    Pros

    Personable partners and senior managers that are willing to help you. Great advancement opportunities. Opportunities to gain experience working with clients from many different industries.

    Cons

    Pay could be better but is still competitive. Expensive benefits. 401k match could be better.

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

    Pros

    Great compensation and time and a half for busy season hours

    Cons

    No management structure. They make you "actively search for work". Nothing is assigned and if your in the audit department you do tax work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like humans and not worry about their billable hours. Help them find work and be more transparent about what kind of work you will be doing.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    I do not think there is any pros

    Cons

    Full of discrimination. Managers are very arrogant. They think they are better than big 4 but there is no comparison. It's like a family either you are part of the family and have same interests or you are not. If you are not, you will really find yourself alone and they make you really suffer. No training and guidance. Do not ever think to have this job as a step to move to corporate job as people do in big 4. Big 4 are known but no one know UHY. Honestly, avoid and take any other job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please respect everyone

    Consider making sweeping changes in leadership.

    Decent working experience

    I worked at UHY Advisors

    Pros

    Better than working for the big four, close teams, good benefits. Conveniently located next to plenty of good lunch restaurants.

    Cons

    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.
