    Rewarding, challenging and exciting. I've never worked with a more diverse, interesting, and talented group of people.

    Pros

    My co-workers! And the fact that everyday I assist hardworking and stressed out people solve their state and federal tax problems. It is tremendously rewarding. Also, I believe that the company culture is one that is very caring, at least relative to other workplaces. Personal and professional growth is encouraged.

    Cons

    Upper management has been very out of touch in recent years. Changes have been made to the company that NEVER should have been allowed to be implemented. Morale has been quite low. HOWEVER, Great strides have been made very recently. Things are looking up significantly.

    The commute is pretty brutal for many employees.... and the ability to work flex time and/or from home is non-existent for most of us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through with the changes that are beginning to take place and PLEASE get rid of the multiple layers of management by re-allocating these poor people so that their talent and skills are not wasted. Send ltr's along with the consultants from time to time to meet with clients. Its the fastest and most efficient way for the consultants to learn how to sell the right product to the right customer and it will give the consultants more confidence.

    Pros

    The premise behind a tax resolution firm is solid.
    The desire to help those who have gotten into a difficult financial situation is admirable

    Cons

    Management is more concerned in the sales aspects then in the best resolution for a client. The focus is on doing enough work to show that a contract has been satisfied. No consideration is given to what is the best overall course of action for a client. Management also micromanages those who do not need day to day attention. Focus is on numbers and spreadsheets and no time is taken to determine what actual work is being done. A bonus structure is in place that is virtually impossible to reach. On the rare occasion that a goal is reached management places an even more unrealistic goal in place. Management does not think more than one step ahead, more attention needs to be placed on the big picture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the people who are working and not just the numbers on a spreadsheet. Customer service is based on more than just a fuzzy feeling through the process. The quality of the result is as important as obtaining a result
