I worked at Seiler

Pros

You get a paycheck and benefits. That is really the only Pro of this job, very poor work environment overall.

Cons

Poor communication between levels of management. As a first year employee you are expected to simply figure it out on your own. Not a good place to start your career. Also, there is a high level of gossip between the Human Resources staff and their friends. Also, management is extremely resistant to listening to ideas on how to make the new hire training better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train your new staff more hands on. Give a clear cut map of what due dates are, and what is expected to be done for them. Give more frequent software trainings.

    I have been working at Seiler full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Continuously learning technical, client relations, business development, networking, and time management skills.

    Awesome team and colleagues from all different levels are willing to teach anyone no matter which level you are.

    The partners and senior management are very technical and very approachable.

    Always receive multiple days off which includes PTO and earned Tax Days.

    Promotions and compensation is very reasonable with a great bonus structure and hard work is definitely rewarded.

    Flexible hours are always a plus!

    Firm provides resources to help you grow professionally and personally.

    HR and management looks out for their people well.

    Variety of clients with different types of projects always makes it a great learning process as you can be a generalist or specialist.

     I would definitely recommend anyone who has a passion and have the desire to build their accounting career to join Seiler because the team will help you grow and reach your potentials - the SKY is the limit here!

    One final pro - there are way too many benefits and perks here to list!

    Cons

    More variety and tastier busy season dinners and starting busy season meals at least a month earlier would help the tax seasons to be less stressful. On the same note, minimize the desserts and sweets since the majority of us are health conscious and do not have much time to go to the gym during busy season.

    It would be wonderful if the management helps even out the workload at all levels.

    Adding on new clients to management team would challenge and keep excitement in our workload.

    Understand what it takes to and maintain employees.

    Succession planning can use a step-up.

    Pros

    a great work environment. Most employees are more than willing to help out and assist with any problems you might encounter.

    Cons

    It is a public accounting firm so you will work long hours during busy season, but is still very manageable
