    I have been working at Friedman LLP full-time (More than 3 years)


    Hi have been working for the firm for 3 years and it has been a great experience. Friedman's culture is really what sets the firm apart from others in the industry. For example, in the last year they have had a great off-site holiday party (which was during work hours - greatly appreciated), pizza days, gourmet ice cream sandwich truck day (I mean, who knew that even existed), massages, a great end of busy season party at the Pier (and the next day off), etc. I have also grown and moved up since joining the firm.


    This industry in general is intense during busy season. Public accounting isn't for everyone, but if you want to work hard and be recognized I recommend Friedman.

    Advice to Management

    I really like your "suggestion box" program - so please keep that going. I've never worked for a company before that not only solicits feedback, but then emails a response / update on every single suggestion. The culture here is so important so keep communicating with us - you're doing a great job! A silly thing is - keep the snacks during busy season. They are appreciated!!
