Current Employee - Assurance Senior Associate  in  Los Angeles, CA
Current Employee - Assurance Senior Associate in Los Angeles, CA

Pros

Smart individuals, challenging work and pace, competitive salary for a middle market firm but would be considered low for the big 4

Cons

Mandatory saturdays for 4 months a year. Can be difficult to get promoted in units that are top heavy. Salary increases have been put off with the downturn in the economy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employee retention, even in this difficult market, is going to require employees feeling like they are rewarded for their hard work with more than the right to keep their job.

    Good stepping stone

    Current Employee - Auditor

    Pros

    There is plenty of variety in jobs and you gain lots of experience in all audit sections very quickly. They are pretty flexible about time off when needed for family and will allow you to work from home if you need to stay home for the plumber, etc. Lots of client interaction. All in all, it is a good place to work to get your time in to obtain your CPA license.

    Cons

    Busy season can be grueling if you don't schedule a short vacation somewhere in the middle. I stress short, otherwise you fall behind quickly in work during this time. There is little to no training when you start and upper level staff are too busy to train. High turnover, though there always is in public accounting. Can be very stressful at times. Incentive pay is non-existant in the lower levels no matter how well you do. Job performance reviews are a joke. They seem to have eliminated peer reviews and reviews of your supers, managers and directors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career advisors and mentors are a joke - they don't have time to mentor!

    Pros

    Smart Partner group that brings in interesting work and appreciates the hard work done by the staff. Good mix of mid to large size clients so you learn alot quickly.

    Cons

    We're still operating like a cluster of small firms even though the merger took place nearly 10 years ago. In a national environment, this has it's challenges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We're interested in growing the firm, so teach us how to sell to new clients- include us in more client meetings and prospecting visits.
