    I have been working at KBKG Inc full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great fun culture. Lots of young talent. They treat their best performers really well and try to weed out their low performers.

    Cons

    it can get crazy busy during tax season.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the high standards of who you hire into the firm and who is "counseled out".

    Pros

    great benefits, great place to work at with amazing perks, management does work on developing associates/seniors

    Cons

    extremely long hours during busy season, management is cool but can also lack understanding of how to treat staff in that at the end of the day employees are humans first.

    Advice to Management

    CHECK IN ON YOUR EMPLOYEES MENTAL HEALTH, NOT JUST WHEN YOU NEED A TASK DONE

    Pros

    Great network of coworkers across all offices around the states. If you need input on any topic during a project there is always someone to contact for guidance.

    Cons

    The busy season windows seem to be growing as time goes on since the slow season backlog has been increasing. Be prepared to work long hours and almost 2-3 weeks ahead if you want to stay on track of deadlines.

    I have been working at KBKG Inc full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Small growing company, quick levels of promotion if you can back up your work - Yearly company gathering at their headquarters in Pasadena, CA - Upper level management shows interest in their employees - Very flexible, as long as you get your work done if you need a day to work from home because of an appointment, etc they are fine with it

    Cons

    - Due to small growing company, paid salary is a little bit under national average - Upper level management training is lacking. You learn most of the trade from your fellow colleagues

    I worked at KBKG Inc full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Only pro I can really think of is the travel that is required for the position.

    Cons

    I am almost positive most of the reviews are fake. This company is as shady as it gets, and overworks their employees. If you think you will get a great work/life balance, think again. Please do yourself a favor and look for another company.

    Advice to Management

    I've seen great talent leave while I worked for this company, please do a better job of keeping your employees happy.

    Pros

    There is a firm commitment to doing the right things. The collection of talent is similar to what you would see at a Big 4 firm but with none of the politics. There is immense opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Technology is always a challenge but seems to be getting better.

    Advice to Management

    Separate sick time from vacation time.
