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

    Pros

    Great pay, management, experience, and opportunities are limitless. In addition, eligibility for a raise occurs once a year, and is based on your performance.

    Cons

    I don't have much to say that is negative. The only thing that I can possibly think about, is that they could have a better pto package.

    Advice to Management

    Need better pto plan.

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

    Pros

    Location was good. Had a lot of nice perks during the Tax Season

    Cons

    No room for growth. Bad group of people to work with. Training was really lacking. Too many nights of long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and do not take advantage of your employees.

    I worked at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good culture with lots of nice to people to work with on the lower ranks. Brian Kreischer, Managing Partner, is phenomenal, and a great leader.

    Cons

    Mediocre benefits. No upside as a non-Partner. Comp is under-market. Limited transparency and appreciation from Partners. Good for a few years as a staffer, but becomes less rewarding and worthwhile as one advances their career. Better opportunities elsewhere, particularly in the Bay Area.

    I worked at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Plenty of opportunities for growth
    - the freedom to drive your career path
    - compensation and benefits above market
    - fun, loving environment
    - partners are fantastic
    - social events (end of busy season, holiday parties) exceed all other companies
    - Brian Kreischer - the managing partner - fantastic, smart individual that welcomes input from all levels and departments

    Cons

    - smaller firm so you may work with the same staff/managers/partners throughout the year
    - mandatory rotation through tax for incoming associates (could be a pro for some)
    - summer season work can be very boring for new audit senior associates who are scheduled on 401k audits (again this may be a pro for some)
    - slower promotion track as compared to competitors

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing - focus on staff development and the success of the firm will continue

    I have been working at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP as an intern

    Pros

    The internship allowed everyone to rotate through audit, tax, and advisory and it was an awesome opportunity getting to sample each of the different departments and figure out what each individual enjoys. Awesome social events throughout the bay area as well, filled with many firm networking opportunities

    Cons

    Sometimes not enough work, but that put it on the interns to find more work, which is definitely not a bad thing.

    always busy, never a dull moment, and plenty of people to help you out. Great place to gain experience out of college.

    Cons

    no enough training, and not very focused on employee growth.

    Please train your incoming associates better.

    Pros

    Great people, very smart, top notch, better compensation AND better balance than big 4... no brainer if you're looking for an acct firm to join.

    Cons

    new staff members seem a little lack luster, but anyone who makes it past a year seems to be pretty sharp. Not a lot you can do after unless you want to say in accounting

    Pros

    Fun culture (lots of firm-sponsored social events), light hearted atmosphere, and great first job out of college (get to try out different departments before choosing).

    Cons

    Some of the smaller departments, by nature, don't have as much priority in the eyes of the partners. Turnover in these groups have a significant impact on the employees and clients, making it difficult for the partners to ensure continuity. At times, I felt as though better decisions could have been made to keep the right people.

    Pros

    The people they hire are great to work with. The work is mediocre but the people make it worth it. Compensation for accounts are above average, which is nice.

    Cons

    Senior management does not know how to perform their jobs. They try very hard to be a big 4, but they're not. Leadership does not know how to perform C-level duties. Corporate offices and website "look nice" but when push comes to shove during a recession for example, when everyone else cut out office parties, they still had a glamorous one. Senior management publicly annouced that they were NOT doing lay offs, but 2 months later, they did 3 rounds of lay offs. On top of that, they did not even provide severance packages for the people they laid off. Even during the lay-offs, they threw a pricey "post tax season party." Human Resources are a joke, including the performance review process.

    Advice to Management

    Take some C-level courses.
