    I have been working at WeiserMazars (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Teams are an important part of the firms culture. Learning on the job at difference clients is a plus. Leaders are involved in projects which helps the overall delivery.

    Cons

    Busy season requires many hours of overtime. And the scheduling and related deadlines make life outside of work difficult during tax and audit busy season.

    Advice to Management

    Continued growth at the firm will create more opportunities and learning more about the expectations of staff will improve the culture.

    I worked at WeiserMazars full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent work life balance within the audit practice, but that's heavily dependent upon which group you're in. Partners in Real Estate are friendly and approachable.

    Cons

    In fighting between groups. A lot of "us" vs. "them", especially between the foreign (Mazars) and domestic groups (legacy Weiser).

    Advice to Management

    Bridge the gap between the various groups (audit, tax, Mazars) in terms of the "us" vs. "them" mentality. The busy seasons tend to differ between the various groups, which harbors a bit of resentment (audit season is over in the summer, when tax season is ramping up). Mazars busy season is typically Dec-Feb, which leads to domestic audit team harboring resentment.

    I have been working at WeiserMazars full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some really nice, smart, talented co-workers and provided a reasonable work-life balance.

    Cons

    There was a strong element of a 'good old boys' network that made it difficult to maneuver. Very political culture where people were afraid to take chances and make unpopular or unconventional choices. The Executive level is insincere and make all decisions based on how they will individually benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Start acting more like a large, multinational firm, not a local 'see-what-I-can-grab' firm. Weizer always had a decent reputation in the NY market and being joined with Mazars should really help - don't blow it with greed and short sightedness.

    Pros

    WeiserMazars is a company that is motivated on changing the landscape of business through tax, accounting and advisory services to different industries. Their greatest pro is the people they have working for them. They are some of the most experienced and influential people in their respect industries.

    Cons

    One of the biggest cons of working for WeiserMazars is their could be more exposure to business development for younger employees. Most of the business development is driven by the partners and managers.

    Advice to Management

    Establishing a more defined employee development program would be beneficial for the professional and personal growth of new employees.

    I worked at WeiserMazars full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good introductory experience to accounting, auditing and transaction services. Interesting, international environment. Work with diverse, international companies across the USA.

    Cons

    Despite efforts made to formalize training at the junior levels, the amount of knowledge, skills and experience gained varies a great deal based on which coworkers junior employees are staffed with. There is a disconnect between the 'French' and 'non-French' sides of WeiserMazars which at times can seem unhealthy.

    Advice to Management

    Break down distinction between different groups, don't staff based on nationality.
