    I worked at PKF O’Connor Davies full-time

    Pros

    Hands down the people. Everyone is also very willing to help and you learn A LOT. Work life balance is pretty good for the most part too.

    Cons

    No downsides, just your typical public accounting firm. Busy season hours are better here and flexible, option to work from home on Saturdays as well.

    I worked at PKF O’Connor Davies full-time

    Pros

    Good starting pay Experience with different types of clients

    Cons

    Not so open door policy Not willing to train Very stiff office environment

    Advice to Management

    Dont accuse employees of nefarious acts without asking the employee what happened first, calling into question someones integrity and berating them after only working there for a month is not exactly the way to get the best out of someone.

    Pros

    Mid sized but still has small firm feel Good name

    Cons

    Its a big deal if you work from home once in a blue moon Dont reward you for your CPA (They give you a one time bonus and not a salary bump)

    Advice to Management

    Let people work from home once in a blue moon Give people bumps for passing the CPA

    I worked at PKF O’Connor Davies full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I worked out of the Harrison office so it was close to home and I didn’t have to travel into the city, other than that nothing.

    Cons

    If you are considering this company for your first position out of college I highly recommend you look elsewhere. The hours are standard for public accounting but at the staff/ senior level they will not allow any of the flexibility you get anywhere else. They can’t allow it because the partners & management do not trust employees and nor are they concern with their professional development. HR will agree with your...
