    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at The Siegfried Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Potential to make decent money if you want to sacrifice work/life balance, recruit in more employees, and find clients and work or basically do the job that the BD people are supposed to be doing. while also working at your client. Sometimes if by chance you'll get an assignment that is interesting and different but you normally have very little say into what you'll be doing.

    Cons

    Dealing with the nonsense of internal leadership and I use the term loosely. Most of them are just chasing the whims of the CEO which usually means back-pedaling and trying to explain why the latest directive wasn't properly vetted and is full of holes. Earned bonuses are vested and paid out over extended future months. Commutes and work hours are expected to be long with mandatory personal coaching/pep rally events and other local events added on. Internal leadership is incompetent, condescending and negative. There is a huge internal infrastructure keeping senior leadership happy. Client is always right so if you disagree you must be wrong. Not sensitive to the personal issues of the resource....just keep billing and don't even consider to offer constructive suggestions that internal leadership might be expected to raise to the CEO. They don't want to hear that...if you don't agree with how things are run, you're not a good fit so should probably leave. Don't have an opinion unless it agrees with theirs.

    I have been working at The Siegfried Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Siegfried has been a great employer for me because I have been able to build upon my prior accounting experience through working on a variety of engagements. While at Siegfried, I have been on 4 engagements ranging from Public Accounting, Internal Auditing, Alternative Investment Accounting and Real Estate Accounting. For someone that enjoys travel, I have had the opportunity to work in various states all over the US and even worked in Napa Valley. To name a few industries I have worked on are banking, retail, fertilizer, oil & gas, timber and winery, but not all. I have been to Vegas a couple of times for Siegfried Seminars and Fun! Recently, I was promoted to Team Leader and now have the opportunity to serve the Resources and be a part of their career paths while at Siegfried. The promotion has been a highlight for me. The Firm has been extremely accommodating to me and generous to my family.

    Cons

    If you are not looking for variety in assignments and projects, then you may want to reconsider your chosen career path.

    Pros

    1) Varying Client Assignments -- really does enhance your resume 2) Long Client Assignments -- combines the best of both private and public accounting where you are treated as part of a team and truly valued (much different than the view for external auditors) 3) Driven/Intellectual Colleagues -- refreshing to work with like-minded individuals 4) Lavish annual trips that make you feel special -- always nice to have fancy dinners and accommodations provided

    Cons

    1) Weekly hour goal is making the feel of the company too similar to public accounting 2) Travel demands can be excessive
