      Pros

      Incredible team, great clients, opportunities to learn and advance

      Cons

      Challenge to juggle multiple small clients and maintain utilization

      Advice to Management

      You've already started pairing back the high needs, low budget, small clients. Keep up that change and keep doing what you're doing. Now as a former employee and new client, I can see the competitive advantage you have in the market and the difference in service that the 9Gauge model really provides.

      I have been working at 9Gauge Partners full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      9 Gauge uses the Top Grading hiring process and though it is very in depth it is a great approach. You are able to meet more than a handful of employees from all levels and its very helpful to go beyond the surface to determine whether or not you are a good fit. I am very happy to have accepted a position with them and definitely recommend working here because the people are great.

      Cons

      Not really a con, but the most extensive part of the process is the skills assessment portion... Although timely its really great to assess your skills and see where you are and need to go in your career.

      Advice to Management

      Keep hiring great people! ;-)

      Pros

      Great colleagues. The best team I've ever worked with! Never boring. Lots of opportunities to learn and get exposure to new things.

      Cons

      For some people the multi-talking and shifting priorities can be a challenge, but for the right person it's fun and exciting and provides so much growth potential.

      Keep it up!

      I worked at 9Gauge Partners for more than a year

      Pros

      Flexible schedules and not too much else

      Cons

      Poor onboarding, Company Culture, Variable Comp considerations, Nepotism

      Advice to Management

      The only reason the review is so high for 9gauge is because a Glassdoor review is part of the onboarding process when new hires are bright eyed and bushy tailed. Accounting associates are far too overworked because management is not too great at forecasting and adjusting schedules as the client needs change. You can potentially have 4-5 clients within the first month, which is a total mess because there is no kind of...

      Flexibility and Work-Life Balance, support from Senior Management, great co-workers and strong company culture.

      Cons

      The consulting lifestyle is not for everyone, and like any job, it can be challenging at times. However, the support of fellow co-workers and Senior Management makes all the difference!

      I have been working at 9Gauge Partners full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      9Gauge Partners provides the opportunity to gain work experience over a many industry types. Employees work as consultants, in teams or alone, so managing your time effectively is a must. This company is great for those who like to multi-task, are able to problem-solve with the client's best interest in mind, and are okay playing up or down the range of personal skill set based on client need. The work culture here...

      Cons

      If you are not comfortable working on a variety of clients most of the time, then this is not the environment for you. As accountants we like to control processes, and see projects through start to finish, but as consultants we are often just a piece of the puzzle and this can be difficult for those who have come from an industry-specific background, or from one large company to know working on multiple companies of...

      Advice to Management

      Management is actively striving for improvement, even though the company is quite good as it is. The efforts are seen through various culture initiatives, survey/feedback, open-door policy at all levels, and the general tone of respect throughout the company.
