    I have been working at Tax Management Associates full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They believe family is first.
    It's not a huge corporation, so most of the employees are like family because they have worked together for so long.
    It's a great work environment, they supply you with everything you need to do your job, and then some.
    Most employees have been with the company a long time. That means a lot to me.
    They have great benefits.
    They are good to their employees.
    Good amount of vacation time. And holidays.

    Cons

    IT could benefit from knowing what each department does and needs on a daily basis. Priority is not always thought of. This slows production.
    There is a lot of clock watching by managers. Considering we are salary, I don't feel the need to scrutinize each minute of each day.
    Not a lot of room for advancement within, due to "it's all in who you know" and favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. When things are hidden from certain employees, but others know, it's like high school all over again. Too many family members hired to work in the same departments or overall in the company. A lot of favoritism goes on. The work and people are great for the most part. Some of the managers are in different states/offices; therefore, should not manage the employees they do not directly see on a day to day basis. Benefits are good, insurance is as well.

    Pros

    Nice, laid back office environment. Great office location manager. If you learn everything you can about PPT, you'll be better at your job.

    Cons

    Limited growth. Office culture was more gossip then most will find preferable.

    Pros

    Generous paid holidays, pretty good benefits and some stability. Pleasant co workers.

    Cons

    Mgt is arrogant, unapproachable, training is minimal, no team or corporate culture. Upper Mgt takes no interest or time with employees. Middle mgt has no authority or training on how to manage people.

    Advice to Management

    Need to listen to employees provide more pleasant work environment, improve training, communication and have a company mission statement.

    Pros

    -Its a Job

    -The job title looks good on a resume

    - Small company

    -Great for anyone that has an interest in customer service via telephone, or online chat.

    Cons

    - No Room for growth

    -Emplyoees only get paid Once a month

    -Management does not have any real knowledge about tax

    - This is more of a call center than a tax firm.

    Advice to Management

    Do a little more to promote growth because the more the company grows the more money management will make.

    keep the good ol Boy system going. It works!

    Pros

    The attitude to train is satisfactory.

    The execution of training is poor. They have you follow one of their experienced auditors twice and then you're on your own

    Advice to Management

    Create a curriculum of laws
