Review:

"Critical advice to anyone applying to the tax position---get an offer before giving them sensitive information"

Former Employee - Reviewed on July 29, 2020

Be ethical, be transparent.

Pros : Nothing.
Cons : At the end of a 3-hour interview with six partners, I was asked how soon I could start (with pressure to start ASAP) and they told me the salary range. I clearly stated that I did not have my own business. Then, I was asked to provide references, consent to a background check and complete a due diligence questionnaire disclosing sensitive information (billable hours, cash realization for several years). After that, the managing partner told me we should have a call to discuss compensation and then I could met additional people. We had the call and then he never called me back. Why? Today, I learned that it was because my numbers did not show portable business. Like a reasonable person, I thought I had an offer when I provided the information. No, they were just poking around. According to the managing partner, that is a common thing to do. No, it is not. The common and ethical thing to do is to make an offer contingent upon completion of a full background check. PLEASE---don't make the mistake I made. Don't give them any information until they tell you there is an offer. You should not be required to give a strange firm information you wouldn't give to peers at your current firm for absolutely no reason. PS--I selected "former employee" below because there is no box for applicant or prospective employee. As I have clearly stated, I was not an employee. There should be a way to review a company whose application process is dysfunctional. It tells you a lot about what you are getting into.
