    "Good Place!"

      Current Employee - Administrative 

      I have been working at Berdon full-time

      Pros

      Thriving and progressive firm, full of smart and talented people. Management/Partners have an open-door policy. Good place to broaden one’s knowledge and capabilities. Expect to work very hard, but the firm reciprocates in kind.

      Cons

      Continue developing/providing more wellness/ergonomic/teleworking benefits

        I have been working at Berdon full-time (Less than a year)

        Pros

        Management is always willing to help; their doors are always open. There are many opportunities offered for professional growth. My supervisors and managers always push me by offering more tasks, some more challenging than others. They are also very understanding with scheduling, if you need personal time, etc.

        Cons

        It's busy during Tax Season: extended hours and may have to come in on weekends.

        Advice to Management

        Keep doing what you're doing!

          I have been working at Berdon full-time

          Pros

          None- bunch of old men

          Cons

          This place is horrible. Not a nice firm. I started here about a year and half ago and the people are just mean and snobby. If you are any level below supervisor you are basically doing all the work and all they have to do is check it over, now since all the levels below are slaves shouldn’t the supervisors/principles and partners be nicer to us since we are doing their slave work. People need to appreciate the lower levels...

          Advice to Management

          Be nicer and more sympathetic to people, that will lead to bigger success’s in the future. The happier the employees the better the push and success for this company.

          Pros

          None at all. Bad place to work at

          Cons

          They say the firm is wasting money so they fire admin staff. COO spends money on car service to and from work and for her family everyday. Orders breakfast and lunch paid by the firm and has it delivered to her.

          Advice to Management

          Look at yourself before firing people

          I worked at Berdon full-time (Less than a year)

          Pros

          There are absolutely no pros when it comes to working with this firm, especially if you're not an Accountant.

          Cons

          Deceptive Cuts costs every chance they get Outsourcing multiple departments with no notice. Hires people that don't know the basics. Firm is completely out of touch which explains the droppings in the vault rankings. The firm was in a great place when Stanley was still in charge, it is now a disaster.

          Advice to Management

          It is 2018, not 1965. This firm needs to get with the times. Invest your money properly.
