I have been working at Yeo & Yeo full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Employees are developed personally and professionally within and outside the company. The salary structure with the comp. days & all of the additional benefits (PDO, insurances, etc.) is above and beyond almost all other employers. The firm gives you the ability to volunteer during business hours at many different non-profits.

Cons

A few challenges that come with at any public accounting is balancing the workload and personal time during the busy hours.

Advice to Management

Try to further develop the mentor-mentee program. There are so many things to learn, like billing, account management, business development, etc., however there are not too many guidelines that new and up-and-coming employees can follow. A mentor would be an excellent person to "show-the-ropes" to the new employees.

    I worked at Yeo & Yeo full-time

    Pros

    Good salary, compensated for exorbitant amounts of overtime, youthful (due to high turnover).

    Cons

    Management is heartless capitalists who only care about the bottom line. Layoffs are commonplace, turnover is high, pressure is high, the only motivation is for personal profit (nothing rewarding in the work). The culture is one of competition and fear. Each office is different, but a general theme of treating employees like low-skilled wage slaves is commonplace. Although salary and benefits may look decent at first, the company will do as little as necessary when it comes to these things. Management is all old, white men (with a few submissive women in the mix) and is completely old school. I imagine board meetings are similar to boards of firms in Birmingham Alabama in the 1950s. Public accounting in general has its negatives, but this place is just terrible.

    Advice to Management

    A few things that might help include actually caring about your employees as people, taking an interest in and investing in their success and well-being. Rather than looking at employees as replaceable labor, invest in teaching employees the culture and values of the firm and growing strong leaders from within.

    That said, the firm needs a major cultural transformation. Gender equality, racial diversity, work-life balance, flexible scheduling, having trust in employees who you select to hire, respecting differences, offering stability, finding ways to avoid overworking people, etc. Little perks like offering meals for employees when they come in for overtime (Saturdays), providing gym memberships, sponsoring outings, etc. Many of these changes will be beneficial for employees, but also economically beneficial in how productivity will increase.

    I am disappointed that the perception of this former employee was so negative. I would welcome a chance to talk to you in person to sincerely listen to the variety of items that you brought up. My... More
