    I have been working at Lindquist von Husen & Joyce full-time (More than a year)

    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 Management

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

    - Schedule flexibility - Stocked breakroom - Down-to-earth partners - Partner group genuinely wants to change - Short walk to BART -

    - Still a bit old school when it comes to making changes to company culture changes but they are working on it - Decor is slightly outdated

    Advice to Management

    - Diversify your lines of business to allow for further expansion

    I have been working at Lindquist von Husen & Joyce full-time (More than a year)

    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 - The office is a little outdated.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

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