Support from management
There was no leadership.
There was no teamwork, it was more or less you learned it yourself. You didn't ask questions or else you were reprimanded. If you did something wrong you were not show what you did wrong or how to fix it, it was fixed behind your back and then you were reprimanded again for doing something wrong. Or the CPA's would correct it and then not tell you did it wrong, so you continue to do it wrong. My training by co-workings was little to nothing - I learned by myself. They didn't want to show me what to do on any clients.
Attitude towards older colleagues
The knowledge and expertise that I brought was ignored and ways to simplify certain procedures that I suggested that were proven to be effective from a previous job were ignored or laughed at from younger co-workers!
Overall compensation for your work
I was paid on an hourly scale when really should have been a salary scale. Overtime was looked down on and you were not allowed to work on Saturdays - this is a CPA office there are times that are required to work overtime! Benefits were very poor - health insurance was a "savings plan" not a normal health insurance plan (ppo or hpo)
I lasted 6 weeks
No, there is still mold and mildew in the building from a previous flood / fire. Getting out of the office was very tricky and steps were hazardous.
Suggestions for improvement
- Get rid of several employees and learn to communicate with your employees better. Update your computers so they don't freeze up all the time and learn to have a better working environment overall!
What I like about the company
I liked the accounting software that I used during my time working there, it was a great program to use and I learned more using it.
What I dislike about the company
No leadership; no support when suggesting a different way of doing things (filing payments online vs. mailing checks every month - NCDOR and EFTPS payments); not able to telecommute from home - trust issues for employees - when I live two counties away and weather impedes you from getting to work (4 inches of ice/2 inches of snow on first go around, then 10 inches of snow); most companies are technologically savvy enough to do this, but they would not even entertain the idea of this for any of their employees.
