    Pros

    They paid for dinner if you stayed late and car service if you were in the office late as well.

    Cons

    Deceitful in their employment practices. I was hired full-time permanently only to find out that the company was being bought out by KPMG and that the last few people hired would be the first to be laid-off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire people permanently when you know that the company's future is unstable.

    I have been working at Rothstein Kass as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    great benefit, great learning experience

    Cons

    lots 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Being 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 ManagementAdvice

    Wish you wouldn't have sold the firm. We were doing so well.

    Good pay and benefits; good professional support/ongoing credits; variety of clients

    office culture - if you fit in with a clique, great, if not, tough luck! Seniors could care less about staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let staff get stuck with just one senior in the beginning - make sure they work equally with everyone
