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


    - It's a big firm but it still has a small business feel. I've never felt like just a number.

    - Smart, driven and team-oriented coworkers. People throughout the firm, at all levels, are always willing to help out.

    - Great engagements with fun client.

    - TONS of growth opportunities. RSM is growing quickly and there are plenty of opportunities for people with personal drive.

    - Unlimited PTO for Managers and above!

    - Flexible work options. We're almost all setup to work from anywhere and most managers are open to remote work when appropriate.

    - Our offices are generally really nice with great amenities and good office culture. There are always a lot of gatherings and opportunities to have fun.


    - We sometimes need to work late nights. Certain parts of the business (Tax) need to work long hours during busy season but other divisions (Audit and Consulting) don't have to work many late nights. The flexible work hours make up for it.

    - The Firm's name recognition can be a challenge. Not enough people know who RSM is! We're the 5th largest consulting company.. we shouldn't have to introduce our firm at clients.
