    Pros

    Snacks in the office. Lots of business coming into the firm.

    I worked at Whitley Penn full-time

    Pros

    Many chances to get to know fellow auditors within the company and around the city. Partners easily accessible for questions and/or guidance. Senior Auditors seem to want to see you do well (most).

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be a bit straining at times depending on where you are reporting to week by week. Some times reviews can be a bit slow and all come in at once, which can be overwhelming and can limit your time to improve.

    I have been working at Whitley Penn full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Company culture, relatively flexible work schedule as long as you complete your tasks. If you're going to stay in public accounting, this is a great firm to do it at.

    Cons

    There's no maternity leave and some of the managers are difficult to work with in certain industry segments.

    Advice to Management

    Implement policies that place value on the employee over the bottom line. Policies and benefits aimed purely at retention and being competitive for hiring/recruiting are thinly veiled bribes that still do not show appreciation for the busy season hours & demanding clients.
