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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and open PTO policy are AMAZING. This alone has improved my quality of life. Internal initiatives to grow people's skill sets. Working with skilled people in a an environment you aren't afraid to ask questions or for help. Flat power structure; it's as easy to speak with a partner as a co-worker.

    Cons

    Some growing pains lead to mis-communications. Issues forecasting workloads can cause a bit of uncertainty in workloads. These things are being worked-on actively. They management has the right idea. Over the next year or so I expect it to get much better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep heading where you are heading. Developing the internal systems and information base to allow for larger organization operations.

    Pros

    Great learning experience. You have the opportunity to see how different types of industries work, how companies are run, and you have access to all kinds of business/accounting software & ideas. Very supportive, intelligent, and hard working management and co-workers. Most of the time you get to be the "good guy" by helping your clients achieve their goals. (Unlike auditing where you tend to be the "bad guy"). ...

    Cons

    Depending on the type of person you are, you may not like to always be kept on your toes. ;) Work can come in waves, so one day you have little to do, and other days you're slammed. You must stay organized and ahead of the curve! Company is growing quickly, so there are sometimes a few growing pains and disconnect in communication, but it's still better than working for a corporate giant!

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the awesome culture and foundation you have created and all will continue to be great!

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

    Pros

    I recently came from a very "big corporate" environment where the job security was high but the company dynamic/morale was very low. I was anxious to make the jump to 9Gauge because it was a big change and it turned out to be the best decision I've made in my career. The people at 9Gauge are talented, helpful, positive, focused, and driven to help our clients get to the next level (whatever that level may be!). The support...

    Cons

    Tough to name one. The corporate day-to-day and "cube life" transition was difficult at first, but it was certainly a good transition. People truly work better when they're happier, obviously something 9Gauge is well aware of!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    The people are great, the work interesting and the pay is good. 9Gauge is a place that places morality, ethics and the team as the highest priorities. I wasn't sure consulting was for me but as I transitioned out of the corporate world the thing I was looking for more than anything else is the opportunity to make a difference. 9Gauge gives me that opportunity. The best thing I can say about the firm is that I plan on...

    Pros

    9Gauge is amazing, I love the work - it's challenging and changes with every new client. The people are incredibly talented and super friendly - I learn something every week and love starting new projects to meet new members of the team. Most of all the partners truly value their employees and give back to us with sincere thank yous/shout outs at group meetings, team lunches/happy hours, and point systems that you can...

    This place has an amazing supportive and positive culture and employs the finest caliber of people I have ever worked with.

    Getting your footing and establishing a routine for all clients is an adjustment. (But the support to help you do so is amazing)

    I have been working at 9Gauge Partners

    Pros

    9Gauge is a fun environment with challenging tasks. The partners know that clients expect the highest quality work from us, and they are all so willing to help and contribute. There is never a moment that I stop learning. I thought coming in that I had experience in financial analyses, but these people really know what they are doing. And they still do it with a smile on their face! Everyone here is friendly, and the...

    Cons

    Not too many things or anything to complain about the company. We are small now, and we are all quite busy with clients at all times. However, we do plan to grow much bigger in the near future. The amount of work that we have here is warranted by the effort that we put in to learn and produce. We work hard and play hard. No need to find a con on an great situation!

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the great opportunity, and continue to find A-Players that fit our culture! Surrounding each team member with great company is always a move in the right direction. Keep proving to the world that Financial Analysis and Accounting are exciting and fulfilling areas to work!

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

    Pros

    9Gauge is a progressive and growing company backed by impeccable values and a phenomenal leadership team. My co-workers are some of the smartest and efficient people I’ve ever met; they are all enjoyable to work with and possess a can-do attitude. I’m so glad to have come across this opportunity and I’m excited to be a part of this growing company!

    Cons

    It’s honestly hard to come up with a con. As most people have said, I really enjoy the people I work with and I wish I could spend more time with them. Since we are a virtual company and people are working on different clients/projects it is not always possible. I know our leadership team has tried to facilitate more breakfast/lunch meetings, but due to client work not everyone can make those events. To me though, this...

    I have been working at 9Gauge Partners full-time

    Pros

    I have worked at this company for quite some time now, and in the past I have worked for some large corporations.What I see here are people who at times are placed separately, but never are apart. The team has always been available by phone, text, or email to answer any of my questions. The leadership has decades of combined experience in their respective fields and are quite knowledgable in providing insight on financial...

    Cons

    In a virtual environment, I have trouble meeting up with co-workers on a more regular basis. Also, the company is small for now, so there is no 401k matching.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to find ways to bring the team together. The people here are so great that it is a shame we don't see each other more often!
