    I worked at Brooks, McGinnis & Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone I worked with was very nice. BMC has a great small company feel and they treat employees well. Work hours during busy season are far less than you would work at a larger firm and there were many times when I didn't need to work on Saturday. Work-life balance is excellent and you feel like upper management really values you.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of room for advancement for more experienced accountants. Salaries are below average, likely because a large percentage of the clients are nonprofits. Upper management is still a bit old fashioned -- dress code is business professional and there was some reluctance to embrace new technology.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating your employees like you currently do, but don't be afraid to embrace changes in the industry.

    Pros

    -There is a good work life balance; there are not a lot of 50 hours weeks
    -The partners are very accessible and friendly
    - The client environment is not high pressure

    Cons

    - The firm is not very progressive
    - The client base is small
    - There is not much room to advance; most managers are part time.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt audit and tax technology more readily and spend more on it; do not do so begrudgingly . Rely more on the leadership of the younger partners who seem to be more adept at working in a paperless environment. Spend more money on acquiring staff and senior talent.

    Keep treating employees how you'd like to be treated; BMC is a very pleasant work environment because you do this.

    Pros

    Very professional organization that cares about the individuals and wants to see them succeed. They care about you professional and personnel development.

    Cons

    There is a definite lack of training and some of the managers and partners appear to have issues with moving forward with technology.

    Advice to Management

    Be more attentive to advances in technology and try to stay open to a wider client base. The salaries need to be more competitive.
