    Pros

    RK is a great place to start a career. It is a midsize firm that offers lateral and upward mobility. The firms structure is not as rigid as other firms, there are great benefits, flexible hours and fair compensation.

    Cons

    The firm has grown tremendously over the past years and the growth pains are felt throughout the firm resulting in voluntary and involuntary turnover of employees.

  2. decent experience but management needs to re-evaluate firm's future

    Pros

    the company offers very good for work/life balance.

    Cons

    management looks at employees as a cost not an asset. there is lack of job security no matter how good you are and how hard you work. employees are demotivated.

    Advice to Management

    Employees think management only cares about company's profit going into their/principals pocket. Whether this is true or false, management must have done something not right for the firm/employees to make employees think that way.

    Pros

    -One fair Partner who is very proactive and listens to the needs of his employees
    -The job is simple and can be done efficiently with all the resources available when you work with managers whose interests support the firm interests as a whole.

    Cons

    -The system always freezes and IT blames it all on the server and there's just 'nothing' that can be done.
    -Some members of management believes in only ONE way to audit
    -Personal preferences affect the evaluation process
    -Very detailed that Supervising Seniors miss the big picture of the audit because they focus too much on the neatness and uniformity of workpaper documentation

    Advice to Management

    The world of auditing is diverse and it continuously evolves so efficiency is key to more competitive bidding and winning proposals. Your traditional ways are in no way contributing to your efforts of being efficient. Educate your managers and supervising seniors who are afraid come out of their comfort zones and accept other audit methodologies that encourage efficiency.
