    Pros

    Work requirements allows you to greatly improve accounting knowledge, tasks performed allows you to stand out when applying for a job. Managers practice open door policy and always willing to teach.

    Cons

    Advancement is very rare, month end close is long, assigned responsibilities are fixed and doesn't allow you to learn outside of tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Great Managers. Distribute projects among staff accountants and not only seniors.

    Pros

    FNF is wonderful if you help bring in the cash. (Support people are vulnerable during economic slowdowns.) They are not afraid to pay for performance and the benefits are good. They don't put up with slackers, which is good if you're not a slacker. You can learn a lot about running a business working there. They prepare you well to go off on your own!

    Cons

    The main cons are the typical cons associated with working at a Fortune 500 company. As they have gotten bigger, they have lost a lot of the entrepreneurial spirit that helped make them the biggest and most profitable in the industry. The intense bottom-line focus is jarring if you aren't used to it. Some managers are ruthless, sociopathic ladder-climbers more focused on their bosses than on their own people. As long as they remain profitable, they get to stick around.

    Advice to Management

    Take a longer view than just the current quarter earnings results. There is a finite number of top-notch people in the industry and it makes no sense to burn through them just to make Wall Street happy this month. Listen to feedback from the trenches.

    Pros

    You are able to learn on the job. More than a book in a classroom can teach you. Enjoy the people you work with

    Cons

    The only downside is it is a good Company but large and you have to make yourself known or you will get lost in it.

    Advice to Management

    Before you lay off a loyal Employee find out if they are willing to take a different position even w/lesser pay.

    Pros

    Contractors are paid well.... probably to make up for the working environment.

    Cons

    The Wires team has been consistently the worst-performing Agile team in the company. Instead of tackling the underlying issues, the team's technical management likes to blame individuals. He fails to understand basic concepts in Agile. Leadership doesn't mean forcing your will upon others and intimidating those who disagree. True leaders lift their team members, not disparage and insult them in front of the team.

    Advice to Management

    Train your team's management

    Pros

    Not a safe place to work

    Cons

    Upper management entices young girls -freshmen in college, young professionals, ambitious with promising futures, to work administration roles. Manipulating their power to sexually harass and abuse women.

    Pros

    401(k) and Profit Sharing; matching contributions

    Cons

    Horrible working conditions, small minded & incompetent middle management who demean their staff - when they're not sleeping with each other on company time. Senior management is apathetic and does nothing to interfere as long as things remain status quo. Gutless, unprofessional, mean spirited people.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and do something; these middle managers are destroying our brand!
