    I have been working at Squar Milner full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been with the company a little over two years and I can see how fast the company is growing and expending. The People are very friendly and professional. The annual trip after busy season is huge deal as you get to know people outside work field.

    Cons

    Work life balance which normal for public companies.

    Advice to Management

    Consider better 401K match

    I have been working at Squar Milner full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Each year the company throws a Firm Trip around May for an after busy season celebration.

    Cons

    Since they’ve grown through mergers and acquisitions the company structure and support is shaky at best. Processes between different offices vary and nothing is standardized. The HR Manager/CFO hires her family and doesn’t take into consideration the actual people that will be affected as long as she “wins”. Management is money centered and expenses for reimbursement are constantly rejected. Company is stickler for “the...

      I have been working at Squar Milner full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      There are some good managers and some mad as with everywhere you work. Work hours are tough, but manageable during busy season.

      Cons

      Would like to see a much bigger increase in 401k match from 500 to several thousand. Would also like to see a much bigger increase in PTO time.

      I have been working at Squar Milner full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      1. Rapid growth - the firm has grown every year since I've been here, and according to the Partners and Managers, the firm is looking to grow more. 2. Exposure to Partners - No archaic caste system here, you will work and learn from partners with 30+ years of experience in your first year. 3. Travel opportunities - for a regional Southern California firm, there an impressive amount of international and domestic work...

      Cons

      1. Like any job you take, the cultural fit can be luck of the draw. I consider myself fortunate to work for Managers and Partners who I fit well with, but for some of my former co-workers, the fit was not as great. This can make or break your experience at the firm, as you will spend a large amount of time working in teams, and if you don't get along with your team members, it can be tough. 2. Large amount of autonomy...

      I have been working at Squar Milner full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Plenty of growth opportunities (both in $$ and personal development). There are lots of interesting jobs, and the managers/partners generally listen to you when you ask to be put on a specific type of engagement that is interesting to you. The quality of work the audit practice does is pretty high, and Squar Milner is pretty well known in the So-Cal region. The pay and benefits are pretty competitive to other CPA firms,...

      Cons

      The annual bonus is based off billable hours, and some engagements have very small budgets, so it is sometimes difficult to meet the billable hour targets.

      Advice to Management

      Keep listening to employees and trying to improve. Take a look at the bonus structure, and see how it stacks up to other firms in the industry.

        Pros

        A very diversed firm, a room to learn a lot from people from different backgrounds, supportive team, you are a person not a number, you get recognized for your achievements, most importantly they recognize talent even in people with international backgrounds and they give a chance and give a reasonably good compensation for it and do not take advantage of your situation. (My personal experience). Not to forget firm dinners!...

        Cons

        Not enough space in the office for a growing firm.
