    We appreciate your feedback. As a firm, Plante Moran strives to promote a healthy work-life balance through a variety of programs. While longer hours may be expected during busy season, we encourage staff to practice our policies to find the right work-life mix. We understand that finding the right balance is highly personal, which is why we encourage staff members to take advantage of our flexible time off (FTO) policy throughout the year. We also have a WorkFlex committee committed to serving as a staff resource for any challenges and ideas related to improving work-life balance.

    I worked at Plante Moran full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Casual attire, SOME nice people in office

    Cons

    PM laid off numbers of people during COVID19 but claimed to let them go due to performances. Claimed to have be flexible by allowing staff to work from home but pressured employees to go to the office. Partners are not "Jerk-free" and shows TONS of favoritism to specific staffs. Strongly not advicing people to join this company as experience hired.

    July 29, 2020Experienced Hire Coordinator

    At Plante Moran, we try our best to be "relatively jerk-free" and follow the Golden Rule. Principles like these help ensure our staff enjoy who they’re working with and are treated with the respect they deserve. Staff are encouraged to speak up if they experience favoritism, unfairness, and any other instances that don’t quite align with our values. Even in our remote environment, we uphold these strong values that have helped us to create our unique culture.
