Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

As long as you're doing a decent job, you won't get laid off, which is a good thing in this economy.

Cons

No upward advancement
Management is clueless
No transparency or communication from management
Major player wannabe without any strategic planning
Pointless reviews. Are told how to rate oneself as dictated by HR and then use those same low numbers to merit performance increments (or lack thereof)

Advice to Management

Start engaging ALL employees and listen.
Provide merit awards to those who should be given them.
Stop coddling the NC office. There are four other locations whose employees need attention.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at AICPA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Flexible hours and work from home
    - Working with people in the organization
    - People are friendly and helpful
    - Compensation

    Cons

    - Half the managers are unqualified
    - No sense of priority. A project becomes a priority this week because someone was louder than someone else. Next week is no longer a priority but still expected to deliver on both
    - Multiple initiatives not enough staff
    - Flexible hours, the expectation from top management is to get it done in any way possible every day of the week. Leading to a lot of uncompensated overtime.
    - Projects are badly scoped or not all
    - Lack of focus. There is a need cascaded by management to please the customers with anything they want or need. Even if unreasonable.
    - Over promise and under deliver all the time
    - No vision for the department
    - Management rarely provides direction and lacks communication
    - Senior management have their not so secret weekly meetings and decisions don't get shared with staff
    - Management by fear "if you don't deliver by X date you will lose your job"
    - Title card gets pulled if you disagree on an approach with management
    - IT has a bad reputation with the rest of the business and is not trusted

    Advice to Management

    - Train management to lead not to manage
    - Place qualified personnel in positions that match their skill and not because of politics
    - Senior management needs to open their office door and get to know the team
    - Deliver what is promised to staff, don't twist things because you could not deliver. Be honest and transparent
    - Provide direction and support to staff
    - Provide training and professional development
    - Allow staff to have the opportunity to express themselves without repercussions
