    I worked at Mauldin & Jenkins part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Worked with staff accountants who were willing to help. Learned a lot about public accounting and auditing. Compensation was fair. It was a challenging experience.

    Cons

    Partners are too demanding for an intern who has no knowledge of auditing and is taking multiple accounting classes while working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to set up a training system for the entry level employees in order to make learning the audit software faster. Either have a little more patience with interns who lack experience or do not hire interns.

    I have been working at Mauldin & Jenkins full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The firm has an open door policy with its partners, seniors and above get offices instead of cubes, health insurance is provided at no extra cost for single employees, and you get paid vacation and sick leave effective immediately when you start work.

    Cons

    Forced vacation the week of July 4th, understaffed on all jobs, recently turnover has been very high due to low salaries, poor raises, long hours, long weekends, increased travel, overall negative attitude by most upper management. The open door policy is nice to have in theory, but really if you are honest you suddenly stop getting to work on good jobs and your chargeable time gets reduced. Everything is about chargeable time, while you are constantly being "encouraged" to work more efficiently to charge less time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall culture shift is needed immediately. The firm is still operating as if it is the best thing out there, and partners feel that the economy is still bad so they don't have to focus on employee retention. Wake up and realize people are leaving for a reason...jobs are available with higher salaries and better work-life balance. Stop treating employees like garbage.

    I have been working at Mauldin & Jenkins full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Partners have an open door policy and they are very accessible. Firm has a great reputation in the industry. The firm has various niches which give staff the opportunity to practice different types of accounting/tax/auditing. The firm pays for CPA exam study material and days off to sit for exam.

    Cons

    CPE is set by the firm/industry until manager level. I would like to pick my own CPE courses/attend large industry conferences. Another con is that the economic downturn caused a decrease the number of clients and short-term opportunity. Employees were promoted quicker five years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I appreciate your hard work, sharing of knowledge, and opportunities for the future!

    I worked at Mauldin & Jenkins full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very friendly coworkers, pay for GSCPA and AICPA, offer ample opportunities to get CPE for the year

    Cons

    Long work days/nights/weekends. Constant travel and living in hotel rooms while being expected to work late nights/weekends with no bonus and a very small raise (sometimes less than inflation). The budgeted hours expected to reach for the year are laughable. Forced vacation time around certain holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    something is not working, learn to value your employees and listen to their concerns. just because this is the only job you have ever held does not mean it is the best thing out there.

    I worked at Mauldin & Jenkins as an intern

    Pros

    Compensation at the firm was great.

    Cons

    People are very judgemental and formal. Not the best for people who are not the minority race.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in more people who are not like you. If they meet the qualifications it should not matter how much their parents make, but what they can do for your firm.
