    I have been working at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The firm has an amazing culture who hire directly from college and devotes a lot of resources to help grow individuals.

    Cons

    Even though raises are overall pretty good, there is no performance based bonuses to incentive employees to work harder than their peers.

    Advice to Management

    Put into place a performance based bonus plan in order to incentive employees to work harder. With performance based bonuses it will make employees feel more instant gratification and could potentially increase retention.

    Pros

    Family mentality when it comes to working with all levels in the firm, transparency in performance and feedback

    Cons

    Benefits are weak, company is in growing pains, both space-wise and work hours demanded

    Advice to Management

    be mindful of the area's trends on benefits, and remember that after a few years many of the team members at the company can jump to a company at any time.

    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

    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.

    I worked at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    I worked at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    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.
