Disapproves of CEO

Pros

You learn a little bit about taxes, at least at the personal level...a good stepping stone if you're planning to break into the taxation sector.

Cons

A lot of arrogant peers

Advice to Management

Hire more qualified tax preparers, and pay them more.

    Pros

    It is seasonal work of 16 weeks allowing you to work at other job to give you additional income. You progress at your own rate. Although you can set the days and hours worked, the more you are available, the better chance to be scheduled more hours. Great open friendly enviroment. The company does provide excellant opportunity for training to increase tax knowledge.

    Cons

    You may not get the number of hours to work you would like to have as it only 16 weeks. You need to be more of a sales person and actually get out there to promote yourself than in past years.

    Advice to Management

    I find the communication was not alway s there or forthcoming.


  2. Just beginning, love the industry so far.

    Pros

    The managers have worked with my schedule so I can get back into the workforce while continuing to raise my children. They have fantastic training and a great outlook to the future.

    Cons

    You start at the bottom which is not necessarily a con. The pay this year is low, but with it comes extraordinary opportunities to take classes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are doing. Taking the time to train Tax Professionals is the way to go. In the past you hired and fired (at least I heard that was the culture.) The culture to train and have experienced Tax Pros will pay off in the end!
