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.

Downers

People are promoted based on technical skills without people skills. Some managers don't have the soft skills to be good communicators or pleasant to work with.

There is no other place I would have rather started my public accounting career in. You cannot beat the people, the clients and the culture.

Comments

The firm is a great sized firm if you are looking for a balance between a large and small firm. With 400 people across 5 offices, you still get the perks of working with many different people and diversifying your type of work, but it is small enough to where everyone knows you by your name and you are not just a number in a headcount. The firm has been around for 65 years, and is very established in the Silicon Valley. The firm has some fascinating and unique client relationships that are absolutely invaluable and cannot be bought or achieved quickly elsewhere. It is a prestigious firm and it prides itself in providing excellent service to its clients. Think of it as the Nordstrom of regional public accounting firms.
