    I worked at UHY Advisors

    Pros

    The firm pays overtime bonuses which is unusual for the industry.

    Cons

    Very stiff environment. Big disconnect between management and staff. Difficult to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk with employees about their career paths. As an experience staff or senior staff, begin to look at developing that individual to grow into leadership roles.

    Former Employee - Staff Accountant in Sterling Heights, MI

    I worked at UHY Advisors full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Recently renovated offices. Clean working environment. Generally, good clients to work on. Decent coworkers. There are a few good managers to work under.

    Cons

    Required to report to too many people. Management has no clue how much work their staff has. Difficult to find time to use vacation days. The office is very "gossipy," it reminds me of the games played in high school. Everyone is out for themselves and there is a lack of positive mentoring. Everyone secretly hates it there but puts on a good show in the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work in small groups. It will make everyone's life easier.

    Hours can be long relative to the pay and the work may not be as sexy as working for a larger corporation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Office culture is great just continue investing in people.

    Pros

    Talent is appreciated and recognized. Not alot of micromanagement. The firm appreciates people who take initiative - they make it easy to do so and encourage it. PTO is very healthy.

    Cons

    Less "support" than you would see with a larger firm (training, policies, etc.) Benefit to some, drawback for others. Benefits are competitive, but not impressive. Difficult environment for those looking for a checklist or formal career path.

    Pros

    you will learn something in short period of time. compensation is competitive in comparison with other firms. Conveniently located in midtown.

    Cons

    NO support or guidance, no training, policies at all. People divided by groups. Very difficult to adjust for new people because work environment is very disgusting. Seniors do not have much experience, they do not want to be bothered with questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should allow staff to review seniors which will help to improve their performance.

    Current Employee - I T Service in San Juan, PR

    I have been working at UHY Advisors as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    This privately owned professional accounting and auditing firm is a company with friendly management and owners. They provide competitive salaries and a wide variety of opportunities within the accounting and auditing field. They are committed to keeping up with the latest accounting methods and laws and have frequent seminars to help in this.One of the few accounting firms that can handles both U.S. and P.R. tax returns.

    Cons

    The hours can be demanding especially around tax time. While the tax preparers work almost entirely in the office, auditors frequently have to drive fairly long distances as much of the auditing work is in the client premises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strive to work more closely with I.T.
