    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.

    I worked at PKF International as an intern

    Pros

    Very helpful and provided an insight to consulting experience of a Full time worker. I gained a great amount of professional skill and expertise on the project I was involved with and the other employees are always willing to help.

    Cons

    Would have preferred for work on projects.

    "My experience has been positive while working at PKF. I have been given challenging projects to work on."

    Pros

    The opportunities I have been given to learn have made this job challenging but rewarding. This is not a place for someone who cannot deal with pressure. Public accounting is that way, though. When I have needed to be off due to family or my own health circumstances, my manager has stepped in to take over. I love my coworkers.

    Cons

    I am not sure that there is a downside. Public accounting is hard and I know some of my coworkers gripe about it and don't like the hours but I do not see how PKF could change that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying and learning just like the rest of us are.

    Pros

    The culture at our firm is so different than anywhere I have worked before and it is great. Management really strives to give their employees what they want and to make a difference. Employees have a voice in the firm and Management listens. Granted, they can't do everything, but I feel they genuinely care and want to make us happy.

    Cons

    Busy season hours can still be a lot of hours. It's not like the Big 4, but it still is public accounting so 50 hour weeks can still be expected sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. They ask us to do a lot, but they don't do the same. They want to, but it can be difficult. If they set an example, we'll follow. If they aren't do what they ask of us, why should we do it?
