Great Culture

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.

The best aspects are opportunities to develop your own projects and lead them, friendly people, and some flexibility in your time.

Downers

The worst aspects are ignored diversity issues and non-recognition of high performing individuals in lieu of cliques in the firm.

Client relationships.

Downers

It is an accounting firm, not a consulting firm. For the consulting practices - they really don't seem to know what to do.

Comments

In spite of everything above, this firm employs some outstanding people that I enjoy working alongside.
