Senior Staff Tax Accountant (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – May 7, 2018
Like any place there are great people and not so great people. Will be given the kool-aide. Do not back up promises, and if there are problems do not expect to be notified about them until it is too late.
Time & Billing Administrator (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – February 28, 2018
One of the best places to work! Staff is great. Stressful during tax season but that goes with the job. Great training and continuing education opportunities. Strong commitment to clients. Very supportive of employees.
The benefits are on par with other public accounting firms and can quickly advance with some dedication during tax season and getting in good with management. Made some great friends and some managers were easier to work for than others. If you live to work and don't mind losing 3-4 months of your life every year this is a great place for you! If you're about more than money and a title than might want to look elsewhere. There was a mass exodus of mid level staff around the same time I left. Management offers little direction and does not support staff when assignments are above their pay grade. When a client is upset they would look for the lowest level employee that worked on the account to use as a scape goat and give you the axe. I learned a lot about accounting and even more about poor corporate culture from my time at UHY.
Compensation, benefits, coworkers at a staff level
Lack of management oversight and assistance, fire you when client is upset
Senior Tax Accountant (Former Employee) – Sterling Heights, MI – January 30, 2017
Great place to gain experience, so are other firms. They promote work/life balance and an open ear culture, however, when problems arise, you are left to drown. Management does not take accountability when things go wrong and push there work down to associates, but they are quick to take credit when things go great.
Tax Manager (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – November 28, 2016
They promote work/life balance but require way too much time during tax season when other firms are cutting back on tax season hour requirements. Sad and ridiculous,. Otherwise it wouldn't be too bad .

Human Resources - Executive Search Recruiter (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – February 10, 2015
The HR Management and Partners worked to keep a good working relationship between HR, the partners and its tax and audit people and staff at UHY. In public accounting, there is a need during the busy season to have people work long hours. The management did its best to make the work environment a more desirable place to work. An emphasis was made by HR to work harder on retention and even had alumni parties to keep a good relationship with ex-UHY employees, who were offered referral bonuses. In December, UHY became part of BDO.

Staff (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – August 19, 2013
There is a steady work flow every day. The company cares about its employees and gives great benefits. Advancement is slow in certain departments and usually calls for company change in order to move up the ladder.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 5, 2013
I was an administrative assistant, and my job required that I eventually become a full-time staff recruiter. A typical day at work included being a personal assistant to the chief recruiter in my department, as well as maintaining expense reports and paperwork for the contractors we supplied to clients. I became responsible for searching for and placing new talent in job openings for clients. Management was not very involved in my daily operations other than handing over expectations and assignments, and I am more of a team-oriented individual, and I would like to have seen a more team-based environment. My co-workers were very hard-working, driven and helpful. I did feel part of a team with them. The hardest part of the job was convincing people over the phone that I could promise them a better job if they were to switch to our company and join our team. I felt that it was unethical, and ultimately it led to my departure with that part of the company. I found that it was a better fit for me to stay on the administrative side and deal with the clerical needs of my department. The most enjoyable part fo the job was the company picnics and outings.

management, no prospect of upward movement, felt pigeon-holed
