always something negative to say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff level is just as important as your seniors & managers. Treating them with a little more respect can go far. Also, having a tax & accounting dept manager that's can't pass the CPA exam doesn't bode well for the staff that's below her, who have obtained their CPA.
