Mid-level in Tax | Charlotte, NC | 2016 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Good working environment

Downers

Too many silos among business lines. If you aren't in the right one, you will not have opportunity depending on who you work for and the circumstances.

Comments

This is a great firm for entry level employees. They are nurtured and mentored. If one is hired with experience, I would not come in at less than the manager level. Senior associates are not welcomed or adequately trained. It is a sink or swim mentality, and I have seen many sink in the time I have been here.

I enjoy the independence and the people I work with, but the necessary hours to put in can be demanding.

Culture

Downers

The profession itself due to regulation, and the firm's response to this regulation is becoming cumbersome. It makes the job less enjoyable, as we are focusing more on ensuring we are not sued versus what is appropraite in terms of requirements.

Comments

I do believe our firm supports a work/life balance, and most employees are supportive and collaborate to ensure everyone has a good balance. We enjoy working with each other, which also creates for a positive working environment, even when busy season hours kick in.

The firm has a culture that promotes teamwork and learning together. There is a wide range of clients so you can get experience in many different areas before you make a decision on what you woud like to focus on. You will have a say in what clients you get placed on. The firm has a good work life balance for an accounting firm. The opportunities to advance are there as long as you are willing to put in the effort.
