    Pros

    "Cool" accounting firm - if that makes sense

    Big time reputation in alternative investments with a small firm feel. Great training to start.

    Upper management is real down to earth and approachable.

    Cons

    Morale could have been handled better.

    Did not want to treat firm like a Big 4, which is fine, however, would have been better to get rewarded for out performing peers than getting thrown into a general pool. People are too nice during reviews and marginal performers get as good treatment as top performers.

    Advice to Management

    Should not have lied about the impending sale to KPMG.

    Should try to retain talent better. Having a policy about no counter offers will only make people walk out the door quicker.

    Pros

    Firm really tried to develop staff as professionals through training and seminars. They had a really solid training program.

    Cons

    Sold out to the man. Total boys club. Way too many corporate responsibilities and obligations without consideration of the client service workload.
