    It's been a pleasure!

    Administrative (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe firm has a great group of people, from the staff up to the partner level. Everyone works incredibly hard around here. The partners listen to the staff and really do want to make changes to benefit both the staff themselves and the firm as a whole. The firm organizes many fun events and activities to keep us motivated and its great to see the partners let loose with all of us. Other pluses:
    - Location - in the Financial District so it is easy to get to BART and great restaurants
    - Benefits
    - Salary
    - Flexible schedules and working remotely
    - Retirement and profit sharing plans

    ConsThe busy season can be really tough for staff. Everyone gets pretty worn out for a couple of months but the firm is working on this.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to work on improving the workload during busy season. Otherwise, keep up the good work!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Glad I am hear!!!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    Pros- The place is like a family in many ways.
    - Kitchen is always stocked with food and beverages.
    - Business casual
    - Staff pretty much get to make their own schedules. Telecommuting is allowed.
    - Partners really do have an open door policy.
    - Staff are exposed to engagements on many different levels.
    - They promote from within.

    Cons- The hours can be a lot for about six weeks during busy season but they are offset by more freedom during the off season.
    - The office is a little outdated.

    Good place to work

    (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsFlexible schedule, nice people, great HR Manager who is making change happen, partners care about the staff, no micromanagement, open door policy, location, snacks and drinks freshly stocked everyday, telecommuting, benefits are good, profit sharing is generous

    ConsThe hours can be a lot during busy seasons, some of the partners are resistant to change so change can be slower than needed, partners are not always on the same page

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to make more positive changes, all of the partners should be more open to new ideas and not fearful just because it is different than now they have been doing things for years

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Boring place with Management that don't help employees improve

    Tax Staff Accountant (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsHours are ok. Location is good.

    ConsA Tax Manager that is too shy and doesn't like helping people. A partner that is always behind yet is in the office all the time. No titles below Manager (everyone is Tax Staff). Office is outdated with very old furniture. Heavy turnover.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess complaining and work with staff to help improve the process.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
