I have been working at Miller Cooper &Co (More than a year)
Relaxed environment where everyone is friendly and willing to stop what they're doing and help.
Staff are encouraged to take on what they think they can handle, mentors are provided to keep an eye on scheduling, make sure nobody is sitting around bored/doing nothing, and most importantly help if the workload is too much.
Smaller firm = exposure to a much wider range of work. You will not be pigeonholed into one specific thing and forced to do the same work repeatedly. However, you can direct yourself into work you prefer after awhile.
Immediate access/approachability of partners and senior managers.
Great benefits, competitive pay, great work life balance, respect for home/family obligations, flexible working arrangements (work from home anytime it is necessary).
Management/partner demographic is shifting towards the younger end which has led to many positive changes in firm policy and procedure.
The nature of the business (tax accounting) is going to require some long days due to deadlines, etc.
Smaller midsize firm so not as many corporate events/perks as you would get with Big 4 for example.
Office cliques can be annoying at times but nothing you wouldn't find anywhere else.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing. The changes so far have been great and the future looks bright. Incorporate more firm sponsored outings and treat your employees. Word of mouth is powerful recruiting.
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Miller Cooper &Co (Urbana, IL) in September 2016.
I applied through my university and got an on campus interview a week later.Behavioral and conversation based. Interview went relatively smoothly, however got an email 2 hours later saying I wouldn't receive a second round interview.
