Toxic culture

This was by far the worst job experience I've ever had. The culture is toxic, you live and work in fear and dread going in everyday. The pay was also well below market and you would face retaliation if you dared ask for a raise or comp review.DO NOT GO HERE!

Bonne expérience

Manque d'écoute de la part des associés. À la suite d'une collègue partie en retraite, ils n'ont pas voulu la remplacer. Après une surcharge de travail et de nouvelles tâches qui m'ont été attribuées, je n'ai pas eu le choix de démissionner!

Pros

Tâches diverses

Cons

N'écoute pas ses employées

Good stepping stone for your career

Good stepping stone for your career. Typical accounting firm culture. Very cutthroat if you cannot perform but endless opportunities if you are hard working and sharp.

Learning opportunities and culture

Very busy but has been a great environment for obtaining significant accounting knowledge allowing me to take on senior roles like in-charge role for several audits, prepare year-ends for compilations and review engagements. Life happens but if you're not at work putting in 8-10 hour days you are not popular. I do believe overall with offices across the Country that the majority of offices have great workplace culture.

Pros

Great employer for those looking to advance a career in accounting

Cons

Expected to work long hours
