    I have been working at Holthouse Carlin & Van Trigt full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company itself is great. Lots of perks and overtime pay.

    Cons

    The office manager in OC is awful. Work life balance is non existent and there's not a lot of room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    There is some favoritism within the higher ups. Treat every employee equally and listen our concerns.

    I have been working at Holthouse Carlin & Van Trigt full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Partners go out of their way to make all employees feel needed - Casual Attire - Great Pay Structure - Food + drink available for busy times of the year - Work Hard + Play Hard environment

    Cons

    - Some of the locations are packed full of employees with growth so fast it is hard to manage it - Early decisions made in Operations have made it hard to 'future proof' the firm with people holding on to the old way of doing things for the sake of habit - Bottom up culture makes it hard to lobby for changes

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. This is a factor in growth, but do not dismiss new technological advancements because you don't understand them. Invest in more office space to make things more comfortable for all employees!
