    I have been working at CPA.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance until staff members leave the company; co-workers great to work with: intelligent, volunteer help and ideas/experience when needed.

    Cons

    Frequent, disorganized reorgs; career development self initiated and completed; opportunities for promotion lessening

    I worked at CPA.com full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    rank-and-file staff are friendly and helpful. Everyone works hard to do well. Very few slackers except some of the managers who like to work their staff and claim the glory (without actually doing any work).

    Cons

    Upper management has no clue about managing or motivating or rewarding people or recognizing the contributions of individuals. Management insulates itself and speaks only to the managers who manage staff thinking that they tell the truth. In fact, most staff managers simply state what best serves their own personal interests.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just listen to your top level managers. Make an attempt to meet with all employees one-on-one so you can learn what they really think. Your top tier managers just tell you what they think you want to hear.

    Pros

    Progressive, growing company with excellent flexibility and work/life balance. Not much red tape, no micro-management. Leaders empower you to do great work. If you need to be told what to do every step of the way, this is not the place for you. Excellent place for forward thinkers who love challenging work. Benefits are above average.

    Cons

    The company is under staffed in certain areas. Benefit portfolio could be expanded.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to allow for flexibility. Spend time with all employees.

    Pros

    Medical, dental, eye benefits are good and inexpensive. Typically get two summer flex PTO days and sometimes the week of Christmas off.

    Cons

    16 year old company that runs like a startup. Higher ups keep adding to our goals but limiting who we can sell the programs to and wants to run bare bones on staff numbers. There are managers not leaders here that are behind on the times. Recently took away monthly cell phone reimbursement.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take away benefits from your employees. Get with the times; people communicate through email not just phone. Stop spreading your staff so thin, hire more people.
