I worked at MKA full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Hours are reasonable, people are generally nice, significant interaction with partners, paid days off for CPA exam, provides basic real world understanding of accounting, good benefits

Cons

Labor unions, employee benefit plans, non-profits, etc., seemed like a large % of their client base, but there aren't many desirable career opportunities in those industries or overlap between the accounting you're exposed to and what is expected at a for-profit business. Little effort given to employee development beyond standardized CPE.

Advice to Management

Focus more effort on developing employees professionally even if it sacrifices a few billable hours. Cultural emphasis on separating work from personal lives is good for older people with families but leads to little team-building and low morale among younger employees

    Pros

    MKA has a good company culture overall. Workloads are more manageable than they are at other CPA firms and time over 40 hours a week is paid overtime (though not necessarily at a 1.5 rate).

    Cons

    Utilization of technology is poor. Training is insufficient.
