    I have been working at Sax Macy Fromm & Co full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Full training in all aspects of accounting and tax. I felt super prepared. Friends in other places didn't receive the same. Most vacation time out of all the firms I interviewed with. Coworkers get together outside of work too which is nice. I would remain friends with people even if I left.

    Cons

    OT in the summer and fall sometimes. I would also like more feedback on how I'm doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep making improvements and implementing new ideas. maybe have anonymous forum where staff can submit ideas.

    Pros

    The staff (not management) is great! You build long lasting friendships with them. Training program is like no other and they do care about the development of the staff. They have a soda machine that is free which I guess is good. The office itself is very nice even though most of the staff sits in cubicles.

    Cons

    Office politics are the worst and they start with the Human Resources dept and Partner. In order to rank high in the ratings, they would ask their employees to write good reviews on Glassdoor and on surveys given out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice? Why bother, they won't listen.

    I worked at Sax Macy Fromm & Co

    Pros

    Other than tax season, hours are very reasonable. Not much else

    Cons

    Ever since the economy went south, upper management started to treat the employees like garbage. They have laid people off like its a bodily function. At its peak Sax Macy had approximately 130 employees, Sax Macy is currently at maybe 100 employees. Office politics is unbearable. Constructive criticism is given too late and management is all too eager to throw people under the bus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Partners need to start treating its employees with respect.
