Staff Accountant, Bethesda, MD - July 24, 2013
During my time, the firm was understaffed and thus during all the major tax deadlines (4/15, 9/15, 10/15) work was hectic. Spend most of your day at your desk with work that was passed down from partners to managers to possibly supervisors and then staff, which made asking questions difficult. Also, don't expect to have any kind of bond with coworkers. Most folks there are reserved and don't participate in any social activities. Then again, are most accounting firms like this?
