    I have been working at Kessler Orlean Silver & Co. full-time

    Pros

    Young and energetic staff members. Majority of partners are approachable on a daily basis. Competitive pay in comparison to larger accounting firms.

    Cons

    Nickel and dime on all perks (e.i. meals during busy season). Preach flexible work arrangements but receive backlash when practiced by employees. Eight partners = working for eight different companies.

    Advice to Management

    Really focus on training younger staff. The eight partners need to be on same page as much as possible because a negative tone at the top is apparent and trickles down to the staff level.

    "Good opportunity in theory, but not in reality. Management is disorganized."

    I have been working at Kessler Orlean Silver & Co. full-time

    Pros

    - Flexible work hours outside of tax season
    - Opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects
    - Salaries for younger staff are decent

    Cons

    - Although management preaches work/life balance and "family environment", this is often not how it is at all
    - Poor alignment between partners of the firm, which leaves staff frustrated
    - Poor training; most partners/directors/managers don't want to take the time to train younger staff, yet they complain when staff don't appear to be improving or learning

    Advice to Management

    Get on the same page - come up with unified procedures and philosophies, and stick to them.
