    Pros

    Glassdoor requires I write 5 words for “Pros”

    Cons

    This place was absolutely terrible. So much so I actually still have nightmares years later despite being at a new company (one that treats employees with respect). I can’t stress enough the disfunction of this company. I understand this industry is not all puppies and rainbows but there is still an expectation to be treated fairly and with respect. I have actually heard people in HR and high management positions make...

    Pros

    Summer Fridays are the only one I can think of

    Cons

    Working here was an absolute nightmare. So much so that I started getting anxiety at just the thought of returning to work the next day. I was literally there for a month, my first job out of college, when someone who was my senior left the firm and I was given all of her work and expected to keep up. The worst part is that they were so extremely picky and would find the smallest thing wrong with everyone that came to...

      Cons

      - HR team is a gossip group and a lier! They did not give me severance package what is required by the state law. - Every time I ask question or have suggestion to partner or manager, I was told to follow the IRS instruction. During this time I can't get any hands on experience from the upper level and they barely give you feedback or comments as they don't want waste time to train the staff. You can't have any voice...
