Pros

Peers are great
Relaxed enviornment
A lot of experience gained with financial accounting functions and various accounting software
Growing company
Excellent business idea- accounting outsourcing

Cons

Work may get redundent at times
Although it is a CPA firm, it is not a public accounting firm per se, so compensation is relatively lower than CPA firms in the area.
The nature of the business breeds bad clients
Senior management rarely communicates with lower level staff
Huge power distance between staff and senior management
Training is really poor, you are basically thrown a project and told to figure it out at least 75% of the time with minimal training or zero training at all.

Advice to Management

Keep adjusting as you grow, but try to talk and interact more with staff. Learn systems such as SAP to get larger, more impressive clients. Create legit training programs rather than powerpoint slides and video's. Don't wait until the last minute to make necessary HR adjustments. Keep reeling in the clients!

    I have been working at Rose Financial Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very collaborative-team oriented work environment.
    Everyone goes out of their way to check in with each other and help out in whatever way they can -even the partners are more than happy to work side by side with employees.
    Your opinion really counts ! Management constantly asks for employees opinions and suggestions, and when given do everything in their power to execute it.
    Weekly employee activities-including popcorn day , food trucks on fridays , walking wednesdays...and other events like employee appreciation week and the holiday party.
    We have the worlds best coffee (very important for an accounting firm)
    Most importantly , RFS is very into giving back just because they can. We have a semi annual Meals for the Homeless event where the entire office gets involved in assembling sandwiches and lunch bags for those in need -this past time we made over 1,950 meals (which is incredible ).
    Management is very transparent with employees on the goals and recent progress with the company.
    I don't know how else to say "I love it here and you would be lucky to work here"

    Cons

    Fast paced and always changing -but , I like that. You don't learn anything if nothing ever changes and you are never bored.
    RFS is not for anyone who puts forth less then 100% effort all the time-that's what sets us apart from others and brings the firm together.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work !
