    Pros

    Amazing place to work and for career growth. Leadership support for career growth is of employees and clients is what this firm is all about.

    Cons

    Typical CPA firm things. Some partners/principles have old school attitudes and can hurt the overall culture. Upper promotion (principle/partner) goals are not consistent on how to make it.

    I worked at UHY LLP full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You are paid well for your work - if you live in the Detroit area. They don’t understand that certain cities are more costly that the C&D tier cities the firm has offices at throughout the country (Detroit, Atlanta and St Louis).

    Cons

    They continue to loose profit and market share due to lagging vision and quality management. If you are in sales - leadership DOESN’T know what a CRM is or what it does. You can meet and exceed your targets and you are still let go due to the firm’s lack of core business. I love how these “Accounting Firms” have a focus on everything BUT quality accounting, tax and attest work. Now they have cyber security teams,...

    Pros

    Significant growth in recent years = stability. Really nice and friendly people to work with across the board.

    Cons

    Because the firm was built on the merging of a number of regional firms, regions tend to operate differently, so it doesn't always feel like a national firm.

    I have been working at UHY LLP full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The office itself has a nice appearance to it, lots of space and light. The work itself is interesting, and at least you're never bored during tax season.

    Cons

    Instruction on how to perform tasks is always minimal at best. I was told to ask for help anytime, but staffers and higher-ups often get an attitude when I take them up on it. Tracey Powell, a principal at UHY, is especially cold and condescending when I try to go to her for advice.

    Advice to Management

    Don't tell associates that your door is always open, then cop an attitude with them when they go to you for help.

    Pros

    Made some wonderful lifelong friends! It was the people that kept me there as long as I was. If you can become a part of the right team you will enjoy most days. I actually enjoyed the work I was doing and the ability to help and partner with others.

    Cons

    Leadership, management, opportunity, values and mission are non existent. If they do exist, very few will embrace and share them. - there are some pretty prejudice and racist decision makers, the good people frown upon it but it does still go on (even within hiring ) - will boast it is a national firm but everything is silod and their is no drive to create a national firm with process and procedures that create efficiency...

    I have been working at UHY LLP full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Office Location. Did I say office location?

    Cons

    Surprisingly weak office and Firm leadership. Little to no communication of strategy and direction. Little team effort in a broader sense. No sense of one firm - several small groups doing their own thing. Firm is completely unknown in the local market place. Efforts are not properly rewarded or recognized. The figurative right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership counts!
