    Pros

    Flexible time off is nice

    Cons

    Plante Moran wants you to think it’s this great place to work with a “jerk” free environment but in my time there, there are plenty of “jerks”. Plante puts a lot of their efforts in ensuring the employees that are in client facing roles are happy and content but they forget about the employees that help support them like Human Resources. Don’t get hung up on the best places to work awards. This firm puts a lot of pressure on its employees to complete that survey. They rely heavily on that recognition to attract talent. Room for growth is impossible as promotions are based on favoritism. Pay is sup par and only certain roles eligible for bonus.
