    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits, opportunities to bring in new business since it's a relatively small firm

    Cons

    Sub-par performers, poor promotion criteria, below average management

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent, be fair, reward strong performers not just based on billable hours

    Pros

    The staff are friendly and cordial to each other and you virtually always have the ability to work at your home office.

    Cons

    The work is not interesting or rewarding, it is hard to leave a project even after a year or more, and the staff turnover is quite high.

    Advice to Management

    I work in the government practice, which has no synergy at all with the accounting firm. The CEO is not relevant to our work and does not show much respect for it.
