Accountant (Former Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LASeptember 13, 2016
The company strives to be a top tier accounting firm in the area, allowing for continuous learning of all employees. They are fairly flexible on work like balance, considering the nature of the work. They could improve on incentive programs and department bonding activities to help retain talent.

Job Review
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 6, 2016
Quantititive analysis is good. Houston Management plays favorites with employees. Meetings are base on verbal acknowledgement not set policy and procedures. People are great and teamwork is good as well. But the Houston Management is too biased on employment assessment.
Long hours. Merit does not matter. How you are praised by Houston management matters more than how you perform or tenure.
Benefits are very expensive for families. Lousiana and Houston management do not care about your good being and how your career progresses.
Pros
birthday cake on first friday
Cons
too much favoritism by Houston managment

Wonderful environment with great skills earned
P&N Consulting - Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  New Orleans, LAMay 26, 2016
The collaborative environment at P&N allowed me to learn so much in my time there. The team environment was there, but there was also time to sit and dive into a spreadsheet on my own. The benefits are decent, the management is kind, and the company as a whole understands and values a work-family balance.

Better Be Part of the Inner Circle
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 16, 2016
P&N did a lot of layoffs recently. They said that determining factors for who would be laid off would be based on qualitative measures. Then explain how someone who volunteered twice to do a special role that nobody wants to do, actually performed it for several weeks until a change in the project changed course, always had high productivity, never had a meeting with Management about any issues, and the only meeting ever in which all employees sat through one-on-one the employee got a raving review with 3-4 times the performance in their first three months there? Oh, they weren't in the inner circle. They didn't go to lunch with the two Managers. One Manager purposely (Logan P) never said hi to this person or cared. The other Manager was OK, but Logan was a know-it-all guy who thought he was funny, but most people talked bad about him behind his back.
Pros
Good balance between work and life, nice OT pay
Cons
Management has favorites, You will be laid off if you're not friends with them or hang after work Logan, you're still not funny and were the worst Manager I've EVER had, bar none

A great place to work
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAMarch 15, 2016
P&N is a great company to work for all in all, but you have to remain focus on your goals while you are there. Depending on the department you are in there is room for growth. You will learn a lot working for this company educational and life wise.
