Lacking Integrity

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Hein & Associates full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPromises, 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.

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Low Ballers

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Hein & Associates

ProsEstablished and recognized firm in downtown Denver.

ConsBad 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 Senior ManagementFor marketers provide higher base salary.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great Place to Work

Senior Auditor (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Hein & Associates full-time for more than 3 years

ProsTeam 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

ConsHaving 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 Senior ManagementContinue to invest in your employees, fostering growth, and team work

Excellent culture, plentiful perks, great coworkers.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at Hein & Associates full-time for more than a year

ProsThe atmosphere is super positive, the people who work here are great, the pay is good, the benefits are strong, and the culture is awesome. I love it here.

ConsTax season is... Well, tax season. It's very busy, but the company works hard to take care of people during that time.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou're doing a great job.

I thought High School was over.

Manager (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at Hein & Associates full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat hiring promises. Everything looks good coming in the door. Unfortunately, the follow-through isn't there. Everything is rosy on day one, but before too long, it's clear that there are a different set of priorities at work.

ConsThe cool-kids high school clique is something I thought I'd left behind long ago, but at Hein, that describes the partner group. The firm is among the most profitable in the industry, but there's only one metric: individual utilization. Keep billing at all costs and know that your personal life means nothing.

Advice to Senior ManagementGrow up. Stand behind your people and your commitments to them. Lack of trust was cited as a prevalent issue in firm surveys, but the leaders couldn't figure out why that was an issue.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Overall a Great Company to Work for

Business Advisory Services (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at Hein & Associates full-time for more than a year

ProsIncredibly talented, accessible partners
Great learning opportunities
Interesting client base
Excellent benefits and "perks" (free food, massages, etc)

ConsAt times. it's like being back in high school rather than in a professional work environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt isn't wise to put all of your eggs in one basket - managers may feel that they are indispensible and thus free to treat both superiors and direct reports with less respect than they deserve.
