Suggestions for improvement

  • There are so many good things about this firm, but this obsession with being "different" isn't always good. It is good to differentiate on the things that matter, but you hobble us with terrible technology, put performance measurement systems that are tied to our compensation in place that are nothing more than a popularity contest, and then expect us to work our hinds off for you with big huge smiles on our face. You have not once asked the firm what they think of these new changes in any way that would allow honest, but confidential feedback - because in truth, you don't really want to know. Stop trying to "sell" us on these new tools. You have never had to do that before. When the value is obvious, you will have an entire firm that will support and adopt the changes. Right now it feels like a used car salesman who has to over sell on the paint color to make up for the terrible interior and under powered engine. If you have to do this much selling to get us to use something - is it really THAT good to begin with? Differentiate on the things that matter - the additions to our capabilities though the amazing acquisitions we have made, the deployment of the value exchange, our positioning with the analyst community, thought leadership that allows us to carry a strong point of view into the market place, the significant investment you make in the training and skill development of staff, the relationships that we build with our clients every day through the amazing work we do. You have a ton of people who are proud to work here and who trust and value you as leaders, but these decisions you are making now make us question whether that trust is well placed.

What I like about the company

Great upward mobility for entry level positions. Lots of opportunity to move to various groups within company to learn different specialities (advisory, audit, tax, or different industry focuses). Company has invested money in good training programs to not only learn your industry, but to also learn about emerging technology.

What I dislike about the company

Busy season can be pretty busy! Pressure to always have outstanding work

Company Image

Job Security

My position was eliminated and became virtual. People were hired in lower income states and they got to work from home to save on overhead costs; therefore, increasing the firm's profit margins.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes

Workplace Safety

Yes

Challenging Work

Always

Inclusive / Diverse

I never felt like a minority. The firm had several affinity groups which catered to every ethnicity.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Don't eliminate positions of employees who have been there for the long haul, just to increase your profit margins.

What I like about the company

Very challenging! Never a dull moment.

What I dislike about the company

Due to keeping a larger profit, they eliminate positions and also moved some position overseas.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Keep embracing a healthy lifestyle and flexibility. It seems more teams are better at it than others

What I like about the company

It has allowed me to grow professionally and personally. The people here are very smart and you can learn a lot from them. It has also allowed me to travel all across the US which was refreshing to see. There are always things going on with our clients so there is never a dull moment.

What I dislike about the company

I think the Cknpany could work on listening to their employees a little better. There are some clients who have significant turnover every year and it seems the company has never asked “why” or “what can we do to prevent this from happening every year”. There are times it seems they value keeping the client than their own staff.
