    Pros

    Frank, Rimerman allows you to focus on what you are good at and what you enjoy doing. Work-life balance exists here, working from home a day a week or working remotely.

    Cons

    There is favoritism among certain managers and associates which is seen by the entire team and can sometimes cause problems with other associates not being treated the same.

    Pros

    Good place to work good management and people, best job I've had in a long time.

    No cons for now. So far so good.

    Pros

    The people that work here are outstanding. I am still friends with my coworkers even after I left the firm.

    Cons

    Overworked and underpaid. As a young associate you are expected to work too many hours. Two long busy seasons every year where you work from 8am to 10pm. The managers and partners work just as hard or harder as the associates, so it does not seem like a sustainable future.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the outstanding personalities at the firm. Keep up the college recruitment, but don't tell students that you are very different from the Big 4 when you work people just as hard.

    Pros

    The people at the company are second to none. They hire the best people out there.
    You learn a lot of technical skills to move to another company after working there - to either stay in public accounting, or move to an industry job.
    The benefits are fantastic.
    They had a lot of social events too throughout the year.

    Cons

    Main challenge just like most places in public accounting is the hours. Sometimes the culture there doesn't put brakes on people to stop them from working too many hours. The partners need to watch out for their younger staff so they don't burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to try to stress some balance between work and time off to retain more employees.

    Pros

    The company culture is one of the best I have ever seen. It is like being a part of a big family here. Every new hire is carefully selected to ensure not only for their accounting skills but also how well they will work with the people specifically at Frank Rimerman.

    Cons

    There were very few cons for working here. However, I did wish there were some more marquee accounts that I was able to work on that sparked my curiosity more.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you are doing. The culture of the company is its biggest asset when competing to hire fresh grads out of college.

    always busy, never a dull moment, and plenty of people to help you out. Great place to gain experience out of college.

    no enough training, and not very focused on employee growth.

    Please train your incoming associates better.

    Pros

    Great people, very smart, top notch, better compensation AND better balance than big 4... no brainer if you're looking for an acct firm to join.

    Cons

    new staff members seem a little lack luster, but anyone who makes it past a year seems to be pretty sharp. Not a lot you can do after unless you want to say in accounting

    Generally speaking this is a low stress environment compared to other public accounting firms, especially the Big 4!
    Awesome culture in the Firm cascading down from top leadership
    Very competitive salaries, great work environment
    Passionate about helping each employee reach their potential

    Cons

    Sometimes feels a bit small
    Not many international clients

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and remain true to the FRC mission.

    Pros

    Fun culture (lots of firm-sponsored social events), light hearted atmosphere, and great first job out of college (get to try out different departments before choosing).

    Cons

    Some of the smaller departments, by nature, don't have as much priority in the eyes of the partners. Turnover in these groups have a significant impact on the employees and clients, making it difficult for the partners to ensure continuity. At times, I felt as though better decisions could have been made to keep the right people.

    Pros

    Great people overall. The managers and partners are pretty understanding of their staff and try hard to make the work environment a pleasant and enjoyable one. It's an entrepreneurial environment which means there are opportunities if you go for them. Effort and passion are definitely recognized here, and the firm does have more of a family feel to it than some other places where you might just be a number; a good alternative to any big 4 firm.

    Cons

    Long hours during busy season, but that goes for any public accounting firm. Benefits not as good as one would wish.

    Advice to Management

    Improve benefits, offer HSA high deductible health insurance.
