    I worked at Sikich full-time

    Pros

    WFH opportunities, Flexible PTO, decent compensation

    Cons

    Never have felt so stressed with a company. They are continually changing, very political, no strong culture at the corporate location, outdated systems. Sleek website and marketing hide an overall weak company.

    I worked at Sikich full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible time off - If you can get around to using vacation time.

    Cons

    Worst office politics in the workplace I’ve ever encountered. The firm has two goals, appeasing management, and growing top line revenue and does not care for much else. They will treat staff and seniors very poorly - i.e. overworking, and always underpaying compared to market rates, as well as dangling promotions over employees heads to get them to work more (and then not delivering on said promotions). You either...

    Advice to Management

    Invest in younger staff and seniors, and pay competitively. Give people the opportunity to succeed and take the time to teach - not just throw people in situations and expect them to figure it out.

    Pros

    The people that work at Sikich make it a great place to work. They are forward-thinking, smart, fun and overall good people. Additionally, the culture has driven more great people to join the firm in recent years. I can say that it was not always this way. The culture has shifted to a more desirable one now than what it was when I joined the firm over three years ago. Management and firm leaders really listen to...

    Cons

    Not all offices are as desirable, new and advanced as others. It would be great to have consistent work-space for employees at all locations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employee feedback and continue to lead a forward-thinking firm!

    Cons

    Upper management can be more transparent

    Advice to Management

    Sikich is by far the best company I worked for, not only because of the range of services they offer and the way they treat their clients, but because of the people I work with. Happy people means a happy company and a great company culture, and the one thing you'll notice is that everyone says hi to you in the hallways. Our work is always appreciated and teamwork and independent brainstorming are both valued and encouraged....

      I worked at Sikich full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Small intimate team. Could work remote if you wanted.

      Cons

      Did not provide any training to help me be good at my job. I was expected to learn everything on my own or from my peers who were always on site with clients and almost impossible to get a hold of at times. Very bottleneck type of management at times.

      Advice to Management

      Train your employees and have them get certified quickly so they know that you care about their development.

      I have been working at Sikich full-time

      Pros

      A large number of people are able to work either completely from their homes or if working in an office can typically work at least one day a week from home. I love the flexibility of being able to work at home when I need to be there for my kids. Any time something comes up family related my boss is always completely understanding and let's me do what I need to do to make life easier, knowing that they can trust me...

      Cons

      The only con I can think of is that we just need to increase opportunities for those in the offices to get together. Since we do have so many at clients or working from home it makes it more of a challenge for group fun events and makes the office super quiet. But they are trying to increase those with a Halloween gathering and a holiday lunch that everyone is invited to.

      Pros

      Sikich has a great culture and offers a ton of flexibility. It is an agile team environment without a lot of hierarchy. The leadership team encourages new ideas from the whole organization.

      Cons

      High growth organization so you have to be able to move quickly and adapt to change.
