    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.

    Pros

    Great hours
    Actually pays overtime
    Treats employees well (most of the time)

    Cons

    Low pay
    Work enviornment can be unprofessional
    Limited client opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    True Partners is a fun place to work, but the fun can lead to unprofessionalism. The best thing about working at TPC is the positive environment, but that can also hide real problems in management.

    Pros

    - Great training ground
    - The Partners have really good intentions
    - They'll feed you during busy season

    Cons

    - Lunches and parties don't negate the enormous amount of day-to-day negativity
    - No work-life balance
    - Very condescending Operations Manager and Senior Staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the San Jose office: If most of your employees are leaving after your train them, maybe you should investigate that further.
