    Pros

    Toughest busy season since I've been at the Firm. We worked our butt off !!! However, the clients were interesting, the managers I worked for were supportive and I felt a real team spirit with my coworkers. Also, there are many new employee friendly iniatives being implemented that are a good sign that the Company is starting to focus more on the employees and their happiness.

    Cons

    Lots of hours, some tough engagements (with clients not being fully prepared), juggling schedules

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the staff and their well being. Without us....you can't service clients. We like the new initiatives including: thank yous letters to family, extra $50 per night for travel and the new senior bonus plan etc. Keep them coming !!!!

    Very good entry level salary right out of college
    Very helpful with CPA exam prep and bonuses for passing

    Pay was a little low compared to other accounting firms for interns at $15/hour,

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Hours are not bad, except for the busy season, january thru may must come in on saturdays. PTO is good, typical for the industry tho. Easy to get promoted if you befriend right people.
    OK as a transitional place or if you can't find a better job. Would not recommend otherwise.

    Cons

    Everything else. Pervy leadership guys. Very few sharp people. Pay and benefits are not competitive. No perks. Ugly office. Disastrous clients as mostly public penny stocks. No name recognition. Deteriorating culture.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people, they leave for a reason.
