I worked at Wipfli full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Challenging work
Advancement possibility if you're willing to work long and difficult hours.
Knowledgeable individuals at the Senior, Manager, and Sr. Manager position who seem genuinely interested in teaching and mentoring.

Cons

Never any staff available to do tax work - all dedicated to A&A department once April 15th has passed.
Partners are not interested in sharing knowledge.
Leadership has no time for anyone - only the very top industry leaders are visible to them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be consistent with message across all office locations.
Good performers don't have time to complain - their busy working - don't overlook them because you're dealing with a squeaky wheel.
Partners who routinely fire staff after 12-24 months of work are more likely to be the problem rather than the staff.

    Pros

    The people are terrific if you can take upper management out of the mix. Don't get me wrong, a few of the partners were wonderful, but on a whole, I wouldn't want to work for them.

    Cons

    Compensation is not great and moving up in the company can sometimes require a lot of extra work in order for you to be rewarded.

    Pros

    Company leadership seems committed to making Wipfli the kind of place you never want to leave. Work environment and culture are friendly, if subdued.

    Cons

    Company is trying to grow quickly - which often means changing course midstream. Which means that the strategies and projects a marketer might be working on could suddenly be cut. Not good. Also, the company makes you sign a contract saying you'll work 46 hours or more per week. This may be OK for CPAs, but not for marketers and other folks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to retain employees, I would suggest ending the 46-hour workweek requirement and moving away from the high-deductible health plans.
