I have been working at Whitley Penn full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Work hard, play hard culture! Throughout my career I have always felt like I could trust the Partners. They are very approachable and have always done everything in their power to help when I needed it. The Partners are always very honest about how the firm is doing, even in times where the economy was not doing well. If I ever left, it would be for an industry position, because there is no better firm around.

Cons

We do have high expectations of work ethic and integrity, which some people may find intimidating. We are also very growth and business development focused, which is not for everyone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure the staff and seniors know that your door is always open.

    Pros

    Don't listen to their bs if you have a good job stay where you are!

    Cons

    They have nothing positive to say. No time to train expect you to walk in and know how they work. Most have their noses in the air, can't even say good morning. Don't appreciate anything. Use you up and spit you out. So glad to be out of here. HR is awful. The people I work for now are thrilled with my knowledge and never say "I have work but no time to train you".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people the way you expect to be treated. Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. Hope you get a good laugh out of this!

    Pros

    Clients -Large firm so there is different expertise for many different kinds of tax issues.
    Employees - Great for career focused individuals right out of college with no responsibilities.

    Cons

    Whether you are a employee or a client you are truly just a number.
    The fees are very high for the work they perform and they might have a senior manager sign the return showing they did the work but really an intern did it.
    Unless you are in upper management your family and time does not matter to them. They will work you to death and get rid of you when they are done. It is extremely long hours and they do not care about your family or your personal needs.
    They have the employees fill out surveys said what a great company they are so they can get another award, but everyone is scared to tell the truth. The have competely differnet rules for every level. Turnover is very high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about how big the company is and running the lower level employees into the ground. Treat every level the same.
