Internship was one big marketing tool/daycare

3.0 of 5 stars

October 2017 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

people were great. Firm really knows how to recruit and market themselves. Pay was good.

Downers

Almost non-existent actual work offered to interns. Felt more like a big "wine and dine" event which obviously appeals to the younger crowd. Engaged more with the recuruiters than the actual employees. Due to the nature of the summer season, often told to "act busy" rather than perform actual work. At the end of the internship, we were required to fill out an "optional" Vault survey with the other interns and recuiters present. Brilliant form of marketing used by FRCO to gain national exposure however I think they are a bit overrated.

Comments

Its a solid firm in the Bay Area, but take everything with a grain of salt. The recruiters and marketing team need a raise!

Comments

If you're interested in becoming an accountant and working directly in the tax department, you're king here. If you work in any other department, you bow down to tax for the most part, especially if you're hired as a staff person or in the Service to the Firm department.

The workload is intense during busy seasons but manageable for the rest of the time (unless you're in Family Office and then it's always busy). As an associate, you get paid a LOT, especially for an entry level position and you have a clear path to moving up in your department, packed with large raises yearly. Everyone's generally really nice and friendly, and there's a huge population of young people. If you're hired as a first year associate, you'll be coming in with at least 20 other people in you're same spot, so it's easy to make friends.

If you get hired as a staff or service person, your time at the firm will be a lot different. If you're not in tax, you have fewer opportunities or advantages to move up or succeed and you don't get praised as much or get invited to as many parties.

Work/life balance

Comments

The compensation is competitive and becomes even more competitive as you move up the ladder. The work load is really tough, but I believe with the amount of new hires we are starting to hire, the workload will eventually decrease per person.

Audit could be more selective when bringing in business.
