    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at CPA as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Staff was basically friendly, albeit a bit aloof, manager didn't have a clue, was stressed and really unsure of the next steps

    Cons

    Most of the accounting was extremely labor intensive and management didn't have a clue as to how to fix the problem, far too many accounting problems and management can't lead. Management seems more concerned with staying behind closed doors and keeping their head in the sand. The owners have gutted the company financially, seems to be ripe for take over

    Advice to Management

    Sell to the company to someone who knows how to run it.

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

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here that I can think of.

    Cons

    You will work 60 plus hours a week- they don't ask you to do it, they DEMAND it
    They give you unclear instructions and expect you to read their minds
    They give you tasks and expect you to complete them in very unreasonable time frames
    EXTREME micro-managers
    You will go home every night completely stressed-out and miserable, and the pay will fall far short of making up for it.
    I once got a "talking to" for making a 5 minute emergency personal phone call, despite the fact I was putting in 60 plus hour work weeks
    Don't expect any praise from anyone for a job well done- they manage by negative reinforcement(i.e., you will only hear from them when you make a mistake, or they have some other reason to verbally attack you)

    Advice to Management

    Based upon the upper management that was there when I was- the best advice I could give to the CEO- CLEAN HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    The job sounded too good to be true, and it really is!

    Cons

    - All salesperson who work for this company are expected to work 7 days a week, due to prospecting, client visits, and sales preparation.
    - Phone day is atrocious!
    - Still use 'old school' sales techniques of using index cards, cold calling, scripted sales presentation.
    - No integrated CRM system in place even if the product is an 'on-line debt recovery service.
    Do not give customer service, and do not care about their customers. Essentially, they want customers who have overdue accounts, debts sign there and then.
    - No real work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Being more realistic and practical for their management.
    Advertise real opportunity not an 'employment scam'

    Grow up and learn accounting.
