      I worked at Lindquist full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      This employer has good people, great clients and a fantastic management team who oversees everything. All equipment is provided and the software they us is great.

      Cons

      The work is very stressful and the working hours are very long. Deadlines can be very short, and a car is required since the clients aren't in a centralized place.

      Advice to Management

      Scheduling for the auditors could be improved.

      I worked at Lindquist full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Pay over time... If you dare to add into your budget.

      Cons

      Backstabbing environment. Partners, seniors and managers always talk about each other after they leave the office and at some point staff is required to join in the conversation. Seniors and audit staff are always lost and confused with work papers as the work is almost always copied from prior year. If seniors turns it in and is wrong, staff is to blame. The industry this company is in is slowly dieing. Very hard to...

      Oh boy, where and how do i start this? - Partners>Auditors relationship is below freezing levels. - Old school management style with some old rusty managers to deal with - Not a fun place to work at. Boring and dark. Working at a mortuary would be better. - Office Politics? A+. if u work there for 4 years you can beat Trump. - Cheap, VERY cheap... HR was a joke. - Finally, you won't be able to pay your rent off that...

      Advice to Management

      Loosen up a little bit. Get rid of your unqualified managers. Pay better. Give better benefits to your hard working staff. Compete or you will never ever keep your best staff.
