    Pros

    They provide excellent training opportunities and opportunities for growth.

    There is some emphasis on work life balance, but it's not consistent, and varies from team to team depending on the people you are working with.

    They will try to work with you to help you create a career that you want.

    Cons

    Culture was a top down message that wasn't generally followed by all the employees. I personally experienced derogatory comments from my superiors within the office related to gender and sexual orientation. I also witnessed minor instances of sexual harassment of my female coworkers at work sponsored events. While not commonplace, it was a pretty regular occurrence and I never noted any reprimand for those actions and comments.

    The company also has inconsistent expectations across teams and departments. Since this is public accounting, one employee can have very mixed messages relating to hours expectations (Some expect staff to stay and work 10/12 hours days, others expect the work assigned to be finished, even others expect staff to simply not work as much).

    Advice to Management

    As you continue to grow, some aspects of your people management will need to grow as well.

    I have been working at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - The people at the firm are genuinely friendly and easy to talk to.
    - Management at the firm care about employees professional development
    - Most managers treat lower level employees with respect and actively engage with employees outside of work.
    - Generous PTO with option to earn 2 additional weeks.
    - Competitive salary for public accounting at the associate level. Busy season bonus available based on hours worked.

    Cons

    - Busy season hours are long, albeit slightly better than Big 4 firms
    - The firm should do more to more closely match salary increases with Bay Area high cost of living.
    - Firm’s benefit plan could be improved by including gym and cell phone subsidy to match larger firms
    - Salary raises and bonus should be tied more to performance. Most people get the same raises. Not enough distinction in pay to properly and fairly recognize high performers.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, management seems to be taking the firm in the right direction. More recognition from management for high performing employees would help improve satisfaction and retention.

    Pros

    - opportunity is available to all that want it, no matter what group you choose - as a first year you choose tax, audit, accounting services/CFO or consulting. Partners and managers are very approachable with a coaching and learning environment.

    Cons

    People are rewarded somewhat equally, highest performers not separated and rewarded significantly different to others, commuting to one of the three Bay Area offices can be difficult at times with traffic.
