Review:

"The best place I've ever worked"

Former Employee - Reviewed on August 05, 2019

Pros : This is literally the best firm I've worked for, in any industry. F&P is very fair to its staff, promotes from within, cross-trains, and gives opportunities to advance to anyone who shows a desire to learn. The only reason I left was because I moved away from Tampa to Jacksonville, and they don't have an office here. If I ever had the chance to work here again, I'd take it.
Cons : I wish they had an office in Jacksonville.
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes
Recommend this employer to a friend? : Yes
Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
Current or former employee? : Former Employee
Last Year at Employer : 2015
Job type : Full time
