    I have been working at Sikich full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been with the firm almost a year and I have no complaints. The helped with cost to relocate me and they have continued to take excellent care of me. They follow through on promises and have great culture. They have a nice balance between being professional and laid back. They are very reasonable people, and if you do your job, they'll take care of you.

    Cons

    The 401k match is only 50% of your contributions (up to 4% of salary) and there is no student loan reimbursement program. These are my only complaints so far.

    Advice to Management

    Add a student loan reimbursement program.

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

    Pros

    Awesome work culture, flexibility in schedule, and everyone is SO willing to answer questions. You can ask anyone questions, from staff to partners. The people here make you love coming to work everyday, which I never thought was possible. I've worked at Sikich nearly 3 years and haven't regretted my decision to work for a mid-size firm compared to a "Big Four" firm.

    Cons

    Akron office is outdated, BUT a new office is being built and will be move-in ready by January 2017.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for management. They do a great job keeping their employees happy. Keep doing what you're doing!

    I worked at Sikich full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In my experience, there was a positive vibe at Sikich. They have brought in some talented partners and consultants. We were able to provide a ton of different business services which helped me get a foot in the door as a salesman.

    Cons

    In my division (Tech) there was uncertainty about what we could do and how we could deliver things.

    Advice to Management

    Keep bringing in the right people. Everything else will take care of itself.

    I have been working at Sikich full-time

    Pros

    I have been trying to look for a job where I feel like I fit in and I get the flexibility and no micro management. Its been an year since I started working and this is the first job where I am motivated coz I want to work not coz someone wants me to complete work by certain date and time.
    I like the team and the working atmosphere here.

    Cons

    No place is ideal. There are always pros and cons. I agree with others, that health insurance is not something you want from Sikich. Also, its still accounting based even though Sikich has spread wings into Technology. A lot of traditions and methodologies, time entry, profit-sharing and bonus structure that applies to accounting is followed by Technology teams. Which definitely needs to change as employee motivation goes down a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that technology teams work differently and should be set up separate from Accounting
