      Forward Thinking Firm

      Pros

      I enjoy my job at Wipfli. They are a very forward thinking firm and are constantly working on re-inventing themselves. Wipfli is growing really fast, so there are tons of opportunities for new leaders to join the firm and grow within the firm. They also invest in people with great internal trainings on leading with an outward mindset and internal trainings on personnel development, management, business development, etc. Depending on where you land, there are tools and support available to help you succeed. Also, senior leadership is very open. The senior leaders in the market and in the firm have an open door policy and are excited to hear from the next generation of leaders. This is incredibly important for the success of the firm and is much appreciated! In response to COVID, the firm prioritized its employees health and went remote right away. Throughout the next few months the managing partner had weekly, bi-weekly, monthly calls with the entire firm to update us on decisions the leaders in the firm were making. To this day they are allowing employees to work from home and are completing regular 'pulse surveys' to see how employees are doing. Receiving the leadership updates, was incredibly helpful and much appreciated.

      Cons

      - Public Accounting is hard, the hours are longer and it can be overwhelming. This is true for any public accounting firm

      Pros

      FTO replaced PTO. No accruals, you just take off. When they have a good year, employees are rewarded. This year everyone got a bonus and some got extra raises. Challenging work keeps you from getting bored.

      Cons

      Lots of hours during busy season but you can request an AWA after you put in a little time.

      A culture that lives its values

      Pros

      Wipfli has been a great place to call my professional home. People treat each other with respect, and curiosity is rewarded. Diversity and inclusion is a key part of our culture, and leadership truly cares about our people and the impact we make upon the world. There is a warm and inviting culture here.

      Cons

      We're a growing firm, and we experience some of the same challenges most firms do in terms of keeping up with technology and talent, but I'd call Wipfli ahead of the curve.

      Ton of turnover now & not able to find replacements - ton of work gets piled on now

      Mar 5, 2021 - Accountant in Chicago, IL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      It is flexible; however due to mass turnover during covid, not able to find replacements means more work dumped on the rest of us still standing so the extra hours have been a drag. There's a lot of different opportunities so you won't get bored. CEO is a good guy.

      Cons

      Apparently not listening to current and departing associates because there's been a mass exit and the rest of us get dumped on. Many still standing getting contacted by other firms, employers and headhunters. While we need the client work to keep the lights on, at what point is the firm going figure out a way to not burn out those still standing. This is not a sustainable work model. Benefits are sub par & in line w/ other firms. They now offer flexible time off but pretty hard to get time off when continually getting buried w/ more client work from those who have departed and not making the incentives good enough for candidates to come to us.
