    I worked at PKF International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is particular to PKF Texas

        • Fresh fruit weekly
        • Anniversary Cash Gift Program
        • On-Site Fitness Gym
        • Range of coffee machines (Keurig, Flavia, etc)

    Overall nice place to work. New office setting with updated lighting and office space. Best view of Galleria area.

    Cons

    Millennials vs Baby Boomer Staff. Few Generation X.
    Millennials are full of ideas but Baby Boomer (tenured) staff are reluctant to embrace change.

    Pros

    This is an ideal work-life balance place. They are very flexible and willing to work with you. Central location in the city is nice and great office space and amenities. All clients are local, so not much for traveling.

    Cons

    Accountants are generally introverts and shy to stir the waters. This can lead to issues and forming of cliques/comfort zones of friends. Great people, just poor management amoungst middle mangement.

    Advice to Management

    Don't rely on the senior associates as much. Also, limit the inclusion of them in the review meetings. Having information about the other employees with whom they haven't worked makes for false impressions and favoritism. Seniors are only 23-25 years old. Still time to mature in their management skills

    Pros

    PKF Texas is a firm that is open to different working arrangements. They listen to employee requests and concerns. They want you to succeed if you want to succeed, but nothing is given to you. You will be exposed to a lot of different accounting issues while working there.

    Cons

    Growing, but at a slower pace than you might think possible. The location is better than downtown, but still not the easiest to get to.

    I have been working at PKF International (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    PKF Texas cares about its employees. They are very competitive in terms in salary. They offer great benefits, perks and flexibility. It's a family atmosphere. Employees are also given the opportunity to learn and advance their careers. While it's still public accounting, the overtime expectations are much lower than other firms.

    Cons

    Just like every other company, there will always be things that can be improved. However, I think PKF Texas gets most things right and they are always working to improve the company, keep their employees happy and grow.
