    Pros

    Super nice people to work with. Great clients and learning environment. Fun industry.

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance. Impossible to take PTO, no one has time to cover for you. Poor transparency by management-made false promises. The firm is not very profitable. The firm doesn't manage scope creep very well creating extra work without compensation. Turnover is extremely high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    N/A most of them know what needs to be fixed but can't or won't.

    I worked at R.V. Kuhns full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Young culture and everyone is nice. Give lots of vacation and people are willing to help each other.

    Cons

    Low company morale - almost everyone is dissatisfied
    No transparency - decisions are made with little explanation
    High turnover - senior management makes excuses for it, but none are valid
    Colors in reports the focus of rebranding

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the right things and bring in a CEO with real business experience. Hire a manager for Performance measurement and invest in your employees. They are very bright and honest people.

    I have been working at R.V. Kuhns full-time

    Pros

    Great people, very friendly (can also be a negative - don't want to hurt anyone's feelings!), great work life balance since hours are short for Finance. Promotions are typically from within, so there are opportunities if you work hard, are smart, wait for it/make friends with the right people.

    Cons

    A lot of what others have indicated is true - poor leadership, not a meritocracy and very opaque.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a CEO to run the business side. At the very least, hire a business consultant. Senior management has made numerous mistakes trying to run the company - stick with what you're good at, consulting on client investments. Improve the transparency, both from senior management and across departments.

    I worked at R.V. Kuhns full-time

    Pros

    Young company with dedicated professionals in middle ranks who want to improve company. Opportunities are best for those right out of college as they like to promote from within and especially those who started at entry level. Friendly coworkers who are genuinely concerned with doing the very best job they can for their clients.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity. Low pay for industry. No standard performance evaluation system that seems to have led to people being in positions based on time served or relationships with senior management rather than merit. Very little skill development/training of employees. Lack of reporting structure leads to in-balance in work load that negatively effects morale as some have no work-life-balance while others do. Dissenting ideas/voices often treated with hostility by the loudest voice in the room. Management decisions and company focus lack transparency and seem random to most employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The skill sets to run the business are in the middle of the company. Get business focused CEO and operations team. Fire poor performers. One person doesn't have all the answers no matter how much they dominate the conversation. Respect and values you apply to your clients should be shown to your employees.

    Pros

    A lot of good people in the middle and lower ranks. Work is sometimes interesting. Agree with another review that the work can be as hard or easy as you want it to be.

    Cons

    Management is very uneven. Some people work hard and others skate by. The "team" environment means no accountability for individuals. No transparency into why people are paid what they are, and you are discouraged from asking. Morale sucks. It is amazing to me how many people are terrible at their jobs and still have them. The firm management holds lots of meetings with the whole staff and don't say anything except bumper sticker slogans.

    Only in a firm whose managers are this out of touch would you have MBAs reporting to someone who didn't go to college.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency and process. Listen to your employees. Empower managers to make decisions. Hire a CEO.
