    Pros

    Phenomenal people who take integrity and client service to heart!
    Dynamic growth and opportunity for self paced career experience

    Cons

    Mergers have created a much bigger firm and while that comes with a larger client base and talent pool, the integration takes a while to be effective. We are coming out of that now and ready for success!

    Advice to Management

    Keep balancing the needs of our clients and associate's. Continue emphasizing the THRIVE culture.

    Pros

    Wipfli has people that are amazing to work with. They have a culture that encourages transfer of knowledge and helping people achieve goals, as well as just making Wipfli a fun place to go to work everyday. The work is both challenging and rewarding and Wipfli helps you achieve your career goals by letting you choose your career path based on your experience, expertise, and interest that mutually benefits you as the firm.

    Cons

    I haven't experience many cons while working at Wipfli. One area that could use improvement is our approach to campus recruiting as I think we could do a better job being more visible to prospective student candidates and I believe we need to be on universities. Also, I think at times we are still perfecting then one firm concept as some of the ways we do things can vary from office to office.

    Advice to Management

    Continue perfecting the one firm concept, increase campus awareness, and I think there is room for expansion and purchase other firms in new regions to expand this great firm.
