Midlevel in Business Operations
Dallas, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

There are very good people in my office


Downers

Compensation and culture are both lagging behind as the firm grows


Comments

Work is inconsistent and varied. Could be on a great or terrible project. Emphasis on grit, selling ability and work ethic over intelligence and intellectual capability.

Comments

The cultural between divisions is very disfunctional and creates animosity. And the allocation of resources is very disorganized.

You are entering at the bottom of whatever level at which you are hired. Be prepared to prove yourself.

Entry-level
Seattle, WA | 2012 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

I work with a number of great people and am learning about tax issues.


Downers

I do not have much control over who I work with or what work I do. The firm's informal cultural policy against "****" is not supported.



A lack of diverse working experiences leaves me poorly positioned for long term career opportunities.



The firm has difficulty retaining and attracting talent.



The firm has a problem with name recognition. Because it is not "Big 4" the experience of its employees is seen as less valid than competitors. This creates difficulty with new clients, potential hires and employees who are seeking jobs outside of the firm. In turn, this leads to the problem above about a lack of diverse working experiences.


Comments

Depending on your group and service line, you could have an excellent or terrible experience. The A&M brand is not well known in some circles, and this could impact your future job opportunities. Compensation is pretty good, but within the range of other firms performing similar work.
