    I have been working at Cotton & Co. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have been working at Cotton for two and a half years and was hired as an experienced staff. I have advanced three times and am now in a supervisory role. Cotton is such a great place to work because they promote based on merit and they truly notice and value the hard work and dedication of their employees. If you are willing to learn and attempt challenging tasks that may push your knowledge base and encourage professional...

    Cons

    There is a heavy workload that can be trying at times; however, unlike most other firms (including a larger one I used to work for), Cotton encourages employees to maintain a healthy work-life balance, even during busy seasons.

    Pros

    Cotton and Company is an excellent public accounting firm who specializes in government consulting. - Promotion Opportunity – Cotton and Company does not follow a ridge promotion path based on years of experience. They promote whenever you are ready. Some people get promoted quickly. - Training – They offer training that means many people’s needs.

    I have been working at Cotton & Co.

    Pros

    -If you take the initiative, you will grow and be rewarded. If you just show up to work and do what you're told or expect things to happen for you, it will probably be a very average place to work. -Most partners are approachable and very knowledgeable -Some fairly young partners -Good in house CPE -Bonuses for achieving a variety of certifications -Better tuition reimbursement than competitors -Very smart coworkers...

    Cons

    -Technology is fairly old -The office is a little hard to get to and not as nice as nearby competitors -Somewhat lackluster attitude towards growth. The growth is solid, but competitors in the federal accounting industry are growing much faster -Most employees are very audit focused, even those on consulting projects

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a stronger focus on growth to give employees more room to grow. The technology needs to be improved. Communicate to staff the direction of the firm. There doesn't seem to be a cohesive plan for the direction of the firm (from the staff's perspective anyway).
