    I worked at Wiss & Company full-time

    Pros

    Great company culture with unlimited PTO. Good first job out of college to start your accounting career and gain a lot of hands on experience.

    Cons

    No bonuses. Office can be a bit cliquey. Too many clients on an employees' plate at times, while other employees' do not have work to do; work needs to be divided more evenly.

    I worked at Wiss & Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I started my career at Wiss & Company and the experience was a great launchpad to the rest of my career. I made lifelong friends there and got experience auditing every aspect of companies that made me understand the inner-workings of businesses and management. They had an incredibly generous PTO and benefit package, the environment was collegial and friendly and they cared about more than just work. They cared about our growth and us as people.

    Cons

    When I was there I didn't get to work with NYC clients but it seems since I left they have greatly expanded into New York and young auditors can now get access to those big city clients.

    I worked at Wiss & Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO and casual dress code. Are trying to figure out what direction public accounting of the future will be for regional firms and making strides to get ahead of other firms. Low turnover compared to many other firms.

    Cons

    Politics, no bonuses, long hours, and cliquish. The pay is based on an algorithm that takes into account all NJ firms and adds NYC. This determines what everyone in the firm gets for a particular position, so if you are a staff living in NYC you will get the same pay as someone living in a cheap area of NJ.

    Advice to Management

    Expand NYC more and get rid of the people causing gossip and issues.

    Pros

    People are very friendly and are willing to help you at especially at an entry-level
    Unlimited PTO and decent benefits

    Cons

    Many people are let go every summer. What they do is hire a good amount of candidates every fall right before the busy season. Then once busy season is over, upper management lets go 4-5 people and blame it on " low turnover" and "overstaffing". No warning what so ever. This place won't last long, they are losing money as it is.
