    I worked at International Fund Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -WFH full time. -4 weeks vacation + 3 personal days + 5 sick days + birthday day off Decent place to start your career and get your foot in the door if you’re looking to gain some product exposure. I got good enough work experience to now work at a hedge fund. Coworkers were mostly good people to work with and supported each other (this is excusing upper management)

    Cons

    Little to 0 room for growth after your first year or 2. Yearly bonuses and raises are minimal and they had a freeze on promotions for 2.5 years out of my 3 years working there. They make it clear that they aren’t hiring replacements in New York. If people leave and are looking to Indian resources to replace the production. I don’t know who I’m writing this review for because they made it very clear they are not hiring in New York. The atmosphere is toxic at this point as most of my group as left and grew frustrated with the lack of appreciation of our work.

    I worked at International Fund Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Relaxed environment outside of tax season/estimate season. Plenty of WFH and flex time.

    Cons

    Training is abysmal. Reviews are overly harsh. This is not a place to come before gaining more meaningful experience in public accounting. They will expect you to know how to do things with the smallest amount of informal training, then grill you for not knowing how to do it, and suggest maybe you should sit for your CPA to learn (yet the company provides little to no support for CPA candidate classes/exams sponsorship). There is a core group that has been with the company for years, and advancement from the lower level is damn near impossible. There are accountants there with little knowledge themselves, but merely got in when things were better.
