    Pros

    Weaver has a great environment, with very good work life balance, especially when compared to other public accounting firms. There is good opportunity for upward movement within the firm, especially for those that excel. Benefits are ok, with a great vacation policy. Overall, this is a great firm to work for.

    Cons

    Poor employer match on 401k.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is good. Clients are not really high profile, but somewhat interesting and complex.

    Cons

    Partners and managers lie to new recruits in order to get them in the door, within 3 weeks of starting I realized that I was lied to by the people that recruited me. Large separation between partners and staff associates. Partners live the good life, whilst the associates are treated poorly and misled just to stay on for one more season. Weaver recently added two new levels to their career ladders "Associate II" and "Senior Associate III. Many employees of the firm strongly believe that this is only in place to hinder staff from making it to the higher levels of the organization, whilst also making lower pay somewhat more standard at these expanded levels. HR is a nightmare. They are so unorganized on all fronts, recruiting, the HR Generalists. and the HR Managers. Extremely hard to work with on every front.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the internal processes, and treat people with the respect that they deserve. Implement more of a standard office procedure for most things that go on in the office to insulate against rogue partners and managers.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to work with clients in many different industries Provide a multitude of in-house continuing professional education courses

    Cons

    Salaries were below market Even though less than other public accounting firms, overtime is required during busy season

    Advice to Management

    Keep your staff happy and motivated in order to improve your bottom line instead of fighting over every single penny.

    Pros

    There is a variety of clients, practice areas and a chance to really grow in your profession. People are easy to work with and get along with professionally.

    Possible changes effecting the overall culture of the firm as a whole. Maybe it's part of the growing process as companies grow change is inevitable.
