    I have been working at Windham Brannon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management team is down to earth and very relateable. Tone at the top is amazing. Great clients to work for. Work is challenging and rewarding. Constantly learning something new. Co-workers are excellent.

    Cons

    Work during the summer can get repetitive and boring. Evaluations are not always accurate or indicative of your perfomance, rather personal opinions are more prevalent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Recognize those below you are working hard to make you money too!

    "Beware of the management group (partners and shareholders)"

    Pros

    Very professional, pleasant surroundings and a fantastic staff with great attitude. Dinner provided several days a week during busy season. Convenient location. Quality of work produced is excellent. The benefits, pay, and culture were great. Other staff level employees were always willing to help, and "mentor" was there to assist in your growth.
    Exciting about the recent merger and an excellent opportunity to grow.

    Cons

    The management group plays to favorites. Promotions are not based on performance reviews.
    Many staff complains about "favoritism"

    Communications skills of the management group is severely lacking and often disrespectful.
    Female partners are worse than the male partners.
    Definitely not a "lead by example" attitude carried by the management group.
    Although an open door policy is touted, frequently the first statement from management is that they are limited on time for questions/discussions as some partners are nonresponsive to emails and VMs until it's the last minute and/or time sensitive - poor management showing by the management group.

    Some partners are stubborn to changes.
    Performance reviews need to be improved.

    Advice to Management

    How do expect staff to follow when you can’t even lead by example.
    Many staff could benefit from your willingness to change.
    You have an excellent staff working for you. Don’t lose them due to your stubbornness to change for the better.

    Communication between partners and staff needs a major overhaul.

    Promotions should be based upon overall skill set, and not personality.

    I have been working at Windham Brannon full-time

    Pros

    WB has a close-knit family feel. The people are a fantastic aspect of working here. There are many benefits such as a free fitness facility, covered parking, flexible hours, and generous PTO. The firm is very family friendly. They have a strong open-door policy. The HR department is also very kind and caring, unlike at many other places.

    Cons

    Long work hours. But that is typical of a CPA firm.
