    Pros

    Great training and a lot of opportunities to build your career. Because it is a small firm, you have the chance of being exposed to many industries.

    Cons

    At this point there are no cons I am thinking of. I think the leadership is on the right track to build a stronger company day after day

    Pros

    Free lunch Fridays, attempts at employee engagement

    Cons

    Condescending, rude, paranoid, tantrum throwing management that hold staff to impossible, vague and double standards.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to balance being professional with being human, stop sweating the small stuff. People don’t leave jobs; they leave bad managers so get a clue

    "Audit Staff"

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Mitchell & Titus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent exposure to not-for-profit and employee benefit plan audits. Challenged to learn on the fly.

    Cons

    Constant turnover of managers and seniors due to cost cutting and more experienced employees finding better and higher paid jobs with larger accounting firms. Not much experience besides not-for-profit and employee benefit plan audits.

    Advice to Management

    Management does not listen to its employees or show any interest in doing so. Many people have left the firm. Management always makes it seem like they were terrible employees which is a total lack of respect to a lot of hard working and dedicated former employees. It is sad!

    "The legacy of having been a big 4 member firm, has created a stuffy, bureaucratic environment."

    I worked at Mitchell & Titus full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a small firm so you get to know most of you colleagues. Very specialized EBP and NFP work. Traveling is ample especially at the lower levels.

    Cons

    There is tons of disconnect at the top and it's quite apparent to everyone. None of the partners are on the same page as to the direction the firm is headed. It takes a very long time to get questions answered. Partners fail to live up to their promise of having 'an open door policy'. They've attempted to have open forums and town halls but all that ends up happening is the partners ask you to write your questions on notecards that never even get looked at.

     The planning stage of audits is laughable. Team planning meetings are, for the most part, held when field work is completed or almost completed. Partners will have a lot of criticism of managers and seniors and take absolutely no ownership of their lack of involvement in the planning process.

    Many, at all levels, are stuck on the "roll forward PY work papers" even though they've adopted a completely new methodology. There is no room for people at the lower level to express any creativity or flex their professional judgment muscles. Any ideas that get brought up are quickly shut down, with no discussion, if they are not in line with what was done in previous years. There is very little room for growth and development and they are hemorrhaging clients and personnel.

    Advice to Management

    You need to make a huge investment in your culture. That does not just mean some half baked, half day, "team building event". It takes time and commitment by all the partners to build an environment of creativity and enthusiasm.

    Pros

    There is clear room for growth from the bottom up. Having a home grown CFO is very encouraging. Providing food on Friday's fosters a family feel.

    Cons

    There are still some growing pains in regards to technology and software conversion. People move on for various reasons, but the impression on employees is negative.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to implement the ideas from HR to build cohesiveness.

    I have been working at Mitchell & Titus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am just beginning my career at MT and so far I am thoroughly impressed! First week orientation was amazing! I met the entire executive team and they are great people with a clear vision for the future. The office culture is great and everyone wants you to succeed and helps you to do so. There is a true open door policy in policy and I speak to the partners on a daily basis. I have been on several different engagements and have learned so much in just a short amount of time. Although, this is a mid-sized firm it has the pedigree of a Big 4 without the politics.
    One thing that stood out to me is the clear opportunity for growth! I truly mean real growth with the ability to make partner. There is opportunity everywhere here, which is great because I came from a firm with no opportunity.
    Although, I am still new I have a great feeling about this place. All the employees in my office are genuine and friendly and there is real opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    I have no cons at this point.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be engaged and listen to employee feedback.

    Pros

    nice office location in NYC, that's about it

    Cons

    Leadership does not work hard and is not very smart. They don't even really bother to fake caring about staff and career development. The split from EY was poorly design end executed.

    There is little doubt why EY paid millions to rid themselves of M&T

    Advice to Management

    Work hard, be smart, replace yourselves
