    I have been working at Whitley Penn full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Company culture, relatively flexible work schedule as long as you complete your tasks. If you're going to stay in public accounting, this is a great firm to do it at.

    Cons

    There's no maternity leave and some of the managers are difficult to work with in certain industry segments.

    Advice to Management

    Implement policies that place value on the employee over the bottom line. Policies and benefits aimed purely at retention and being competitive for hiring/recruiting are thinly veiled bribes that still do not show appreciation for the busy season hours & demanding clients.

    Interview

    I reached out via email to the recruiter and a couple weeks later heard back from her to set up an interview. I interviewed 3 people over Skype.

    They didn't really ask too many questions. They wanted to know how interested I was in them and allowed me to ask most of the questions.

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate. The pay was about the same and even better than most other accounting firms including Big 4.
