    Weak leadership at the top

    Pros

    -- generous PTO
    -- flexibility
    -- friendly people

    Cons

    We have a new Managing Partner who is thoroughly lacking in innovation and initiative. Poor public speaker. Poor motivator. He was never a well-liked professional when he was among the rank-and-file -- quick with complaints, slow with praise. People are very uneasy with him at the helm. But recent developments may change things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No matter what happens in the future, don't follow "what's always been done before". Stop running the ship as a dictatorship. Praise always works better than silence.

    Pros

    Good paperless system that's been in place for awhile, no crazy tax season hours, plenty of resources if you need to find the answer for a complex problem

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement, mentoring program is a joke, partners will say you don't bill enough total hours and also complain that you spend too much time on returns

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give better raises to staff, allow for growth in responsibility

    Not a great place for me

    Pros

    Holtz Rubentstein Reminick LLP provides a great work-life balance.

    Cons

    The majority of mangement lacks credentials and are nasty in general, promotions are based on favortism/neppotism, salary is low compared to Big 4, long waiting period for benefits, hire and fire based on seasonal needs, the CARE program (part of Human Resources) does not fulfill its goal for employee's mainly due to management's inability communicate effectively to employees, employees are extremely and unnecessarily competitive, the Melville Long Island office carpet has not been updated in over 15 years and the office is dirty (bugs & mold).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate to employees in a time effective manner about their job requirements and provide the necessary training and support for them to assimilate to the specific group.

    From an Admin Perspective

    Former Employee - Administrative  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Administrative in New York, NY

    Pros

    A mid-sized company with offices in NY & LI; worked as an Admin. Given great latitude in terms of scheduling, and the pay was above average for the type of work performed, comparable. The environment is 'officey' but friendly-minded. It's an accounting firm so nothing wild- office parties, outings, end-of-season party at a local restaurant. Go chance to interact with all levels of employees from admins, to entry-level accounting types, to mid- and senior-level partners. Focus is on building a productive environment, rather than sectioning off duties and responsibilites. Free dinners most nights during tax season, and taxi-rides home. Very flexible non-season hours, with early and casual Fridays.

    Cons

    It's an office environment with the usual politcs, though not too strong. Seems unlikely that movement from mid-level management to partner status was possible, most partners were either long-time employees (10+) or outside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't have meeting 8:00AM or earlier.

    Unappreciative Management.

    Current Employee - Audit
    Current Employee - Audit

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, early summer dismissals (leave at 3pm on Fridays in the summer), great variety in industry experience.

    Cons

    Bad management of human capital. Some people are over-scheduled, while others sit in the office rotting away. Management plays favorites a lot. It's frown upon if you get sick or if a female co-worker goes on maternity leave. No employee loyalty. Tax busy seasons are more important than the audit busy season. Coach program is a joke. A couple of overbearing partners that are out to insult you and make sure you know that you are replaceable. It's all about the bottom numbers at the end of the day. People get laid off every year (some based on performance, others just because).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your staff. Treat people with decency. Communicate with lower level staff better. Place value on the administrative staff, as they are the ones doing all the work you don't want to do. Stop playing favorites.

    Pros

    Work Life Balance, friendly staff, open door policy

    Cons

    Efforts are under appreciated, salary is low, unprofessional senior management, incompetent managers, no interest in developing their employees

    Appreciate your employees more, train management on how to speak to their employees professionally, having management take ownership of errs.
