    Pros

    The company really takes care of you and try to help you advance in your career. Managers, Senior Managers and even Partners are your mentors and you learn a lot from them, since you are not scare of asking questions and discuss topics. They listen to you if you have an idea and will incorporate that on the next engagement. As well the company has a really fun culture in which everyone helps each other and a great work/life balance. They provide you with free snacks in the break room and they sponsor various events such as Happy Hours or organizations that you want to be involved. The company is growing fast, creating a lot of opportunities in the near future.

    Cons

    Compare to BIG 4 it will take longer to become a manager, after senior you are promoted to supervisor and then manager.
    The clients are smaller than BIG 4 mostly private clients.

    Advice to Management

    Culture is nice, try to keep that as the firm grows. Would be great to have bigger clients.


  2. Great place to learn and make mistakes

    Pros

    The culture at Hein is nice and the tone at the top is okay. The employees are cool but its public accounting. The Busy season is not really busy season but I am accustom to larger clients

    Cons

    The clients tend to be smaller clients and you will work 2 to 3 weeks on a clients and move on to the next client. In turn would cause you to have 2 to 3 clients overlapping

    Advice to Management

    Communication and better compensation

    A great firm that treats their employees with respect, and lots of perks.

    There are none. Working downtown can be, if you have a long commute.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    A fast paced environment...but the people make it completely doable. And they take VERY good care of their employees.

    Cons

    Tax time is brutal...but to be expected at an accounting firm.

    Pros

    Promises, promises... The firm talks a good game to get you interested and in the door - plenty of opportunities, career-growth potential, how to get on the partner track, etc.

    Cons

    Integrity is the cornerstone of the accounting profession. The partners in this firm do not stand behind the commitments to their people. If I were a potential client, I'd think twice about getting into a business relationship with Hein. They treat their people like dirt, reneging on agreements - and then wonder why trust is an issue in the firm. Despite being a hugely profitable firm, they're scrooge-like when it comes to salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that if you tell someone you're supporting them in their career, they're counting on that both personally and professionally.

    Pros

    Established and recognized firm in downtown Denver.

    Cons

    Bad management and low balled on salary for a entry level marketing position. What should have been around $50k annually was $41k. Sad, sad, sad.

    Advice to Management

    For marketers provide higher base salary.

    Pros

    Team environment, great leadership, open door policy, everyone is approachable from staff to partners, great learning environment with hands on experience, the partners are truly invested in you as a person

    Cons

    Having to get your CPA license (in general). Other than that, I really don't have any cons about working at Hein. I really enjoy my job and the people that I get the opportunity to work with to be honest.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your employees, fostering growth, and team work
