    Nice, Maybe Too Nice

    Auditor Financial Services (Former Employee)
    Roseland, NJ

    ProsThis firm basically lets you take off anytime you want nine months out of the year with a morning's notice. You can leave early any day during busy season so long as you think of some reasonable excuse. The only real expectation is that you get your work done at some point. After the economic downturn, the firm was able to hire more intelligent staff than they had in the past. So, it should be a better place to work now.

    ConsFor some reason, this firm hired quite a few people who did not belong in the accounting profession. As you may notice, a lot of people on this board can barely write. This was typical at the staff level and remained at the senior and management levels. The "backstabbing" people were the ones trying to tell management to get rid of some of these idiots. Everyone received close to the same raise even though there was a clear difference in performance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire some of these morons and give the good workers higher pay.

    Great, diverse culture in an auditing firm

    Summer (Former Employee)
    Beverly Hills, CA

    ProsThe diverse, team-oriented culture that brings all of us together. Although the job itself can be tough, but the people make the office a great place to be in. Plenty of opportunities organized to bond. Great access & exposure to senior management.

    ConsPolitical climate in the office may be annoying to some, and the nature of the work itself isn't the most exciting so don't expect too much. Can be a little repetitive, but you can get really good at it. In the end you're the one who is in control so it depends a lot on you on where you want to be ahead in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOrganize more events to know entry-level employees more, improve the technological facilities there. Enhance internship program by making it more challenging, and provide greater opportunities for career advancement.

    good place to start career before the merge

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosgreat benefit, great learning experience

    Conslots of uncertainty inside the firm. Bad evaluation process. performance was based on how well your personal relationship with manager. Not based on work efficiency. Mentor program is just fake and not being used well.

    Advice to Senior Managementtalk to different employee, listen to everyone, offer your help. not just listen to those you considered as your friends in your personal life.

    It was good while it lasted.

    Senior Associate (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsIt had great benefits and a great workplace environment. It also had a good work/life balance. And it paid overtime.

    ConsBeing bought out by KPMG. Bye bye mid-size perks. Also, inter-office work teams and interactions were not nearly as efficient as working with team members located in one's local office.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWish you wouldn't have sold the firm. We were doing so well.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
