    I worked at Yeo & Yeo (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There seemed to be an atmosphere that fostered teamwork. There was also alot of opportunities for great training. The firm invested in the skills of the staff.

    Cons

    The ride was a little longer having to drive out to Ann Arbor, for our office, instead of the Southgate office, where we moved from. I think it would have still been a good asset to maintain a physical presence in the Downriver area. Just a thought.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the intangibles of the staff that you have. Sometimes, the intangibles do not present themselves as immediate positive dollar signs. But those intangibles may be key components to helping to maintain the positive culture of the overall firm that drives it forward.


  2. "Computer Consulting"

    I worked at Yeo & Yeo full-time

    Pros

    Most employees were bright with high integrity and nice to work with. Tw o stars for good employees.

    Cons

    Environment is old school. Tech employees, who were micro managed, seem to be more fearful for their jobs than the rest of the firm. Young tech employees recruited from college were worked extensively with little flexibility for finishing school.

    Advice to Management

    If tech employees are viewed as a commodity, and it is working, then there is no advice. If the firm is looking to grow in the computer consulting area, advice is new leadership.

    I have been working at Yeo & Yeo full-time

    Pros

    One of Yeo & Yeo's core values is to maintain a family focused work environment. The firm goes above and beyond to ensure this is the case for everyone. They offer the capability to "bank" your overtime hours to use as you please, which really helps when you are seeking additional time off.

    Cons

    Change has been slow in the past, but more recently, the firm is making great strides in updating its policies, work environment, technology and improving communication across all offices.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to seek innovative ways to grow and be a firm that is attractive to upcoming generations.

    I appreciate the positive comments. How often do we hear on the news that less than 50% of Americans like their job? Our goal is for our professionals to love their job.

    I have been working at Yeo & Yeo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Overall great benefits, pay, and vacation time. Firm really focuses on putting clients first and serving them in the best way they can. They also highly stress community involvement with different non-profits or organizations, which is great. They have employee development inside the firm and they are open to self-development trainings outside the firm as well. Co-workers are willing to train new employees and are good at making them feel welcome and including them in events.The partners are not just on a partner to partner communicating level, but a partner to staff communicating level as well. They have created a great open door policy and actually stick to it. Vacation time is generous for starting staff and they are generally pretty flexible with you taking time off.

    Cons

    Work hours can get long during the busy season - which is typical of any accounting firm during tax or audit seasons. However, you are able to bank or get paid out for any overtime hours, which makes for a great incentive.

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

    Pros

    Each office is different, but in general, very collegial environment among young staff and senior accountants. HR (mostly done by one person) is good, but not empowered to make real change within the organization.

    Cons

    The typical complaints of CPA firms (busy season hours, tedious work, etc.). On top of it, the leadership of this firm seems to be a bit "old school" in terms of management style. More innovative and progressive principals are silenced and instead the "old boys club" perpetuates a culture of 1970s management. This is clear even upon comparing the company website to that of other firms; much is lacking, even for a firm its size. Workplace culture is huge, so this can be a big problem; there's a major problem with cultural competence and dealing with people who are not white, Christian/Catholic, heterosexual, etc. among employees and clients.

    Advice to Management

    Look into new and innovative ways to address the problems common among public accounting. Pursue gender equality in pay, provide mandatory diversity training, develop affinity groups, formalize the mentoring program, take proactive steps toward addressing valid employee complaints/suggestions, change evaluation system from top-down exclusively to also bottom-up evaluations (e.g., let employees evaluate principals and give credence to their evaluations). Generally, much can be done to enter the 21st century and improve the work climate.

    I have been working at Yeo & Yeo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are extremely good and are provided at minimal premiums. The company recognizes talent and the Partners are encouraging to pursue further education and certification. The firm places great emphasis on a work-life balance and is very family oriented. Co-workers make sure to include you in events and make you feel welcomed from day one. Overtime hours are allowed and may either be banked or paid at your respective wage rate which is very hard to find in the accounting profession and is a major perk.

    Cons

    Tax season hours are typical for any accounting firm, but the firm balances this with an excellent policy regarding overtime hours worked.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on family orientation while growing and expanding the firm.
