    I worked at Elliott Davis Decosimo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is nothing positive about this company. They like to pluck other candidates from mcgladrey so that they can save money on training.

    Cons

    The term busy season means no work life balance. Horrible management. Institutionalized covert racism. The demographics of the firm do not represent the cities they are located. Horrible travel incentives. Over crowded and out dated office. I shared a office with multiple people. Terrible parking for new employees unless you're a shareholder. Mediocre clients represented.

    I worked at Elliott Davis Decosimo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Generally well supported when reaching to obtain goals and desires. Ability to own your destiny. Life is good when you are "in" with the right Partner.

    Cons

    Squeaky wheel gets the attention. Bonuses are subjective and at the discretion of an unknown being. Don't know if bonuses are for productive work, long hours, or being the squeaky wheel. Partner reputation and activities can be a distraction and set a poor example. If a Partner does not "take an interest" in you, your career flat lines.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the things you do well. Don't pretend you do them all well.
