Extremely impressed - SJ Audit Associate

5.0 of 5 stars

December 2017 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Kind people, relaxed and respectful environment, quality of life in and out of work, elite compensation & multitude of opportunities for professional growth.

Downers

None that I noticed so far. Only a month in to my role though.

Comments

I slightly doubted the selling points that were given to me when I interviewed. I believed they were a bit too good to be true. All of them were true. I received many offers from PA firms after graduating, Friedman was the smallest firm in terms of Vault's "Prestige" ranking. But I made the decision with my gut and not my brain and after working here, I know I'll never trust my brain over my gut again. Friedman LLP is arguably the best Public Accounting firm to work for in the US if you don't want to work in public for 2 years and jump ship to industry. Here you're afforded the diversity of work that you need to stimulate yourself intellectually, and the reasonableness and flexibility that comes along with the cushiest industry job. Plus the people are pretty cool too.

Good public accounting firm

4.0 of 5 stars

October 2017 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Nice bunch of smart people, good workplace culture and quality of life is above par for public accounting firms. Flexible work hours and dress for your day. Open door policy with managers and HR.

Downers

Busy season hours which is normal for public accounting. To some degree there is favoritism and there are workplace cliques.

Comments

The company appreciates self-starters, confident and motivated people with positive attitudes.

tremendous opportunity with industry leading clients

Mid-level in Audit & Assurance | New York, NY | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

The firm truly values and respects it employees and is in constant motion to facilitate success for both the firm and its employees. Great personal/work life balance, solid fringe benefits program and competitive salaries and career development.

Downers

While nothing is perfect, I do not have anything negative to add. Management is very aware of weaknesses because of its open communication policy and any current weaknesses are currently being addressed.

Comments

Partners, managers and employees at all levels are very approachable here at Friedman. It truly is a great environment and a nice and very smart group of people to work with. There is no question that there is great potential for personal and professional growth at Friedman. You have the opportunity to be "more visible" and shine at a mid-size firm as compared to the Big-4. While Friedman is not considered part of the traditional Big-4, if you can allow yourself to look beyond that, you will find that prestige can be found within the types of relationships a firm has with its employees, clients and community. This is an excellent firm to start your career in or transition to mid-career. The firm has a very high retention rate and with its competitive packages, it's in an elite league that I do not feel the larger firms can compete against.
