    I have been working at Durbin Bennett Tax Advisors full-time

    Pros

    Cool downtown office. Great coworkers and clients.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership and organization goals. If its broken it stays the same. Ego & habit is the force standing in the way of success.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are also your clients.

    I have been working at Durbin Bennett Tax Advisors part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working here is like having a second family. Employees foster a supportive and cooperative environment. Management respects your needs and desires and then works to create a path forward which benefits both you and the company. Work is steady, challenging and diverse. Culture is very professional, respectful and friendly. Perks include beautiful downtown offices with a spectacular view of Town Lake, onsite continuing education, 24 hour downtown parking, snacks & drinks, happy hours, and casual Fridays (not always, but often!).

    Cons

    Long hours during busy times.

    Pros

    Some of the smartest, nicest, and most successful people I've ever worked with, and quite willing to share their knowledge and experience.
    Nice office environment overlooking Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin.
    Great experience in investment tax reporting due to their client base associated with the Private Wealth Mgmt affiliate.

    Cons

    As with all successful tax-prep and accounting firms, a lot of hours are required during the weeks leading up to tax deadlines.

    Pros

    A wonderful place to work. I love that it is small enough to be able to speak with the shareholders and get their insight on various situations. I have learned so much working here. The staff, management, and executives are very knowledgeable with complex tax situations. Durbin Bennett is the go-to accounting firm for high net worth clients in Austin and nationwide. It is amazing to see the knowledge of the team and all that they are able to do to help their clients with tax planning and preparation. Great benefits, including snacks and drinks, downtown parking. Beautiful office downtown with a gorgeous view of Lake Austin. I'm very proud to be part of the Durbin Bennett team and I can't wait for many more great years! Oh, and there is an ESOP so the employees own a piece of the company.

    Cons

    As with any accounting firm, the work is cyclical. Tax season is a very busy time and hours can be long. Fortunately, this is only part of the time. Downtown traffic can be tough during the busy hours.
