Pros

Many opportunities to get involved with various projects both in tax and audit. Every manager and partner I worked with was more than willing to answer questions. During tax season, I didn't usually stay past 7pm and no later than 2pm on Saturdays.

Cons

At CLA, an entry level accountant must be pooled - meaning they work in both tax and audit. If an individual really likes one area over the other, it seems as though they don't have a choice but to do both. While I think this is beneficial as far as having a broad understanding of both areas, it can also be frustrating if you really like one area more than the other.

    I have been working at CliftonLarsonAllen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is very good for what I do (but the benefits...not so much) and the work/life balance and flexibility were wonderful. But that's where it ends.

    Cons

    If you are a female, you have no chance of making it in the good old boys network, particularly if you're not in Minneapolis. This was not a merger, but a takeover. And all of the culture and values that were once Clifton Gunderson have been stripped away to leave nothing left but a firm that is only concerned with the bottom line. There is no chance to move up in the company if you aren't in Minneapolis or if you are a woman...unless its a role that is deemed as more female centric, but if you're not in Minneapolis, it won't matter anyway. I've seen great quality people get let go. Cronyism is a part of everyday vocabulary. Its sad, I used to love coming to work.

    Advice to Management

    Try honesty once in a while.
