    Pros

    The long-run opportunities at Frank Rimerman are amazing. The ladder to the top is no where close as cutthroat as the big 4. Hours throughout the year for a tax associate are very fair. Tax seasons are bad, but the down time is pretty relaxed. Management here is practically unparalleled. They are friendly, patient, down to earth, and considerate of how staff feel.
    There is a tremendous amount of flexibility. You can be lazy and get by and you will never be fired. Or you can own your work, and carve out your career path, and eventually make a lot of money. Either work at this firm, at least for the first few years.

    Cons

    Tax season can be brutal, but its nothing like the Big 4. One should differentiate this job compared to a "normal" 9-5 job, and compared to a Big 4 job. If I were to stay in tax and/or public accounting forever, the Big 4 is the last place I would do it, and Frank Rimerman would be an excellent bet for the long haul. Office politics can nit pick at morale. Management wastes too much money in recruiting; the same level of recruiting could be achieved without burning so much money.

    Advice to Management

    Processes within the tax department can be extremely inefficient at times. Procedures should be more standardized, or work groups should be smaller. Managements knowledge and skills should be available to the staff without the staff having to waste managements time. People ask the same questions over and over and over, and the current "resource" doesn't cut it, so people either eat in to managements time or don't ever bother asking. Also, buying $500 cupcakes every other day during busy season doesn't appease morale like a small bonus or saturday off would.
