            Pros

            This firm is growing and it has a great culture with many smart and motivated coworkers. I like traveling around the Bay Area and meeting new people at all our offices and going out for social events and happy hours. Good pay and benefits with cool perks like Summer hours and flex work policies. It’s a fun and exciting atmosphere with new ideas being welcomed.

            Cons

            The firm is growing and those pains are reflected in difficulty hiring enough people, managements hesitation to jump into every new idea, and some hierarchy but I guess that’s normal in larger companies.

            Advice to Management

            Promote young smart people and give them mentorship and freedom to lead this firm into the future. The CPA world is changing and you could be a leader in this new world if you’re open to new ideas and processes.

            Cons

            It’s public accounting, lots of turn over

            Turn over puts a lot of pressure on the staff and those that stick around are not always shown appreciation
