    Pros

    Some good people to work with.

    Cons

    No vision, strategy, or leadership. No investment in people, process, or technology. Very poor benefits and old-fashioned culture. All employees exist only to enrich the partners. No organizational structure. No opportunity for advancement because the partners do not retire. The benefits are lousy and the culture is absurd. 15 days PTO and 6.5 holidays. Apparently Christmas Eve is only half a holiday. Insurance is very expensive and the 401k "match" is extremely discretionary - just like the year-end bonus that isn't tied to performance. You will never her more intolerant, racist, and backwards thinking in a white-collar environment in 2015.

    Advice to Management

    Retire!

    low pay, long hours for admin, and not a lot of work to do in-between tax season.

    Advice to Management

    I mean, i know it is an accounting firm, but if it got any livelier in there a funeral would break out, there were days i would come it say hello to the office manager, and then goodnight to her and that was it...

    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 Management

    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.
