    I have been working at Witt/Kieffer full-time

    Pros

    Small company with mostly laid back atmosphere. Strongly encourage Admins not to work 40 hours.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity throughout the company. Limited to non-existent career growth opportunities for admins. Admins have a lot of responsibility but are not always respected.

    I worked at Witt/Kieffer full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    None to share to be frank.

    Cons

    They are conservative dinosaurs. They are so far off with their work internally and with candidates of colors that I would say they are borderline racist.

    I have been working at Witt/Kieffer full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Witt has an amazing company culture: collaborative, high promotion opportunities, and supportive. Managers and mentors do everything they can to give you guidance and resources you need to be successful. Compensation incentives are more than generous; flexible schedules including work from home and working remotely

    Hours can be a bit long during peak season, not a 9-5 job

    I have been working at Witt/Kieffer full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It's a great culture and plenty of opportunities to move up for those that work hard. Given the nature of the work it can be a high stress environment, but the people in the firm genuinely care about one another and that more than makes up for the stress. Highly competitive compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Nothing of note at this time.
