    Pros

    It had great benefits and a great workplace environment. It also had a good work/life balance. And it paid overtime.

    Cons

    Being bought out by KPMG. Bye bye mid-size perks. Also, inter-office work teams and interactions were not nearly as efficient as working with team members located in one's local office.

    Advice to Management

    Wish you wouldn't have sold the firm. We were doing so well.

    Pros

    Rothstein Kass has a great culture and intelligent individuals working for the firm. Only people who have anything negative to say are those who got let go because they were below average.

    Cons

    As with any accounting firm, the hours are no fun. It's doable, you just have to want it. If you don't, private is the way to go

    Advice to Management

    Management has improved over time. I think they try and lsiten to the lower-level staff, but they never adhere to comments or suggestions as much as they want.

    -One fair Partner who is very proactive and listens to the needs of his employees
    -The job is simple and can be done efficiently with all the resources available when you work with managers whose interests support the firm interests as a whole.

    Cons

    -The system always freezes and IT blames it all on the server and there's just 'nothing' that can be done.
    -Some members of management believes in only ONE way to audit
    -Personal preferences affect the evaluation process
    -Very detailed that Supervising Seniors miss the big picture of the audit because they focus too much on the neatness and uniformity of workpaper documentation

    Advice to Management

    The world of auditing is diverse and it continuously evolves so efficiency is key to more competitive bidding and winning proposals. Your traditional ways are in no way contributing to your efforts of being efficient. Educate your managers and supervising seniors who are afraid come out of their comfort zones and accept other audit methodologies that encourage efficiency.
