Great place to work.....if you live in Michigan

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Cleveland, OH

Pros- It is a mid-size firm that has most of the resources that would be available to a Big 4 firm.
- Open door policy for most managers/partners
- The PTO policy is very generous

Cons- No name recognition outside of Michigan, Ohio offices (Cleveland especially) not very well known in business community.
- Most training materials address Michigan taxes quite heavily, but don't address Ohio, Illinois, and other states where the firm has offices.
- After a few years you start to feel like a used car salesmen, you need to "sell" projects to clients. It becomes very cuthroat with your peers after a while in order to meet annual sales goals, which can have rediculous thresholds.
- Benefits are awful, especially if you have children and need insurance.

Advice to Senior Management- Need to practice the culture, not just talk about it. Also, don't talk about it so much, you feel like you get brainwashed into believing it.
- Stop wasting $ on the annual conference, use that money to invest in benefits instead, or make the 401k match better.
