Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP Reviews in San Francisco, CA
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 – The people they hire are great to work with. The work is mediocre but the people make it worth it. Compensation for accounts are above average, which is nice.
Cons – Senior management does not know how to perform their jobs. They try very hard to be a big 4, but they're not. Leadership does not know how to perform C-level duties. Corporate offices and website "look nice" but when push comes to shove during a recession for example, when everyone else cut out office parties, they still had a glamorous one. Senior management publicly annouced that they were NOT doing lay offs, but 2 months later, they did 3 rounds of lay offs. On top of that, they did not even provide severance packages for the people they laid off. Even during the lay-offs, they threw a pricey "post tax season party." Human Resources are a joke, including the performance review process.
Advice to Senior Management – Take some C-level courses.

Pros – Great benefits - Costs less than $20/month for medical/dental/vision
Work directly with partners
Cons – No matter what, "you can always work more hours"
Business professional is expected even though you rarely speak with clients face-to-face
Advice to Senior Management – Allow for flexible scheduling outside of tax season; Working 10's or 9/80 should be an option
Bring back the incentive bonuses for charge hour goals; it's a small expense that can go a long way
