    Pros

    The Firm is focused on being the premier provider on the West Coast in each of its various services lines. KS&Co's primary service lines generally do not compete directly with the Big Four Firms; rather they are complimentary to the Big Four. With many client projects, KS&Co provides a product that is reviewed by a Big Four Firm. As a result, team members are exposed to complex issues and gain valuable experience early in their careers.

    KS&Co has added several new partners recently, which resulted in a quick recovery from the economic slowdown. In addition, because of the focused service lines, the impact of the recession to the Firm was not nearly as significant as it was to other firms. The Firm is growing and creating opportunities for its team members. The partners have hired some strong performers and made several terminations over the past year that have improved the overall quality of the team.

    The Partner group is focused on developing its employees into future managers and partners. The Partner group rewards team members who work toward being a top performer. This is not only performance metrics, but continuous demonstration of teamwork and client focus.

    The Firm has an attitude of continuous improvement. This is especially true in technology. The management is always looking to improve processes and procedures, and we use technology as the primary driver of improvements.

    Cons

    Because of the changes over the past two years with the economic slowdown and the firm adding new partners, the communication from management has not always been timely. This issue is being addressed and remains a top priority for the partnership.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking for improvements in communication

    I worked at Kieckhafer Schiffer full-time

    Pros

    Amazing firm! I learned how to do all types of tax returns and they trusted us with complex assignments. They also pay overtime and compensate employees well with food and other perks for the long hours. There are also good opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    I put in a lot of hours, even as an intern in school. I put in some 60 hour weeks and 14 hour Mondays, but that is usual for busy season. There was also a lot of pressure to make the budgeted time on assignments, and some times the budgets were too small.

    Advice to Management

    The training program taught me a lot, but I would work on improving the work-life balance at the firm.
