    Pros

    Nothing from the Partners. They have five partners, each one is bad in their own way. They do not know how to manage. If you come to work here, make sure you have another plan. DO NOT DO IT. The best benefit you would have is the ability to find another job.

    Cons

    The managing partner does not care about the employees. There is no work life balance. The only people that stay here are people with the H1B Visa group. they hire them, take advantage of them, knowing that if this group does not do what they say, they will be shipped back to their country. Horrible. Turnover is extremely high. The original other two partners cannot keep assistants. No one really stays unless they cannot find a job.

    Advice to Management

    You need prayer.

    Pros

    Not really crazy during busy season. People are very nice. Still able to maintain a work-life balance at this public accounting firm.

    Cons

    Poorly compensated. Highest turnover ratios I have seen in my career. The key reason being lack of attention towards employees growth within the firm. Hold off seniors for far too long. No great exit opp as you would have at other regional firms.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to take actions. Do something to make it actually the culture you promote.

    Pros

    The company has a very strong staff diversity!!

    Cons

    Disorganized, no commitment to their own mission and values, senior management does not invest in their employees, and extremely high staff turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on why there is a high turnover of staff. Learn how to manage employees more effectively.

    Pros

    The company is a good company. It provides a lot of training and different ways to grow as an auditor. In addition, it challenges you but putting you into an in-charge role quickly. CPA firms in general are a good place to grow, mature as an auditor and gain lots of experience.

    Cons

    The Job security at SB& Company is not certain.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to find ways to hire good employees and retain them. The turnover is too high!

    Pros

    Hire great people
    Nice size and type of clients for small firm

    Cons

    -treat staff like children instead of adults
    -They have no concept of work life balance, Management/Seniors/Partners calls you at odd times of the day and mornings..just rude
    -No real time feedback on performance
    -Training is a joke. Staff walk in and out of the training or work on their laptops during the session.
    -Audit Methodology ???? they don't even follow their own methodolgy.
    -Technology - totally lacking. firm is just cheap. Dells computers are old as dinasours.
    Oh one more - VERY HIGH TURNOVER-OVER 30 PEOPLE IN ONE YEAR, KEEP IN MIND FIRM IS ONLY 30 PEOPLE.

    Advice to Management

    Really truly listen to your employees especially contact the ones that have left and really find out why they left. No one is really happy.

    Pros

    It is a good place to train to be a super auditor, but other than that, there no good reason.

    Cons

    They actually ask employees to sign contracts in order to receive pay raises. Who does that?!

    Advice to Management

    Please stop this type of horrible acts.

  9. Nice environment, beautiful city and people!

    Pros

    Pros - People are really friendly.

    Cons

    No work life balance. They give you a bonus but said you need to pay them back if you leave the firm before certain period. Who does that? Low salary and no benefit. High turn over rate. They said they want to make a firm to be a good place to work, but they never take any action.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere - small shop, you know everyone, holiday party at managing partner's house

    Cons

    Multiple busy seasons in fall & winter means no down time. Feeling the firm overextended itself to get work, then scrambled to get it all done. Gave me concerns about audit quality.
