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

    Pros

    Armanino LLP, led by Andy and Matt Armanino has a quality of leadership other firms covet and struggle to implement. Their leadership by example permeates its way across and down the work environment and culture from the Partner/Manager level to the Staff Accountant role respectively. It is no mistake that Andy "was named to INSIDE Public Accounting's (IPA) 2016 Most Admired Peer List".

    Other firms have vision and mission statements; however few allocate the resources and time to support them. Armanino in contrast does allocate the time and resources.

    Armanino's purpose is "to be the most innovative and entrepreneurial firm that makes a positive impact of the lives of our clients and people". Further, its second core value is "empowerment" defined as, "we encourage our people to follow their ideas and passions, and we give them the freedom and support to succeed".

    That sounds fluffy until you consider the time and resources Armanino dedicates to people development. For example, this firm has a Learning and Development Department. They host personal and professional development courses weekly. Courses include: Excel skills, Writing Improvement, Emotional Intelligence in the Work Environment, Professional CPE, 10 tips for Powerful Power Point presentations, Leadership for first line supervisors, 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange Workshops, Supervising a Respectful Workplace and more.

    At Armanino you will be encouraged to pursue opportunities that interest you! As a late career changer who's work for some of the best leadership worldwide before, Armanino measure up and then some. The intangible respectful and encouraging environment "counts".

    Other notable positives include leading cloud based technology platforms, modern workspaces, and a deep bench of Partner intellectual capital that's accessible as a Staff Accountant.

    Cons

    I have not experienced any, hence the world class leadership working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    Pros

    Friendly people, challenging work, solid growth potential, actual work-life balance

    Cons

    401k match would be nice - although profit sharing is a good alternative!
    Onboarding needs to involve not just Armanino history and procedure but procedures to help people start their first day

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! The positivity here is infectious and that's the best reflection of you that could possibly exist

    Pros

    Armanino focuses on the quality of the organization.

    As a net new representative Armanino had a poor plan in the Los Angeles market.

    Pros

    Armanino is the most friendly public accounting firm I have worked with. The managers and partners here spent lunch time with the staffs and talk about fun things. All the employees have opportunities to meet and engaged in events with people outside of their department. Highly recommended!

    Cons

    I'm still too new to notice the downsides.

    I have been working at Armanino full-time

    Pros

    The culture here is great! My team has been awesome with supporting me in getting adjusted to my new position!
    I feel like my success in the position really adds value to the organization!

    Cons

    The health benefits are rather below par in general...VERY expensive for the family plans even with HSA

    Advice to Management

    In general, everything about the organization is really great! However, as the company grows and the need to attract more seasoned employees, the health benefits are less than desirable.

    I worked at Armanino full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Diverse, Challenging Work. Many opportunities abound, provided if they are presented to you and you have the support from management.

    Cons

    It is a revolving door accounting firm. Unless you're the son of a partner or good friends with upper management, one's growth is likely to stagnate here. 3-4 years is good before it is time to move on due to the stifling atmosphere of office politics and the disconnect between management and staff.

    Advice to Management

    Partners and Managers need to connect more with staff. They need to know more about staff's ambitions and career goals and assign work based on those goals.

    Pros

    I really enjoy working with the Armanino audit team, the firm is very open to their employees' feedback and is consistently improving their employee experience. The partners truly care about your growth, they've invested in the firm to practice the growth mindset and encourage you to expand your knowledge by always asking questions when you're feeling unsure. You always feel your team has your back, you're never made to feel like you're alone on a job. Additionally, you have great health benefits and a good work/life balance. Bonuses are a nice treat as you work hard to issue on schedule. I am more than happy to recommend good people to this team!

    Cons

    I have yet to encounter a con worth mentioning.

    Advice to Management

    Keep practicing the growth mindset, it truly helps the staff team grow and look up to their superiors.
