Pros

This firm basically lets you take off anytime you want nine months out of the year with a morning's notice. You can leave early any day during busy season so long as you think of some reasonable excuse. The only real expectation is that you get your work done at some point. After the economic downturn, the firm was able to hire more intelligent staff than they had in the past. So, it should be a better place to work now.

Cons

For some reason, this firm hired quite a few people who did not belong in the accounting profession. As you may notice, a lot of people on this board can barely write. This was typical at the staff level and remained at the senior and management levels. The "backstabbing" people were the ones trying to tell management to get rid of some of these idiots. Everyone received close to the same raise even though there was a clear difference in performance.

Advice to Management

Fire some of these morons and give the good workers higher pay.

    Pros

    Additional PTO from working busy season hours Diverse crowd of people to work with Firm events (Picnic, Holiday party) Extensive exposure into the hedge fund industry Ability for seniors to manage clients and coach new staff

    Cons

    Unrealistic budgets and expectations Lack of training opportunity for new staff (start in mid-November but only have little time to prepare for busy season which can overwhelm them) Very long hours during busy season and even for jobs out of season Management having the quick trigger of letting people go

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees of what they need to help them to achieve success in the firm. Most often when giving performance reviews it can hurt the staff's confidence and management really needs to help out the staff from a humanistic standpoint.


  2. The company LOOKS good when you start off. BUT you learn quickly how much politics is involved.

    Pros

    The employees are very friendly and the company DOES try to keep employees happy.

    Cons

    to continue from my "pros" sentence, the company FAILS miserably in TRYING to keep us happy! so much politics. and the seniors and managers are HORRIBLE! they do not explain to you. the training sucks its all on the job training.

    Advice to Management

    they need to learn to be patient and help the juniors instead of actually yell at them in front of everyone as if they are in some class room. no such thing as corporate environment!
