Public Accounting Experience

Auditor (Current Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at RubinBrown full-time for more than 3 years

ProsOpportunity to gain valuable experience in public accounting, worked with a variety of small business clients in different industries.

ConsBenefits are poor compared to similar-paying industry positions. The workload increased due to understaffing, increased turnover, the Firm's inability to retain qualified staff and a simultaneous focus on meeting or cutting the budget on audit projects while maintaining the same amount of work required or at times adding additional work to the schedule. Not uncommon to catch up on a backlog of work on PTO days. Know what you're getting into.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe proactive, not reactive.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

ProsGreat experience, excellent culture, a good opportunity to interact with different people and multiple clients. Stable firm with good benefits.
