talk more about the firm's financial goals at events and how you want the people to get you there, that is where the people matter to this firm
old hardware and software, but they are working on it still....
poor job of quoting clients creates unrealistic expectations of how long the jobs should take and it becomes the workers fault even when the employee tries to let the manager know it is taking too long
pay up front benefits package in a company of this size when a traditional package would be easily maintainable
if there is a personality conflict with the manager expect your walking papers suddenly and without any kind of discussion before hand, once again exactly what a real "people company" would do instead of trying to help find a mutually beneficial solution when the worker is the one looking for help repeatedly.
too dependent on online management tools to reduce the requirement of team interaction
do you want your voice or input on departmental changes to matter? you better not be below a manager's position
free dinner during tax season if you work over 10 hours that day
false information during the interview, not a team environment at all

Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 22 November 2017
This is a terrible place to work. They don't care about their employees, only numbers. Employees are crammed in work spaces. They are expected to generate new clients, even at the junior level. During tax season an 80hr work week is applauded and it makes everyone else feel like they should do the same. At the end of tax season, they do a mass lay-off so they don't have to pay staff over the slower months.
