    I have been working at Plante Moran full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People here are extremely nice. They do a lot of training.

    Cons

    Low wages, poor culture. More interested in giving negative reviews than promoting positive reviews. Too many reviews and internal administration that gets in the way of getting your job done. A lot of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Ask people from different departments or areas to talk to others about their concerns to get a better insight into making a better place to work. Utilize time to get work done instead of all the time spent doing reviews and constantly loading staff with work overload. Figure out why there is so many people are leaving the company.

    Pros

    Best is 4 weeks vacation when you start. Also hours are decent when not at busy season and there's a lot of flexibility.

    Cons

    Busy season is difficult but that's with all accounting firms. Compensation is not great either compared to the expected work hours

    Advice to Management

    Compensate your employees what they are worth, especially since they are the ones putting in long hours and working in evenings

    Pros

    The coworkers are what make this place a great place to work. Management is just like any other management, not a lot of transparency.

    Cons

    The benefits are subpar. No paternity leave, healthcare is expensive, lower than average 401k match. Can be very high stress at times.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, investment in employees, free meals on Saturday's during tax season, admin support day was wonderfully recognized

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for support staff. Able to expand knowledge but not advance. Outreach programs were difficult to engage staff unless the managing partner was in attendance at certain events.

    Advice to Management

    More all office functions that encourage getting to know other departments
