    I have been working at Cherry Bekaert full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Excellent work environment which fosters collaboration, accountability, trust and having fun when doing the work. Yes, there are times when it can get more hectic and stressful, but having a great team of colleagues willing to help and gatherings outside business hours help a lot during these times. Great Work/Life balance, plenty of PTO time, numerous opportunities for growth and work on something different.

    Cons

    Can't think of any at this time.

    Cons

    Not really a "con".. but given this is a public accounting firm, we do work the busy season hours just like any other firm. The difference is that we have the resources to delegate some of our work across the firm to other offices that may have capacity. This has helped our associates (staff – mangers) tremendously. We feel like we are ONE FIRM. As a firm, we are trying to make sure the work is spread out so no one gets...
