People genuinely care about one another and there isn’t the back stabbing feel like I experienced at the Big 4. Leaders are very visible and accessible, and there is a culture of wanting to do the right thing for employees, clients and our communities. In my experience, most everyone lives our values of Respect, Excellence, Accountability and Leadership. Pay is competitive. Benefits are excellent.
Lots of change in trying to remove silos that naturally occur when many companies are merged or acquired. No clear reporting structure within Tax and Audit structure makes people feel like they don’t know where to turn for support at times. Not much diversity, though I don’t blame recruiting efforts or management for that. A few old-school shareholders refuse to come in to the 21st century in their ways of thinking.Clark Schaefer Hackett Response9mo

Pay is adequate and raises are more common than not. An average annual raise is about 3%. The firm offers reimbursement of professional necessities such as networking events and CPE.
There is a diseased corporate culture. Despite spending 7 figures on a consultant to improve the culture, the problem has not been fixed. The tone at the top is pure greed; therefore, employees are only valued as cogs in the machine. There is no human element to the culture. If you produce bucks, great. If you don't, the shareholders do not care "why". Your family and your health are not the firm's priority. The only priority in life is the firm.3

The pay is really good. A few managers were super nice and open. They really want to get to know you outside of work. They are very flexible regarding your work environment.
Quite a few cliques. Communication was lacking. The older shareholders and former shareholders are super nice; however, the younger employees were uninviting.

Pros: They really try to help as much as possible and are very open. Even partners sat down and walked me through things that were way below their pay grade. Everyone at the Columbus location was really nice and I enjoyed my experience.
Cons: Typical busy season overtime could put you at 50-70 hours/week. Of course, you won't have a life during busy season but you'll end up with a ton of cash.

I worked for the consulting division, Clark Schaefer Consulting, for almost 4 years. Lot has changed over the years but flexibility and work-life balance were great Pros.
Leadership of the organization was great until the beginning of 2022. After that moment, culture became toxic, pay and compensation was terrible and leadership did not provide the tools and support to be successful. Leadership doesn't listen to their employees and ultimately may be the downfall of the division of consulting.1
