    Pros

    Personal growth, management is very arrogant

    Cons

    Leadership, very stressful job, your input is not valued

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider treating all employees equally; management need to provide more guidance and training to first year staff

    I worked at UHY Advisors full-time for less than a year

    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.

    I have been working at UHY Advisors full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    Current Employee - I T Service in San Juan, PR

    I have been working at UHY Advisors as a contractor for 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.

    I worked at UHY Advisors

    Pros

    Good starting point for CPA candidates.
    Training was okay.
    One nice thing was Saturday catered meals during tax season and other treats.

    Cons

    employees are interchangeable pegs in a hole; it's all about the bottom line and profits that will be shared by the partners.

    I have been working at UHY Advisors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Exposure to various markets, great people, competitive pay, ease to move up corporate spectrum, opportunity for a good work/life balance. Busy season is typically 55 hr work week as compared to hours worked in big 4. You have the opportunity to shape your career.

    Cons

    It's public accounting so the hours are longer during Jan-April. Sometimes you can get stuck working in one industry for the entire busy season. Other than that I can't think of many complaints.

    I worked at UHY Advisors

    Pros

    Very friendly and relaxed environment with an "open door policy". Fast growing company with lots of potential. Always look out for everyones best interest. Fun place to work, lots of social events to build employee relationships outside the office.

    Cons

    Hard to find any off the top of my head. Does not have the number of employees that Big Four accounting firms have which makes them look less desirable even though they are just as professional and competitive.
