    Pros

    The firm has a diverse set of clients ranging from start up to very large. The hours are flexible. The atmosphere is friendly. Engagements range from small to larger requiring a team approach. Wide array of skill sets at various levels. One of the largest local Delaware firms which allows for more career opportunities.

    Cons

    Tax season requires longer hours. Improvement is needed on work from home opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the number of firm arranged networking events.

    I have been working at Gunnip & Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Work/Life balance for a CPA firm is great
    - Very relaxed work environment, even during busy season and busier times though out the year
    - Everyone is treated fairly, Partners do a great job of staying involved in all engagements and communicating with all staff to ensure the entire team is on the same page
    - Incredibly well-respected through the Delaware and Tri-State Area; considered the gold standard for public accounting in Delaware.
    - Very team oriented approach, will always have a supervisor or manager there to help guide you through any learning curves or troubling situations while working through an engagement
    - Overall I have had nothing but a positive experience since starting at Gunnip, all the partners are approachable and treat all staff with respect

    Cons

    Only thing I would say is to allow staff more of an opportunity to work from home, especially during busy season and other parts of the year.

    I have been working at Gunnip & Company full-time

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Partners are down to Earth and easy to work with. Diverse clients with the opportunity to work on different types of projects. Competitive salary, incredible profit-sharing and fair amount of PTO.

    Cons

    Communication to staff could use improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Let the staff know what's going on. Hold more firm updates to share information.

    Pros

    The firm services all types of local clients. Gunnip specializes in audit and tax with some consulting opportunities. The hours are reasonable. If you're looking for Delaware, it's hard to do better.

    Cons

    Delaware. The firm has a handful of global clients requiring interesting travel, but most of the jobs are within a 20-mile radius of the office.

    Advice to Management

    Gunnip is an awkward size with partners seemingly outnumbering the staff. The firm needs to grow of its comfort zone.
