    I have been working at The Siegfried Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Through the My Journey program, the company trains employees holistically and mandates self-reflection and evaluation of our own personal long-term goals. We’re encouraged to think broadly about our own wellbeing and lifelong objectives by setting goals in areas such as the Physical, Intellectual and Spiritual facets of our lives. This program is embedded in the company’s culture and truly sets it apart from anything else I have experienced. Moreover, the employees here are generally just great people who are easy to work with and fun to be around. The compensation plan is good too and well suited to self-starters who can take advantage of the performance based bonuses. Lastly, the business model means that one will experience multiple work environments, teams and projects; learning, growing personally and building a career in the process.

    Cons

    The work hours can be long especially when combined with after-hours events and travel. For me personally, I enjoy working, love travelling and enjoy the variety that the professional resource role brings. However, if you’re looking for a “9-5 job” you should probably look elsewhere.

    I have been working at The Siegfried Group full-time

    Pros

    - Great compensation and benefits (nearly double of what i was earning at big 4) - Great people (largely ex big4/GT/RSM) who are strong performers and easy to work and get along with - Great culture - there are alot of firm networking and social events which I always get alot out of , whether its meeting new people and building my network or listening to inspirational guest speakers - Great place for learning and professional development- wide variety of courses offered including Rev rec/Leases, digital agility, excel expert certification (all paid for by the firm plus an additional allowance to spend on external relevant courses we wish to take)

    Cons

    - not many besides initially not knowing what type of engagement you will be working on when you just start but most of the engagement I've been presented with sound interesting

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

    Pros

    Great people... I couldn't ask for better co-workers. We work hard and play hard and everyday is something new. I have learned so much since I started working here three years ago. I definitely don't think I could have gained this kind of experience and skills working anywhere else in such a short period of time.

    Cons

    Like I said, we work really hard. Often I find myself averaging 10 hour work days M-F, and sometimes have to work on Saturdays from time to time or travel.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at The Siegfried Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1) The pay, especially if you travel or are on an engagement for more than six months, is really good. 2) I met lots of great people while there. 3) The work can be really rewarding if you get on the right client. 4) All the standard perks of a good CPA firm (CPA exam reimbursement & bonus, travel stipend, etc.) without having to do audit work

    Cons

    Sometimes the work can be low-level (depending on the client & assignment). Clients might also view you as a temp if they're not well informed about the company and the capabilities of its resources.
