    Pros

    UHY provides a great working atmosphere. Everyone from Partners down are all very friendly and really make their staff feel appreciated. Employees are very well compensated through salary and bonuses. Overall it's a great place to work.

    Cons

    It's public accounting which can create long hours. You have to input time on a very detailed level which can be quite tedious.

    Pros

    UHY is a great place to work. There are opportunities everywhere for personal growth. UHY provides the best of two worlds in the public accounting arena. Its mid-market position gives you the opportunity to work on large projects/ companies which helps to gain high level experience while the working environment is like that of a smaller firm. Staff have chances to work directly with partners. Partner's doors are alway open.

    Cons

    As with most public accounting firms, there are long hours. Busy times are busy and a lot of hours are required. But there is down time as well. Management is very understanding of staff taking time off during down time.

    Pros

    Good place to learn the business, but then again, so is any regionally large CPA firm.

    Cons

    The current business model doesn't seem to be earning the firm any new business, The theme for the Boston office in '08 is "Hire'em then Fire'em"

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire a whole slew of people on a loose plan to obtain new business, then just to lay them off 6 months later.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for UHY Advisors include the fact that as a new staff accountant, you are provided with a lot of education in both audit and tax.

    Cons

    The downside at UHY Advisors are definitely the long hours, lack of work/life balance and senior management is not the easiest to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better work/life balance and respect the people below you.

    Pros

    The only good thing about working for the Company was that I learned a tremendous amount; however, I believe I would have gained the same experience working for any other middle market firm in the area.

    Cons

    The management at UHY does not treat its employees very fairly. Also, the Human Resources department is not on the side of the employees but instead on the side of management. Employees felt they could come to the HR department if there were issues; however, instead they were either terminated or their "confidential" discussions were discussed with other employees such as administrative staff. The Company touts that they are a national firm; however, each firm does things very differently. The management of the firm makes you feel like you are replaceable and very rarely gives compliments. They have a tendency to keep employees around for very long periods of time who haven't completed the CPA exam (i.e. employees who have been there for 8 to 9 years without passing the exam).

    Advice to Management

    My advice to senior management would be that they need to appreciate the staff that puts forth all of the effort and reaps none of the rewards. They need to treat people with a little more kindness and leave their egos at the door because it should be a team environment. Until these things are changed, they will continue to experience immense turnover and their reputation in the community will continue to deteriorate.
