    I have been working at PKF O’Connor Davies full-time

    Pros

    PKF O'Connor Davies genuinely cares about its employees. The culture is very warm, kind, and the Firm promotes a great work-life balance. There are nice perks like being able to wear jeans on Fridays and being able to leave at 2pm on Fridays during the summer. The HR department does a good job at making sure employees feel appreciated.

    Cons

    The technology/ programs can be updated. The Tuition Reimbursement Program can be improved on to encourage employees to further their education.

  5. "Best Firm I've Ever Worked For!"

    I have been working at PKF O’Connor Davies full-time

    Pros

    I've been working in public accounting for over 13 years now. I've worked at other small and medium sized firms and PKF O'Connor Davies, by far, is the best firm I've ever worked for. For the first time in my career I truly feel that my job is valued. My boss as well as my direct manager allow me to do my job and they do not micro-manage me because they trust me. They treat me with respect and as their peer as opposed to their subordinate. In addition, the HR team is great! They genuinely care about the employees and making PKFOD a great place to work. They continuously reach out to employees and ask - How are we doing? and What can we do better? They listen to us and they keep us updated on what they are doing to make improvements in all areas of the firm. This is the happiest I've been in my 13+ year career.

    Cons

    I have nothing negative to say!

    Keep up the great work!
