Assurance Intern (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 25, 2016
I typically worked from 8 am to 6 pm. I learned about auditing (cash, accounts payable and receivable, equity). The hardest and most enjoyable part was that it was challenging. Learning concepts and applying them from engagement to engagement. The staff were easy to work with and helpful.
Incredible place to work with extremely caring co-workers and management
Assurance In-Charge (Current Employee) – Southfield, MI – December 9, 2015
Plante Moran is a great company to work for where work/life balance is a priority. It has been consistently recognized as one of the nation’s “100 Best Companies To Work For” by FORTUNE magazine and this is truly shown and felt each and every day by those who are employed. Management genuinely cares about each individual's career development and aspirations and takes the time to develop a roadmap for their goals with the firm on a bi-annual basis. As with any public accounting firm, the work hours are strenuous and long during tax season, however, employees are able to take advantage of the slower times throughout the year.
Staff (Current Employee) – southfield, MI – April 26, 2015
So much change is needed, don't know where to start. Really need to stop with the slogans, i.e. "jerk-free" "easy as pie", etc this is very passé. Upgrade technology to this century. Spend the money on this and not on the annual firm conference. No one really cares about skits and seeing who made partner - waste of a day and dollars. Get HR to stop gossiping over the fence.
Strong Michigan presence. Lot's of openings due to huge turnover
No real presence in Illinois or Ohio, Huge turnover especially in Ann Arbor Kalamazoo and Columbus offices, Partners aren't very "jerk-free" in these offices and support staff are NOT "Jerk-free" at all, If you're going to work here stay clear of these offices, they're the worst of the firm, As many of the other reviews have stated technology is so far behind.
Senior Management Consultant (Current Employee) – Southfield, MI – February 24, 2015
Plante Moran is a great place to work. I enjoy the work and meeting new clients however, my personal life has changed with the addition of my son. The high corporate demands to drive new business and be able to travel out of state at a moment’s notice is no longer a good fit for me.
Productive place to work with multiple tasks to accomplish.
Administrative Support (Former Employee) – Southfield, MI – April 11, 2014
A typical day would be to multi task various projects within tight deadlines. I learned how to prioritize the work day to accomplish the goals. Management did its best to accomodate requests. Most co-workers were pleasant and team players. The hardest part was to balance work and life at the busiest times of the year. The most enjoyable was to interact with a diverse group of individuals on a daily basis.

I don't know how they keep winning that award. There must be something else going on that I didn't see. In the IT Security Consulting area it is a dog eat dog culture, no work life balance and the people there including HR are not the most honest of chaps.
Report Processing (Former Employee) – Southfield, MI – August 28, 2013
I had high hopes when I first started, but within a month, I was miserable. They offered no training, and my manager couldn't answer the simplest questions. There was no balance. During the busy season, I worked 90+ hours in one week, and my manager acted disgusted when I had to leave early one day due to a family emergency. I was very relieved when I finally got out of there.
pto time, benefits
very stressful, could only take pto during the summer, unprofessional attitudes
Manager (Former Employee) – Southfield, MI – June 13, 2013
There are some decent perks working here and the pay isn't too bad. But the way you get treated by other managers, is not the best way going about business. If you're looking for a tax and accounting firms, there are much better ones to consider. There is very little room to move up in this company also.
decent pay, pto time
long hours, dishonest management, rumors spread quickly
Audit Manager (Former Employee) – Flint, MI – May 28, 2013
Every day is a learning experience. I mean that in a good way. Management is willing to train you and you can go as far as you want. The hardest part, just like with any CPA is the level of commitment required during peak times, but I guarantee that even thought the days could be long, the people that you work with will make it better.
