I have been working at Plante Moran full-time

Pros

- work with some good people
- good client base

Cons

As voiced in some other reviews, decisions are made from a very centralized management that does not take into consideration that there is actually a world outside of the suburbs of Michigan. The firm likes to promote its "no jerk policy" by shoving it down your throat.

    I have been working at Plante Moran full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some nice coworkers and some great clients. Great for first three years of experience but then need to go elsewhere.

    Cons

    When interviewing, they say 2400 average work hours....try 2600 if not more. It's all political favorites and if you are from a merged in firm, you are seen as inadequate as compared to original Michigan p&m hires. Management (all Michigan originals and majority - over 90 percent men) act like Michigan area is the only area that can produce higher thinking individuals. Management transfers in there buddies and they are made equity partners within one year of transfer - even though they don't have a local network or book of business to support partnership......but they are from Michigan. Focus and choice is sold in proposals and Interviews but only a select few get to truly practice focus and choice. High billing rates but low low salary once reach in charge level and up. Save the money to pay partners and dangle the carrot for others who work 2500-2600 hours and receive less than 100grand because they don't make charge hour requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Due to the favoritism and horrible salaries, the firm keeps poor performers with less technical abilities and loses the performers who put their clients and the firm ahead of their own best interests. Management follows what the big 4 does but pays like a small community single CPA size firm. Do the analysis so you retain some talent instead of settling for mediocre.
