    I have been working at Farkouh Furman & Faccio full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    FFF is a work hard atmosphere. management expects the best from their employees and holds everyone to a high standard. Those who can manage, reap the rewards. Some love it and thrive. Can have great career potential and higher than industry bonuses and raises. Funny & entertaining people. Upper management & partners are working hard towards growing the company. Work with interesting clients.

    Cons

    Growing Pains. Place is not for everyone. long hours during tax seasons, but still industry standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep on making efforts to involve the staff in operations and other areas.

    Pros

    Fair bonus and learning experience but most of the work is being rushed through.

    Cons

    What you gave up for good bonus is your personal life, the firm blocks vacation days throughout the year beside the busy season. Management acts cold when you want to take a day off during the block period. The rest of the non busy season is pretty quiet and you can for seminars.

    I worked at Farkouh Furman & Faccio

    Pros

    You do learn a lot if you are willing to work hard and eat your hours. Also, you get to work on some of everything (C corp, S corp, partnership, high net worth, trust, estate etc)

    Cons

    Where do i begin?
    1) Management style=micro, micro and micro. it is mandated for everyone to come 8 am sharp during tax season from M-F and 9am for the weekend regardless how late you worked the night before. Partners will walk around the office at 8 am and 6ish pm to see if anyone is coming late or leaving early. You will definitely hear about it in your review if you are caught coming in late or leaving early.
    2) Working hours=long, long and long. at least 65-70 hrs a week during tax season (not including the hours that staffs eat up because of those unreasonable budget).
    3) turn over rate=high, high, high, most people leave after a year or two. Also, the firm doesn't hesitate to fire the under performers. They normally fire 2 to 3 people in mid-Dec (yup, right before the holidays). New staff will always start with at least 4 or 5 other staffs (this place has 20+ staffs)
    4) Base compensation is below market rate. Bonus is good for the top performers, however, you only get 50% of your bonus up front, 25% of the remaining 9 months later and the remaining 25% another 9 months later. You lose all your deferred bonus if you leave the firm.
    5) you will get 13 vacation days and 5 sick days. 0 reimbursement for cpa review course. one of the partners is almost impossible to work with. office is old. BTW, this is the only place that I know where they locked the office supplies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat your staffs with respect and make improvement on the
    Cons listed above if you want your staffs to stay and grow with the firm
