    I worked at Barnes, Dennig & Co. full-time

    Pros

    Good reputation as a well-respected regional CPA firm

    Cons

    Very unprofessional work environment. It is decided right away if the team likes you or not. The seniors were extremely rude, cliquey, unhelpful and you had to learn everything on the fly on your own. Zero training whatsoever. The manager's people skills were nonexistent and didn't say more than 3 words to me my entire time there. Your work was ignored and instead would receive reviews that were not truthful and embellished.

    Pay also low compared to market

    Pros

    The firm offers a solid management team, lower-than-market-average work hours, family environment, high competency and strong client relationships. This firm is the best experience I have had in the Cincinnati market.

    Cons

    I would like to see more diversity in the shareholder group.

    Pros

    You will work hard and you will learn on your own

    Cons

    very low salaries comparing to market, very bad culture, poor training , unprofessional , Managers and partners, ignore any improvement or highly effective solutions staff members may have implemented in the work, in order to focus on figuring out what can be blamed on them, and they look down upon seniors , also seniors treat staff very bad. They all lie about everything.

    Advice to Management

    Try to change the whole culture.

    I have been working at Barnes, Dennig & Co. full-time

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Safe work location. Being downtown is great. If you want to work part time they will be very happy to let you. The benefits are similar to other CPA firms.

    Cons

    Right now management is struggling to keep top performers and isn't developing/training staff so they can replace them. A lot of hiring from outside for senior and up positions versus promoting from inside. Pay is below average with annual increases that do not keep salary competitive with that outside the firm. New hires are making more than those who have been with the company for years. Lost 3 days of vacation with new vacation policy without any compensation to adjust for it.

    Advice to Management

    Strive to develop and train your employees. Listen to their complaints and suggestions. Pay your employees what the market wage is if you want to keep them. Value your investment in your workforce and treat them like the assets they are.

    Pros

    The schedule can be very flexible, although this depends which senior manager you work for. Lots of opportunities for part-timers.

    Cons

    Training and accounting expertise are not highly valued; being mediocre is OK. Expect below average pay, sparse feedback, and promotions for those who "brown nose".

    Advice to Management

    Solicit feedback from non-managers in private. You have numerous talented individuals that are looking to leave because their ideas are ignored by senior managers.

    Offer more training.
