    I worked at The Siegfried Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked with a lot of good colleagues who were skilled

    Cons

    The people who send us out to work at clients are a bunch of buffoons! Some are not even accountants and you will receive arbitrary ratings based solely on someone at the company. A vast majority of the people I worked with at Siegfried think that the local leadership, such as Directors and Regional Directors are total scumbags that you should not put any faith in. The work may be good but the "leadership" who... oversee the Professional Resources cannot be trusted and will lie to your face. Its a sad fact about The Siegfried Group, most resources will take their high payouts and jump ship, rather than stay in the cesspool that the organization is in.

    I have been working at The Siegfried Group

    Pros

    You get to meet accounting professionals around the same age group. Pay is good if your willing to sacrifice your career development.

    Cons

    You will get forced on projects that will not build your professional skill-set. The leadership group is the most unprofessional group of people I have met in my career. Leadership is extremely incompetent where director roles are given to individuals who are incredibly under-qualified

    Advice to Management

    There is a reason why this company is hiring at such a fast rate. Not due to growth, but due to large employee turnover. You will only retain bad employees if your main incentive is just pay.
