Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIFebruary 9, 2016
A typical day at work would be preparing commercial proposals for the Sales people, to present to their clients. Helped putting together Power Point presentations for them as well. I learned how to be more efficient in a timely manner with everything. I also learned to prioritize, since there were 9 Account Executives, 3 Managers and a Research Director to answer to. The hardest part of the job would be the deadlines at times. The most enjoyable part was the closeness of the entire Sales Department. We would have small parties, free lunches, potlucks, etc. I really enjoyed my time working at WISN TV.
Pros
Closeness of the Sales Department and free lunches, etc. of appreciation
Cons
Sometimes the deadlines were tough

Unrealistic Work Life Balance
Engagement Director (Former Employee) –  Hudson, WIDecember 29, 2015
Expectations are set very high in regards to work life balance. Work is to come first. Coworkers are great and support each other as long as they are in the same location as you.

Executive Assistant/Tax Processing Administrator (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZOctober 15, 2015
A typical work day was back to back items. Things always needed attention whether it was staff, procedures, jobs, projects etc. You can never say you had nothing to do there was always a deadline that needed attention. Your work/life balance was none existent.
Pros
Great firmwide policies and procedures. Great Culture
Cons
Drama and gossip

Great Development but No Work Life Balance
Audit Manager (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNAugust 10, 2015
Great place to start a finance a career. You really get a chance to sink your teeth in right away and a chance to explore both audit and tax. On the personal side the firm says they support work life but it's not something they appear to be committed to.

Horribile Managment-- Dont believe their "Culture" sales tactic
Staff Accountant (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLFebruary 4, 2015
Unless you are part of the elite cool people group, you dont stand a chance. If you are in a happy relationship, forget this place, you come married and leave divorced. HR is there to protect corporate. Not a diverse place at all. Managment is a joke, employees are stressed and overworked.
Pros
free coffee & tea. downtown area.
Cons
horrible organization structure, horrible training or lack of, discrimination

Audit Associate (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VASeptember 16, 2014
It's a sink or swim culture, and once you start sinking, you may as well just run for the door and don't look back.

Some staff/managers are great to work with, others are not.
Pros
some managers/partners, free coffee, not the worst hours
Cons
horrible management, uncaring culture, no communication at all

Managing Consultant (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNJuly 31, 2014
This company was very willing to provide me with all the education and materials needed to succeed in my job. The Principal Consultants are always helpful and available even when out of the office. A typical day for a coder at CLA is answering email questions from clients, creating engagement letters for current or potential clients, and researching coding issues. The hardest part of being a consulting is travel and the best part is the variety of work from physician, hospital, and long term care.
Pros
work variety
Cons
travel

Good Ole' Boys
Manager (Former Employee) –  MidwestJune 23, 2014
Don't even consider moving up in this company if you are a women. It won't happen. Its a good ole boys network through and through. All the females in my department were either demoted or laid off after the two firms merged. They didn't even attempt to hide it, it was blatant and no one cared. RUN THE OTHER WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pros
i only worked a few weekends and holidays
Cons
no advancement for women, lack of respect for colleagues, its about who you know, not what you know

Manager (Former Employee) –  Southern MNFebruary 7, 2013
Poor leadership, poor values and culture and no work life balance. You'll kill yourself with this job and it will never be enough. No staffing in this office, unable to leverage work to staff because there is none and high turnover rate.
Cons
management, staffing, no work life balance

File Clerk (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNAugust 27, 2012
I enjoyed working at CliftonLarsonAllen. I learned a lot and was very productive. A typical day here consisted of scanning legal documents such as tax files, birth certificates, etc. My coworkers were very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the steady flow of work coming in and working in an office on a computer. There was nothing very difficult about the job.
