    I worked at CliftonLarsonAllen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people to work with

    Cons

    - Mandatory Saturdays are a waste of time as they only get together to see where engagements are in the audit process, something that can easily be done over an email or phone call.
    - No room for growth or development as Partners do not take an interest in career growth of lowly Associates

    Pros

    Great people, growth opportunities, benefits, and lots of learning opportunities. Career building firm! Industry specialization. Generalist opportunity (works in audit and tax fields). Flex PTO. CPA prep help.

    Cons

    Hours requirements are substantial for the whole year depending on your title/rank. Organizing the amount of work that is in house still needs work because there is a battle with procedures being obeyed.

    Advice to Management

    The way that work is organized is sometimes below par because not everyone follows procedure. By not following procedures it hurts our hours requirement for the month/year.

    Pros

    -Industry Specialization allows you to learn a lot (if you want go in that industry)
    -Nice/Convenient Office Locations
    -Pays higher than other accounting firms

    Cons

    -Industry Specialization can limit exit options
    -Benefits were pretty poor
    -Lack of mentoring/training. Firm wasn’t that big so this was a bit weird to not have management help more

    Advice to Management

    Feels like managers don’t feel comfortable being leaders. Might want to change slogan of being a career building firm
