    Pros

    Flexible and casual atmosphere. Competitive compensation. Staff and seniors are willing to take the time to teach and explain things to interns. You get the opportunity to work across several service lines.

    Cons

    It gets busy -- but that's to be expected in tax.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    This company is the real deal. The management truly believes in treating employees and their clients with respect resulting in an extremely productive environment. Employees enjoy work/life balance as well as appropriate responsibilities. This truly is an exceptional company, with exceptional management, and excellent talent. Great place to work.

    Cons

    Traffic to/from downtown. However, it is definitely tolerable.

    Pros

    This is honestly a great place to work. The people are friendly, the pay is competitive, and the work/life balance is extremely fair compared to large accounting firms.

    Cons

    Training can be a bit slow, but once you are up to speed you will have plenty of rewarding work to keep your days going by quickly.

    Pros

    Best office culture ever! It's hard for an accounting firm to have such a great working environment (esp. during tax season), but this firm got this down.

    Cons

    small firm-limited budget on training.

    Pros

    Professionalism and the buddy system. Most of the people were friendly.

    Cons

    The office atmosphere is weird with some demanding Asian type.

    Advice to Management

    I know it is important for the employees especially interns to figure out the problems themselves. But this is a case by case situation, when an employee really have questions and couldn't solve by himself, please answer with patient without questioning or blaming.

    Pros

    True Partners offers compensation comparable to the Big4. Staff and senior get overtime which helps reward the high demands of busy season and temper management's over-utilization of staff since more OT would impact profit margin. You do get busy. It is taxes after all. However, they pay you fair and you enjoy the people you work with. The work is interesting and there is opportunity to work on different niches before settling into a specialty.

    Cons

    This is a tax firm, so the only draw back is you do work a lot of hours for stretches at a time. However, it is balanced out by other times of the year. In comparison to the Big4, the hours are still better at TPC.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on growing the company organically and recruit selectively to ensure continuation of the culture.

    Pros

    All the benefits of being at a Big 4 Accounting Firm, without all the Big 4 craziness! No mandatory overtime, great people, flexible working environment, flexible schedules, great client experience.

    Cons

    Smaller firm, but not really a Con...

    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.

    Mismanaged. Poor growth projections.

    Pros

    Advertises overtime pay, on site beer and wine, luxurious offices. Unfortunately I don't put much faith in management's ability to deliver on its promises.

    Cons

    Received a solid offer from the firm, only to have my offer (along with 10 others from my hiring class) rescinded. This is a reflection of managements inability to project growth and its staffing needs. I would be leery of joining a small firm that can't grapple with basic operational needs.

    Advice to Management

    It's extremely unprofessional and unethical to issue job offers without conducting the proper due diligence to understand your staffing needs. Rescinding and offer due to a diminished client base is an obvious turn off.
