I have been working at Huber Erickson & Bowman full-time (More than 3 years)
Good mixture of clients in different industries. Nice mix of work between, accounting, audit, tax, consulting. Experienced staff and partners.
Large niche practice in the construction industry with revenues that ebb and flow with the construction economy. Three of four partners are at or very near to retirement with no supervisory/manager level staff to take their place. The firm doesn't do a good enough job of training its staff. Lack of incentive program to make work life attractive for long term employment, and low morale among staff members.
Advice to Management
Listen to the concerns of your staff members. Need to reconsider hourly billing rates and move to a value pricing/billing system. Management needs to do a better job of motivating staff to meet client needs and expectations including timeliness and quality.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Huber Erickson & Bowman (Salt Lake City, UT) in December 2008.
Responded to a request from a friend who worked in the firm to interview for a manager position. I interviewed with the managing partner, then returned for a second interview with the partner incharge of human resources. Was offered the job in the second interview.
There was no negotiation. They offered one dollar amount and I accepted.
