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

    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

    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.

    People you are great, but partners/senior management are horrible at managing.

    I worked at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Take some C-level courses.

    I have been working at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP

    Pros

    Great benefits - Costs less than $20/month for medical/dental/vision
    Work directly with partners
    Up-to-date technology

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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
