Pros

-Work is not strenuous -Great work/life balance with work from home -Benefits are above average -Working with the right group can make the job fun -If you put in the work, you will get recognized

Cons

-Pay is ridiculously low, with essentially no raises this year. -Repetitive button pushing in order to process tasks for accounting. You won't know if it's Monday or Thursday.

    Pros

    Locations close to public transportation Work from home access but needs to be approved in advance

    Cons

    Culture has become outsource, outsource, outsource Lack of proper training programs..mostly online training that's not really job related Work is being outsourced to departments that make errors and don't take responsibility Lack of career roadmap..To advance, it's based on being buddy-buddy with management and talking about sports rather than being based on an individual's credentials Low salary compared to competitors Annual reviews/raises aren't based on employee performance but a mathematical formula based on employee's annual earnings..If your salary is too low based on the company's mathematical equation, most likely you wil receive little or no raise Raises for 2012 nonexistent except for upper management..Bonuses not as much as the past Reward system was discontinued with nothing to replace it Employee feedback isn't taken seriously

    Advice to Management

    Don't blame managers for the company not handing out raises...Hard work goes unnoticed..If employees were appreciated more and paid fairly compared to other companies, maybe there wouldn't be so much employee turnover.Listen to the employees that are keeping the company afloat rather than force change and ideas upon them that are unproven and untested

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, descent starting pay, learn basic level accounting.

    Cons

    Same stuff everyday, not every challenging, Need to really enjoy accounting to work here, no CFA or CPA contributions from the company unless you know someone. Not a lot of new things to learn on a daily basis. A lot of ridiculous amort policies need to be remembered, not all of the clients follow the same rules.

    Advice to Management

    Give more information.
