I worked at Lindquist von Husen & Joyce full-time (More than a year)
Not a bad firm if you’re are looking for a career in their niche. Working from home, flexible hours, and not a lot of travel can be good perks. It's pretty easy to get comfortable here.The majority of the staff is great to work with, and participate in firm events and work to create a fun environment.
Lindquist is not a bad place to start. But it’s small, as is the market it serves. Also, there are not enough clients to grow the firm. You might just have to wait until someone leaves or retires. Even if you keep your head down, kiss butt, and work hard, there would be little opportunity inside of the firm. If you want a career outside of non-profits and affordable housing, don’t come here. Most of the partners are easy to work with and experienced managers, a few of which are highly respected within the CPA community. A few are still learning to how to lead. I had one negative experience that demonstrates how important is it is to have a management team that supports you when dealing with a difficult situation. If you don’t get that support from the partner, then you don’t respect them, the firm, or their objective.
Advice to Management
Support your employees in difficult situations. Your staff isn't lying to you. And when you are presented an outrageous claim, work to maintain an environment that is not hostile to your employees. And when you realize your staff is correct, act as a leader and take steps to address the situation. Also, strive to treat all your employees in the same way, it’s too obvious how a few managers & partners have favorites. And if you say you will give a reference. Give the reference. Don't ignore calls and emails. Ignoring it is backstabbing, shady, and downright unethical behavior you would not expect out of management in at a CPA firm.
