    Pros

    Great training includes national out of town training and local on line training. Fantastic tax management group. Low level of overtime when compared to regional and national firms.

    Cons

    Partners push tax professionals to grow on a steady basis. This is not a place you go to relax. The pace is "elite" and so is the work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to retain top professionals.

    I have been working at Templeton & Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Other than the view, there are no pros

    Cons

    Partners/Managers think they are on top of the world. They dont treat staff like humans. No clear path on how things they are done. Extremely unorganized and expect staff to just get everything. No communications will be made to staff, you might know the day of or day before. I would never recommend this job to anyone. You will be more happy working in a fast food establishment

    Advice to Management

    Change your ways to treat employee. Stop making it sound like you care about them and actually start proving yourselves

    I have been working at Templeton & Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are some really good, smart people working here. However, they don't get the respect they deserve. The office is nice.

    Cons

    Senior management acts like staff are servants there to make them money, and are treated as if they are disposable. Management makes decisions that make no business sense. Managers are never reprimanded for being rude or disrespectful to staff. If you aren't family, your opinion means squat.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that you have intelligent, educated people working for you.

    Pros

    Nice views of the city

    Cons

    They have no formal training of how they want things done. Management would figure it out as they went along and would fault you because you didn't know what they were doing

    Advice to Management

    Organized workflow helps

    Pros

    A culture of caring - they really care about their employees and their families
    Ideal for someone with entrepreneurial spirit and energy
    Client list rivals that of top firms in South Florida
    Recently invested a lot of capital on internal infrastructure, including cutting edge software systems, HR manager, and other perks smaller firms dont provide

    Cons

    Departmental organization
    Sometimes expectations are unclear, including guidelines for advancement opportunities

    Pros

    Great place to work
    Good corporate culture
    Balanced pay and benefit plans
    Ability to grow and move up within the firm

    Cons

    Company is family owned and bias is shown to individuals within the family.
    Lack of focus amongst department managers in working together to reach a common goal.

    Advice to Management

    I believe they have the right goals and understanding of public accounting that if they took time to align the goals of the firm and made them acceptable to all managers the firm would have no limits.
