Current Employee - Tax Manager in San Francisco, CA

No opinion of CEO

Pros

Stable career progression, you will get their if not in a rush. Feels like the firm take care of you, semi annual gifts of ice cream/meats, firm resources, people seem to be invested in performance review and process improvement. International rotations do make it feel like a global firm. People are generally open and collaborative; no one is really out to get you.

Cons

Limited advice or direction from senior management. People held back in their positions while new incompetent ones are hired. May be just specific to my area, but candidates are “hired” before they interviewed.

Advice to Management

Recognize people in organization, do not hire garbage from the street, it destroys morale. It is nice to be given responsibility, but reward would be also appreciated.

    Pros

    Your career is rocketed forward. How else could you work your way from an entry level position, into a professional that is being sought after for executive positions with only 6-8 years of professional experience?

    Cons

    The hours are incredibly long, and the compenstion, well doesn't. Thats why turnover is so high, after a year of experience you can go elsewhere, work only 40hrs a week and get a much better compensation package. However, (inverse of above) as soon as you leave, your career progression slows down.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff so that people aren't over worked. It's got to cost something to send people all over for training, only to loose 25% of them after just the first year.


  2. "Great place to learn and develop your career skils"

    Pros

    Career advancement, brand-name clients and ample training. Opportunity to travel if you like it and good performance management system. For the most part, co-works are intelligent from top schools. Opportunities to cross-roles meaning you can work in IT but then maybe work in finance if you are up for it. Lots of social activities for those without families.

    Cons

    lack of work/life balance, partner promises too much and travel. Difficult place to work and raise a family. Compensation is on the lower-hand of the Big 4. Disparate systems for time keeping, training and other stuff - it would nice to have a portal for all onlie needs.

    Advice to Management

    More involvement with staff
