    Current Employee - Tax Consultant in New York, NY

    I have been working at True Partners Consulting full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexibility, Growing opportunity, open minded, paid overtime, and a great firm culture.
    I joined True Partners Consulting several months ago and just went through my first busy season.
    As a tax consultant, I was able to gain hands on experience with many different types of tax compliance works and other tax related projects.
    All the seniors/managers/directors/MDs were always opened to questions and tried their best to help.
    The salary is very reasonable and though there is no annual bonus, they do pay for overtimes.
    I found it more reasonable since you can "earn" your own bonus. More you work, more you earn.
    The firm offers many training opportunities and actually appreciates when you take that extra step.
    I read the negative reviews below and just wanted to share my own experience so that our company's potential future candidates can see both sides and decide wisely.

    Cons

    I worked here less than a year but so far there is no cons.

    Pros

    There are no pros for this Company.

    Cons

    The MDs just want to use you for all your worth, and compensate you as badly as possible. No annual bonus? WTF!!Do not work for this Company, they do not pay up to industry standards. I left this Company, and found a much better job for much more money. I Partner on my main client would travel with me occassionally on business trips and not even bring a laptop to even "fake" doing work. He had no clue about the client, and took all the credit. Terrible person!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate employees fairly. Stop being so greedy!

    I worked at True Partners Consulting as an intern

    Pros

    Great technical training. They really made sure we understood what is going on behind tax practices. Might be because there are like no CPAs in this office.
    Small office, which means you get a lot of attention from your supervisor and manager. I think this is essential to entry-level professionals.

    Cons

    Communication between different levels of staff was bad.
    Sometimes sent out mixed messages to interns I really have no idea what they really wanted us to do.
    My experience was really bumpy, and I felt overwhelmed because personally I really tried my best but I felt like no matter what I did nothing was good enough.

    Pros

    True Partners is unlike your typical accounting firm. True Partners values employee growth, work-life balance, and employee happiness above all. The culture created at True Partners is what attracts employees and what keeps employees.

    Cons

    There are few, if any, downsides to working at True Partners. Like any tax firm you will be busy during certain times of the year but the company helps keep employees happy during those times.

    Pros

    Nice enviroment. Friendly people. The work-life balance IS really good. Supervisors and management are interested in helping those below learn and adjust.

    Cons

    Agreed that there can be somewhat of an "unprofessional" environment that is not present in the large firms, but they're owned by private equity and my concern is what would happen if the value reaches its peak and they want to dump it. It's just another investment to them; nothing more.

    Pros

    TPC offers a great culture and excellent work life balance. You are instantly part of the family!

    Cons

    The company does not generally hire outside of a select few schools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up recruiting to more schools to spread the company name.

    Brilliant culture

    I worked at True Partners Consulting

    Pros

    Great people, ludicrously welcoming culture, breaks the mold of a tax consulting firm. It's almost hard to leave TPC, once you do you are itching to return down the line.

    Cons

    The various locations are very silo-ed off which is excellent for their autonomy, but the opportunity to collaborate across regions would be nice.
