    I have been working at Whitley Penn full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here. Management does not do anything. They just push their work down to the senior and email them daily about getting it done while they leave early during busy season.

    Cons

    Extremely long hour that make the pay not worth it. Retail employees make more per hour. Managers make it tough for talent to stay, leading to high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture from a sweatshop with high turnover.

    Pros

    Great culture, good benefits, and progressive firm. Colleagues are awesome and very smart

    Cons

    Though the company has a great culture, some department leaders make it tough for talent to stay or wanting to learn - leading to high turnover. The intellectual growth starts stagnating as work becomes repetitive with the same procedures and no new skill is learned.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee developments not just client engagements

    Pros

    Managers and partners are always available to answer questions when needed. Another pro is that you are able to learn a variety of things related to accounting.

    Cons

    This is definitely a high school setting. Managers and partners definitely confirm this by playing favorites . They are quick to give a bad review after you voice your opinions to them about how things are done.

    Advice to Management

    The job itself is difficult. Help and LISTEN to your employees more.
