    I worked at Dixon Hughes Goodman full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They provide a lot of CPE to new and existing staff. Most employees below manager level are fun to work with. You sometimes have the ability to work from home depending on the time of year.

    Cons

    Management consistently tries to operate at a minimum staffing level to maximize profits. They are aggressive with when you can and when you cannot take time off and you often have to explain what you want to do with your time off.

    Charge hours are monitored on a weekly basis and you can expect to get called out whenever you don't meet your scheduled chargeable hours for the week even though you may be on track for or above your annual charge goal.

    Employer 401(k) contribution is only 3% of base salary.

    Advice to Management

    Stop limiting the time that employees can take time off to 3-4 months out of the year. Hire more people. Stop burning out high performers with heavier workloads and spend more time to develop underperforming staff.
