    A motley collection of small, average CPA firms trying to become a bigger one

    Pass On Answering (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsFree parking at suburban offices. Some employees are nice, pleasant to work with.

    ConsThese are all *opinions* of someone who has worked at other firms and knows what the "good" ones are doing -

    Very poor management function - misguided at best and not in touch with employees at worst. IMHO, head partner not personable, does not seem to care about improving things overall in this firm. IMHO, Appears to take counsel from a few "kiss-ups" rather than addressing criticism honestly. Poorly executed merger of several small firms during 2008. Benefits especially are very basic and overall pay seems below market. No female partners. Lots of pressure for more and more hours from staff. Support staff very much below average in demeanor and in any sort of assistance to staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSmiling : ) Wake up and smell the coffee.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    One of the biggest misstakes in my life!!!!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsA wonderful & fair employer before merging with other firms

    ConsThe "beautiful people" were treated very differently than those who were not considered "special or kiss-ups, whatever you would like to call it. Very poor communication between staff & management, not specific job description, never knew who was going to tell you what to do or whose job you were going to do from a day to day basis

    Advice to Senior ManagementMerging with the "wonderful" Malin, Bergquist was a bad move. Have heard nothing but negative comments from staff & clients

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great learning environment

    Audit Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsMuch like any professional services environment ...MB is what you make it. I was very dissapointed to see a negative review for this employer. I received superior training, advance appotunities for advancement and respectable pay and bonus....This is a performance based environment. perform and work and you well be paid....Don't want to and you will be writing negative posts after being fired from a series of other accounting firms. I would suggest any proffesional work for a quality regaional firm like this before a national firm or mega regional...you will learn more and ultimately you are paid for your knowledge and experiences.

    ConsSome employees should have moved on ....but that's like every where.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue with the significant IT and training investment. Focus on your core strengths and clientele...not the SEC work

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
