    I worked at Renner & Company part-time

    Pros

    Company has a reputation for professional integrity and community involvement. Office staff and physical plant are very pleasant.

    Cons

    Despite claiming to be satisfied with my credentials the offer was 50% of what I was earning in a similar position. The offer clearly was not made with any serious intent.

    I worked at Renner & Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible work-life balance (5 word minimum for pros)

    Cons

    No culture, small budgets, unresponsive upper management, poor pay/benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to be more responsive to its employees. No direct deposit, lack of openness to partners, no benefits, no financial assistance for the CPA exam and below industry pay are all poor human resource practices. The whole organization needs to reevaluate its priorities, of which, the morale of its employees should be among those at the top. I would suggest that management start with acknowledging the existence of its employees - I can count on one hand the number of times the president said hello to me in a 20 person office. All of the problems addressed above have a demoralizing effect on staff and may explain the exodus of several managers and staff in the last two years.

    Poor pay and benefits

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management

    I have been working at Renner & Company

    Pros

    This is a small firm that is trying to grow. Serves a niche market of charities, trade associations, and government contractors in the area (appears to be safe!). You learn various aspects - doing audits, reviews, compilations, providing accounting assistance.

    Cons

    Almost no benefits - poor health insurance, no 401(k), little to none n profit-sharing. During busy (tax) season, you don't get your paid overtime if you don't work more than 80 hours in overtime. You get the overtime pay at the end of the year, supposedly to help with "cash flow" issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more or they will all leave. Cannot grow if you are losing experienced employees.

  5.  

    Very small firm, but everything about it is bottom-tier.

    • Senior Management

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Alexandria, VA
    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Alexandria, VA

    I have been working at Renner & Company

    Pros

    You get a good learning experience (for a few years) working the various aspects of accounting: audit, tax, accounting services, etc.
    Flexibility with work hours - you can work part-time if you have a family with young children.

    Cons

    High turnover of people. Overworked, highly underpaid (compared to the industry), and almost no benefits. People tend to leave due to lack of incentives and benefits provided. Management also tends to hire people with little to no experience which brings down the profitability of the entire firm. Management wants something without offering nothing in return.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just as you have to sell your services to prospective clients, you have to sell your firm to current and prospective employees.
