    Pros

    The 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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    - 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    - The office is a little outdated.

    Pros

    Flexible 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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Continue 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

    I worked at Lindquist von Husen & Joyce full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Hours are ok. Location is good.

    Cons

    A 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 Office is outdated with very old furniture.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 ManagementAdvice

    Less complaining and work with staff to help improve the process.
