    I worked at Cotton & Co.

    Pros

    Decent work life balance, Adequate opportunities for professional development courses, Most client sites are close to public transportation; Decent employee benefits package.

    Cons

    No 360 reviews; Lower level staff is penalized if they expose weaknesses of incompetent / unprofessional managers; Lack of communication throughout all levels of management; Lackluster salaries, bonuses, and pay raises.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your lower level staff members, and not take them for granted. Just because someone does not have CPA does not mean they are not competent or subject matter experts, especially if they have been in the workforce (industry) for several years. Also, stop being so cheap when it comes to employee compensation.

    I worked at Cotton & Co.

    Pros

    The partners and senior managers are incredibly knowledgable in the Federal Government Sector. There is an open door policy that I appreciated and valued. There is a heavy emphasis for certification which is rewarded with bonuses.

    Cons

    Compensation is below average, opportunity for advancement is difficult and recognition (verbal or monetary) is not provided beyond year end performance reviews.

    Advice to Management

    If Cotton wants to increase retention at all levels then senior management should listen to their employees, recognize people who are working above and beyond as compared to their peers and provide more verbal feedback and on-spot bonuses.

    I worked at Cotton & Co.

    Pros

    Regional firm with wide range of services offered to government clients. Lots of exposure to different clients and different engagements.

    Cons

    Less than desirable interactions with senior management and management techniques could definitely be improved. Very absent partners on their engagements.

    Advice to Management

    Work towards improving employee morale and culture of firm. Encourage team building activity and firm interaction with other employees within firm.
