    Pros

    The people are great for the most part. Overall the people I've had the opportunity to work with have generally been nice and genuine. It all depends on who you work for and who you work with. If you work in the right group, your managers and partners tend to show interest in your growth and career progression. There can be a good amount of flexibility outside of busy season.

    Cons

    Salaries/bonus structure is underwhelming. Sometimes upper management over emphasizes initiatives that aren't necessarily important to their employees.

    Pros

    Lots of work - if you like staying busy. The young people keep it interesting. Team work very evident.

    Cons

    For the administrative staff and all hourly employees - treated unfair in both pay and bonus. No incentive bonus for hourly employees. Reason is that we get OT. Poor excuse as we actually have to WORK OT in order to get OT pay. Not much incentive bonus there.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying attention to ALL your employees.

    Pros

    Fun staff level people who made the days go bye.

    Cons

    Everything else. The BCS group is futile and full of petty management. I regret working here.

    Advice to Management

    Just do better. Stop wasting time and money on name changes and try to invest in your employees.

    Improve benefits and pay to keep people happy and hold onto the folks that keep the place running.

    Pros

    Fun, young coworkers. I really enjoy the people I work with.

    Cons

    Not competitive in regard to pay and bonus structure. Leadership is focused only on the bottom dollar and not the people.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, good benefits and paid time off.

    Cons

    Very slow to adapt to flex time and alternative work arrangements (for example, working from home.)

    Advice to Management

    Need to work on a better onboarding process for experienced hires. Also, too many silos; each partner seems to run their own "practice within a practice" and it can be difficult to figure out what's expected of you. Also, not a lot of camaraderie among the more experienced staff.

    Pros

    Very well-defined service groups and team structures within those groups, generous benefits, numerous opportunities for in-house training in all areas, clear and well-defined paths for advancement, flex hours during off-peak periods, and a very supportive and positive work environment from the top down.

    Cons

    None aside from the usual growing pains of a successful company

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at HA&W | Aprio full-time

    Pros

    The onboarding process ran very smoothly. HA&W has a "buddy" program that pairs you with a more seasoned employee which guides you through the training process & is available to answer any of your questions throughout your first few weeks. The team was very welcoming - each member brings something unique to the table which contributes to a continuous learning environment. Within the first couple of weeks with the firm, I was thrilled to be exposed to various projects & given the opportunity to work alongside SMEs within the team.

    Cons

    Our team is expanding quickly so the usual operational/process growing pains are there. However, the team meets on a weekly basis to plan & track improvement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be approachable & engaged.

    Pros

    Working hard on establishing new culture ahead of growth. It's obvious the firm is working to make HA&W a great place to work. Not everything resonates with everyone (it can't) but no one can say this place is not trying hard.

    Cons

    Slowly figuring out how to become more structured in an environment built to allow Partner independence.

    Can be slow to pivot when obvious solutions disrupt traditional norms.

    Neither of these are uncommon to accounting firms.

    Advice to Management

    Continue evaluating traditional problems using non-traditional methods.

    Pros

    - celebration of milestones (monthly birthday celebrations, days off post-busy season)
     - firm promotes career growth
     - if interested in marketing/volunteering/networking, the firm promotes those activities from the start of your career
     - flex schedules

    Cons

    - goals for incentive plans aren't necessarily easily achievable if involved in marketing
     - busy season hours but this tends to be an issue within the industry overall
