    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
