MANAGING DIRECTOR (Former Employee) –  United StatesSeptember 14, 2018
Didn't have a great experience. Was shifted around through multiple roles with no planning done on the forefront. Was never put in a position to succeed. They do OK with new-hires through managers, but struggle with higher-level talent.

great for learn
Associate Tax Compliance (Former Employee) –  San Juan, PRSeptember 11, 2018
It is a great opportunity for learn and grow. They have to work with the hours during the busy season, because we can expect that if going to be hard like another public firm, but it will be better.

Management team especially at the local level could be better
Audit senior manager (Current Employee) –  McLean, VAAugust 27, 2018
Management team especially at the local level could be better. Clear communication is especially on the expectations to the people below to help them move to the next level is not clear and concise.

Focus on improving quality should be taken seriously. Serious staffing and turn over problem affects focusing on quality.

Great management as they really care about the work life balance of the employee. Top management want to steer new comers from larger firms by providing better benefits.

Not a very productive place to work
Risk Advisory Services Intern (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 30, 2018
Not a very productive place to work. Weeks with no assignments would often be followed by weeks of intense overtime. It seemed that planning out engagements was done with little or no concern for the staff working hours.

poor morale and poor management
Tax Manager (Former Employee) –  Troy, MIJuly 23, 2018
corporate culture and values are great but not supported at the local level

if you are not a favorite, you are overlooked. Certain people can do things that others are not - very random. Secretive culture which greatly impacts morale.
Pros
free food

Don't miss a great chance
Experienced Audit Staff (Former Employee) –  Austin, TX 78701July 14, 2018
An amazing place to work. You'll put in the hours expected in a larger public accounting firm but the knowledge you receive and the environment is great. The partners in Austin are open door and will help you whenever. If not for personal issues going on I would have never left. They even tried to help me find an alliance firm or office close to my hometown.

Productive office with opportunities to be challenged

Staff development is a key focus which not only helps them progress further, but also trains them for taking on more challenging assignments.
Pros
free meals & snacks
Cons
Communication from the national office can at times be slow

Company was high paced day. Compensation was more than the normal pay at the time. Clients started to leave because it was a high cost accounting firm. Lack of work.
