Tax Intern (Former Employee) – Rice Lake, WI – October 25, 2017
The Rice Lake office is a very small office, under 10 employees there total, and because of that I really enjoyed the job. You always had someone that you could ask with enough knowledge to help you or could tell you to go to the next office and get the answer you were looking for.
At Wipfli my day started off by greeting Renee our receptionist. I had a daily task witch was to check the conference rooms, set up for meeting, cover the receptionist on her breaks also I worked with tax doing exel work and tax projects.
Engineer III (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – December 31, 2016
Pay well, good benefits, but job security may be an issue. Friendly people right up until the end. No direction. No real warning will be given if you are needing to improve. If warned, it's very possible that it's already too late.
Better than average compensation and home/work life balance.
Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – Rhinelander, WI – August 27, 2013
Tasks would vary from day to day. Learned a lot about the auditing process in general, especially in the governmental sector. Management seemed okay, at the time I was with the company they were really pushing for expansion, and you could see they were excited about it. Hardest part of the job was traveling and of course tax season. Best part was working with some amazing clients.
Senior Auditor (Current Employee) – Rhinelander, WI – March 29, 2013
Good company with a mix of big firm/small offices. You have access to all the research tools you need along with support and guidance provided by a big firm with the ability to customize audits based on clients.
Wipfli cares about it's clients and customer service is top priority
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Dixon, IL – June 22, 2012
A day in never typical. It is always changing, which I love.
We have gone through a merger and it was kinda a rocky experience. Most of the staff felt that some issues should have been addressed and looked at before proceeding with the merger.
The management is for the most part is good. However there is very little room for advancement and some people hold positions that they are not qualified for. Their lack of schooling is very unprofessional and shows.
The hardest part of this job is tax season. Where we work almost 4 months non-stop 12-14, hours or more a day. You have no home life during this time. The pay checks are great (we are allowed to work as much overtime as we can handle) I work in the office that handles 3-4 thousand tax returns a year. We handle the most tax work than any other office (22 offices plus 2 in India).
We have a fun group to work with and we help each other as much as possible. I enjoy the customer contact the most. We have a vast range of cliental from very elderly to high school adults. This place is always moving at a fast pace.
