    I have been working at Weaver full-time

    Pros

    Weaver has wonderful employees, my co-workers are all intelligent, helpful, hard working people.

    The people working above you actually want to help you learn. The seniors/managers/partners I've had the opportunity to work with have all been excellent about taking the time to make sure I understand what's going on, what I'm doing, and why I'm doing it.

    You get a wide range of experience. I've worked on jobs in multiple industries and I've had the chance to work on all pieces of an audit. This has exposed me to a lot of different learning opportunities.

    Upward mobility is very much a reality here. They expose you to multiple industries and make you take on additional responsibilities all for the purpose of moving you up. If you perform well, people are typically promoted each year.

    More personal time than at other firms, particularly the Big 4. Our hours tend to be pretty flexible depending on the job your on and the season it is and we definitely work less than the Big 4 does.

    Cons

    There tends to be a culture of gossip. People will talk about you, so don't say anything to anyone that you wouldn't want to say to a partner.

    The hours. In audit it's typically expected that you have one serious busy season and then the work kind of tapers off and the rest of the year isn't really BUSY, however, Weaver is currently going through some changes (particularly the Houston office) and it has led to many people having to work multiple busy seasons. People who have been here longer than me have said they feel as though we're starting to become more like Big 4 in that aspect.

    To build on the above con, people will guilt you. While the friendly family like culture is VERY inviting and one of the main reasons I stay, it also lets your supervisors and management feel entitled to play on that bond to get more work out of you.

    The benefits. Management has made it clear they believe that our benefits are fine how they are. While the vision and dental are pretty decent, the health insurance is awful and the 401k matching is a drag, too.

    The pay. Management has also made it clear that they believe we're being paid on par with market value. Based on my research for the city of Houston, specifically, we are not paid what the market calls for. I have a feeling the pay was more appropriate before the company growth and increase in work.

    Advice to Management

    Nurture the culture that already exists. Weaver has a very family feel to it, y'all need to work on building on to that culture. You need to create more FUN opportunities for people to get to know one another.

    Talk to your employees. The way business is currently conducted makes lower level employees hesitant to discuss issues they're facing in the workplace. Sending out surveys every 2 or 3 months isn't cutting it. You need to have actual discussions with actual people.

    Show appreciation. Whether that be through better benefits, increases in pay, bonuses, weaver reward points, letting your employees go early for the day, taking them out to eat, or even just a simple thank you. Management needs to do a MUCH better job of showing appreciation to the employees. (We all know it's a job, but when we sacrifice time with our loved ones to make the company money it'd be nice to know you recognize and appreciate that sacrifice.)
