No opinion of CEO

Pros

- the firm offers a multitude of opportunities for new graduates to learn about all aspects of accounting.

Cons

- the firm is extremely competive and often too hard on new graduates ... especially when they test you in many different areas simultaneously (i.e. tax, audit, consulting)

Advice to Management

I think that it would help if the management gained a better understanding of their staffs wants/needs and helped guide them.

    Pros

    -Very understanding partners who care about the careers and future of employees
    -Challenging, yet very rewarding work
    -Great environment, relaxed yet professional, fun yet hard-working
    -Personable senior management, including regional managers and a CEO who is genuinely interested in younger professionals
    -Good benefits, nice work spaces

    Cons

    -Information technology is weak in comparison to other firms throughout the country, although it appears there is a focus on improving it
    -Compensation appears to be competitive with other firms. But if the company stresses it has the best of the best when it comes to all services within the firm, shouldn't the compensation be more than competitive to retain that talent?
    -Because of mergers in past several years, the communication across the offices is weak. Oftentimes, templates or ideas might be created by several different offices when it would be best for the firm to not waste resources, and instead have the best person involved and communicate out to others.

    Advice to Management

    Continue caring for younger professionals who are on their way up, it definitely shows and shouldn't stop. Continue to grow via merger, but don't be overly aggressive or forget the little guys. It truly is a great place to work and would be very difficult to accept a job elsewhere. But consider compensating higher to keep the talent, we need it.
