    I worked at Novogradac & Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Learned tremendously about audit and tax procedures, as well as, accounting in general. Novogradac is a great place to gain experience. Office was laid back which created a comfortable work environment. Everyone was extremely helpful throughout the internship and were always happy to answer any questions I had. Managers gave plenty of feedback and gave explanations about what we were doing and why we were doing it to...

    Can get a little overwhelming around client deadlines, but that’s to be expected as it is busy season.

    I have been working at Novogradac & Company full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    1. Great launching pad to get audit/tax experience firsthand with an internship if you are unsure of what you want to do 2. Learn a lot about real estate 3. Fully stocked kitchen with snacks and drinks

    Cons

    1. Niche industry to real estate; does not tap into their potential pool of SaaS companies in the bay area; firm is risk-adverse in that sense when comparing 1:1 versus another mid-sized firm like Armanino (hyper growth at #25 firm versus Novogradac with more flat-line growth at #33); mind you market has been good the last 10 years 2. Pay is not competitive for high CoL areas 3. Depending on the team you are ultimately...

      Pros

      -Being able to do both audit and tax keeps things interesting and more opportunities to learn new things -They really excel at employee training -Business casual attire -There can be really awesome co workers that make you want to work hard!

      Cons

      -lowest PTO days (15) compared to quite a few other accounting firms and the PTO includes your sick days. After working there for 3-4 years you can get a couple more days.Try not to get sick or try to work through it so you can get enough PTO days. - Base salary as you move up doesn’t seem to be adjusted each year for cost of living or inflation, but the staff entry levels have been consistently adjusted upward every...

      I have been working at Novogradac & Company full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Excellent and affable partner. Patient and very helpful supervisors. Experience in both audit and tax. Great training programs to earn CPE credits and to extend technical skills. Flexible hours. Fully stocked kitchen. Paid overtime for seniors and below. This is a young firm, contributing to the firm and growing with it is rewarding.

      Cons

      Busy season (usually from January to March) is very challenging. Depending on the workload, summer might be a little slow.

        Depending on the team, you could get a great team or a terrible team. Understaffed and lots of work

        Advice to Management

        Focus on staff and see how they're struggling. It's not all about money

        Pros

        Really great at giving extra perks (stocked kitchen, weekly meals through busy season, busy season gift, end of season parties) Also enjoy that i have experience in both Audit and Tax. Great to have the resources that comes with being an industry leader.

        Cons

        Busy season is just that...BUSY! There are busy season expectations of long hours with tight deadlines. Don't expect to make plans from January to April (as with any public accounting firm). Client deadlines are expected to be met even if unrealistic.

        Great accounting firm where one can stay up-to-date on their audit and tax knowledge simultaneously. Challenging work on daily basis.
