    Pros

    The company wants to see you succeed. They go above and beyond to make sure you are satisfied with your position and are always willing to listen to any issues that arise.

    Cons

    Busy season is hard, there is no question about it. You are expected to work long hours, which some may see as a con. However, that is the business of public accounting.

    Advice to Management

    I would love to see more events throughout the year that bring the entire firm together.

    Flexibility, trust from leadership, good people, ability to work independently and on teams. When you address a concern it's taken care of pretty quickly.

    No real cons, it's obvious the firm really cares about its employees so any issues come from the type of work/industry we're in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting the employees first, keep communicating
