    Pros

    Leadership here really does care about what's best for the people, and does its best to ensure a great fit for everyone. The internal side definitely feels more like the culture described in the press than the practice side does, and the company goes to great lengths to create inclusive events that celebrate success.

    Cons

    The practice side can be brutal in terms of hours expectations, and even the internal side is still very focused on hours. Ideas for doing things newly are not always well-received, or are not paid attention to soon enough, and there's not a lot of innovation in people management.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that efficiency does not always lead to less profit, and focus more on results than how long it takes to get there.

    I have been working at Plante Moran full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people I work with in the DTC office are wonderful. The company has great benefits ($0 premiums for the high deductible insurance plan, and unlimited time off!)

    Cons

    You have unlimited time off, but you must hit your required charge hours which equates to ~3 weeks of vacation. When I first started the required hours for busy season were around 55 hours a week. Three years in and now the hours have bumped up to 65 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Don't become like the big 4. Hours have increased and there is more of culture pressuring you to hit high hours each week.

    Pros

    The people - the vast majority of people who work at Plante Moran care about you as a person and do not treat you like just another cog in a machine.
    There is typically good transparency throughout the company. Sometimes you have to ask; but if you ask for the information, you will get it.
    Work-life balance is fantastic. (It will heavily depend on the team you are on, but it is a priority for many individuals and there is an emphasis to try to accommodate each individual's needs as much as possible.)

    Cons

    401(k) match is pretty low.
    As with many larger companies, there are metrics that individuals are measured against, based on their roles. Sometimes the metrics may not accurately summarize an individuals' achievements and accomplishments.
