    I have been working at Holthouse Carlin & Van Trigt

    Pros

    Casual and comfortable work environment
    Exposure to fairly challenging clients
    Primary empahsis on tax (rather than on audit as in most firms)

    Cons

    Extremely poor communication from management to the staff
    Poor implementation and follow through for policies and decisions
    Scheduling is a disaster
    Terrible office morale/spirit
    HCVT grew very rapidly over the last several years, and is stuck thinking like a small firm trying to fit into its regional firm shoes. While this growth gave the opportunity for career advancements, inadequacies that may have been less evident when the firm was smaller are now painfully clear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    decision making and follow through are lacking, as well as organization and a sense of office cohesion/unity. Also, treat people with respect.
