      Rigid Promotion Structure

      Aug 31, 2017 - Intermediate Accountant in Toronto, ON

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Wide variety of clients in various industries. Some of them are really interesting - you get to work on all sections of the audit file. I came from another firm and found the learning opportunities here to be greater - managers are friendly and willing to help if you have questions. I find i can go to their office whenever I need to when stuck on something

      Cons

      - the benefits could really be improved. If they want to retain talent the health benefits have to be better. They're very poor - the busy season is way too long and it seems as though the workload falls on a few people. The company is understaffed and it makes it really hard. Burnout is a real concern - The promotion structure is terrible. None of the other firms promote like they do. It's hard to move up - pay is low compared to the work that you do - their training is almost non-existent. Juniors are trained with Seniors so you'll be wasting time already learning what you know. There isn't professional development
