Pros

It is nearly impossible to be fired, unless you are totally incompetent. Even then management is more likely to lay you off with some excuse. Macias Gini and O'Connell still do a holiday party every year even with the down economic times. The best reason to work here is the staff. The staff are easy going and are generally excited about a beginning as most of the staff come straight from college. The new hire staff bring excitement to a rather boring industry. Macias Gini and O'Connell service large government bodies so there is the chance for future job placement in those locations.

Cons

The main down points are that there is no feedback during the year. The vast majority of the employees feed backs come during the annual evaluation. After the annual evaluation the employee will have to wait until the next year to see if they fullfilled the expectations of management. This concides with another downside, the strength of management. As in a good majority of firms that I have worked at the managers and senior managers are merely staff that has been promoted (you're length of employment determines promotions not your ability) through the ranks, but contain no type of managment skills or training.

Advice to Management

Senior Managment and managers in general should be required to take some managment courses. Most preferrably a Master in Business Administration degree, but just something would be a great help. Just becuase you are given a title does not mean you know what you are doing.

    I have been working at MGO full-time

    Pros

    The company is really trying to improve morale internally. More training, more happy hours, etc. Not sure if pay is increasing though.

    Cons

    Promotions are getting harder to achieve. Focus is on getting jobs done when they should be more worried about work/life balance for employees so they all don't up and quit. It's likely that this is the case is most CPA firms though.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize achievement when earned. Make sure that the promises you make about travel limitations are followed through on and that you are motivating individuals to work hard for a reason.
