About Plante Moran

Plante Moran is looking for hardworking, motivated, personable candidates who excel in school and have bright personalities. The firm's internship program provides students with hands-on experience, allowing them to learn what it's like to work for the firm on a full-time basis; PM also gives feedback to interns on their work, and provides various networking events that allow interns to get to know other interns and staff. The firm's career development opportunities for full-time staff are extensive, and PM's formal and informal mentoring programs are very much appreciated by insiders; the firm pairs up all new staff with a buddy to answer questions and provide advice on how to meet expectations and achieve goals. Plante Moran's culture is said to be one of its strengths, and the firm goes to great lengths to provide staff with a healthy work/life balance, offering flexible schedules, generous vacation time, and the room staff need to have a life outside work. Still, hours can be demanding during the busy season. As for compensation and benefits, insiders say both could use improvement, giving average ratings in both areas. With respect to diversity, the firm has several resource groups and programs in place that are effective. And philanthropy is also a focus of the firm. Meanwhile, business outlook is bright. Morale is strong, the leadership team is transparent and adept, and the firm is growing and poised to continue to grow.
