    I have been working at The Siegfried Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Great culture -Great base pay -Incentives are high (I've made more in bonuses in 8 months than 3 combined years in public accounting) -Clients are mostly fortune 1000 companies -Work out/well being stipend -Networking stipend -Tons of opportunity for growth within the resource ranks and the company internally -Opportunity to travel if you want to

    Cons

    -Most of the cons are matched with an incentive (hours could be 50+ but you are compensated for higher weekly billable hours worked)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be upfront and transparent with professional resources working in the field. This job has been everything that I was told in my interview process. The accounting work, incentives, and everything else has been spot on from what the Market Leaders told me in my interview process.

    I worked at The Siegfried Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Onboarding process is good, and the company is setup for success...

    Cons

    I decided to leave as there are countless stories from within the professional body around nightmare horror stories of poor clients and professionals being left out in the cold with no support. Its not an environment that supports the resources and I myself witnessed a lot of lying from the head of my market as to next clients I'd work on.

    Advice to Management

    Live up to the ideals mentioned in orientation

  7. "Great place if you are junior level"

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at The Siegfried Group full-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      Great business model to work on different project if you are hired as senior or you would like to work overtime or travel to earn incentive.

      Cons

      A lot of extra work internally to get exceed expectations and the project is not always you wanted, it really depends on the luck and relationship with the leadership.

      Pros

      - Love the emphasis the firm places on my development; they are genuinely interested in seeing me grow as a professional and especially a person. Really encourage you to become your best self, it's amazing - The firm's investment in ME is unparalleled to anywhere I've seen before (and surpasses programs offered by client companies in my market (SF, CA)) - Lots of room for growth in the company and many paths to leadership...

      Cons

      - Deductible for benefits is somewhat high (~ $1300 for the year) - Firm could practice more vacation days for more federal holidays (ie MLK Day) that clients offer - but all major holidays are observed - I really do love working at TSG, but the firm can be kind of pushy to make you share your story with others (strong desire to continue growing, so strong emphasis on recruiting others into the firm) - like I said,...

      I worked at The Siegfried Group full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      With qualifications*: 1. Slightly above market pay for minimal level of effort type of work. Can be idle/unassigned for months, great being paid to do nothing at home at the cost of gaining no experience. Pay for a senior accountant would be roughly 5%~10% higher than a senior accountant in industry depending on size of client however in some cases lower than F500 senior accountants. Qualification: *Initial recruitment...

      Cons

      Do not let management fool you by comparing Siegfried work/life to audit work/life, this is not an apples to apples comparison. The job is very close to an industry job, but the firm operates similar to a temp placement company contracted for projects. This opportunity should be compared to industry jobs and industry compensation. 1. Poor reputation among people from all levels of the big 4 that have worked with Siegfried...

      Advice to Management

      More and genuine PRD's Re-evaluate structure of firm to remove ineffective made up leadership roles More home grown directors that have worked as a resource.

      Pros

      Through the My Journey program, the company trains employees holistically and mandates self-reflection and evaluation of our own personal long-term goals. We’re encouraged to think broadly about our own wellbeing and lifelong objectives by setting goals in areas such as the Physical, Intellectual and Spiritual facets of our lives. This program is embedded in the company’s culture and truly sets it apart from anything...

      Cons

      The work hours can be long especially when combined with after-hours events and travel. For me personally, I enjoy working, love travelling and enjoy the variety that the professional resource role brings. However, if you’re looking for a “9-5 job” you should probably look elsewhere.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you’re doing; we’ve got something great here.
