Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Amazing senior management, always has a open door policy!

No work life balance, but that come with working at an accounting firm during busy season....
Career Opportunities are lacking because of slow business during off season.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – -Provides great benefit package with ample vacation time and days off
-Great learning experience and gateway to better opportunities at Hedge Funds or Private companies
-Firm events (LIFE Initiative, Holiday Party, Picnic)
Cons – -Completely unrealistic budgets
-Some people would be managing 10 jobs during seasom while others only had 3 and would leave at 9pm, while others would be there until past There is no confidentiality. You can take management a personal problem and you can guarantee the whole office knows the next day.
Advice to Senior Management – -Prove trustworthyness to workers
-Listen when your workers are speaking out (I think something is wrong when 90% of the senior class quit)
-Give FAIR evaluations with FAIR compensation. It isn't okay to give the entire company the exact same raise. It undermines the dedication some people do put in while the rest just breeze by.
I think this is a great company to start out at. You learn SO much - about hedgefunds, corporate life, and business, in general. This is a great environment to learn and strengthen your skills. After 4 years or so - get out. It's the best choice I made.
Pros – Additional PTO from working busy season hours
Diverse crowd of people to work with
Firm events (Picnic, Holiday party)
Extensive exposure into the hedge fund industry
Ability for seniors to manage clients and coach new staff
Cons – Unrealistic budgets and expectations
Lack of training opportunity for new staff (start in mid-November but only have little time to prepare for busy season which can overwhelm them)
Very long hours during busy season and even for jobs out of season
Management having the quick trigger of letting people go
Advice to Senior Management – Listen to the employees of what they need to help them to achieve success in the firm. Most often when giving performance reviews it can hurt the staff's confidence and management really needs to help out the staff from a humanistic standpoint.
Pros – Decent benefits and PTO
Many great co-workers
A diverse group of employees
Opportunity to learn, depending upon whom you work for
Cons – Increased pressure to "network" since business downturn
Quality of client experiences vary
Increased pressure to keep time "down" on complex jobs because clients want lower fees
Quality of training varies from poor to excellent, with little oversight
Advice to Senior Management – Don't "buy" business from clients and then expect jobs to come within an unrealistic budget
Don't make promises to clients without considering your staff's workload
Pros – Mid-sized...well diversified, fair compensation, many talented people
Cons – long hours busy season 75-80 hours, politics
Advice to Senior Management – Please do not fake people... do not fight, managers!
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
