    Je travaille chez CFGI à temps plein depuis plus de 3 ans

    Avantages

    The firm has really grown its brand over the years and has some impressive clients, especially in the Boston and New York markets. You'll work with mostly great companies and have a chance to be on really challenging projects that will help with your development. The firm as a whole has a very weak training program and provides very little guidance and direction, however, if you are a self-starter that can take charge...

    Inconvénients

    - The firm struggles with incredibly weak leadership. CFGI is almost 400 people strong now, and has virtually no back-office support structure in place. There is no HR function, no scheduling or resource management support, and a bare-bones accounting group. Virtually all administrative aspects of the firm fall on the client serving Senior Mangers and Managing Directors. - The firm mandates everyone at all...

    Conseils à la direction

    Invest in firm infrastructure and your employees. If you really want to be an employer of choice and keep your employees long term, start investing in their development, health, financial well-being, and work-life balance.

    Avantages

    If you bring the right attitude and back it up with a quality work product, your career is supercharged here. For me, I'm programmed differently. I cant be in the same spot every day doing the same thing, I need variety. Client facing work keeps me going and I've found a happy medium here between Big 4 and industry. I've been setup for success, fed a steady stream of attractive project based work, brought in business...

    Inconvénients

    Could have improvement to a few perks when it comes to overall benefits package

    Conseils à la direction

    More firmwide touchpoints to keep current with all growth in other markets/practices

    J'ai travaillé chez CFGI à temps plein plus d'un an

    Avantages

    There are a few certain smart people there that also actually have souls, if you're lucky enough to get to work with them, but for the most part just more of the same from auditing days with little thought and more just going through motions. If you're lucky enough to work with a good MD/Partner and not thrown on to do busy intern work, you can learn about some complex technical accounting issues..unlikely though.

    Inconvénients

    -Terrible benefits.-slight salary bump from big 4, but after what's taken out of your check for insurances,etc, its barely a raise. No 401k matching until after a year, % and vesting schedule are below industry norm. Vacation/holiday PTO also on low side.. handful of other jobs you can go to with 25% more PTO and fully paid health benefits. -"Bonus"- The bonus is based on "overtime" hours, so if you left big 4 hoping...

    Je travaille chez CFGI à temps plein depuis plus de 3 ans

    Avantages

    There is a moderate base pay bump from Big 4 with some overtime compensation. The annual 20% of Base OT pay, calculated on any hours over 1,900 billable client service for the year. (They allow a grace of 40 hrs for trainings/non-billable to find your next chargeable project.) Paid out 25% in August and 75% in February. 401k employer match 50% of up to 6%. Carlyle Group investment prestige. If you were unhappy with...

    Inconvénients

    Better base salary is offset by high cost of benefits. Compared to Big 4 and several other companies, the premiums are exorbitant. There is no intermediary cost step between individual or family plan. They changed from BCBS MA to Aetna and I noticed decline in my coverage, and increase in out of pocket costs. Only 8 holidays (including 1 floating holiday) and 15 days PTO. Increases to 20 after 6 years. Can carry over...

    Conseils à la direction

    Evaluate whether the company has provided each of its employees all of the necessary resources to succeed or just a select few.

    Avantages

    - OT comp. structure that is available for everyone to take advantage of - Promotions are merit based, which is huge. I was promoted from consultant to manager in less than year - Collaborative work environment - Constant stream of challenging projects (IPOs, M&A, carve-out accounting, implementation of accounting standards)

    Inconvénients

    The biggest downside is on getting everyone connected, since as Consultants we are constantly out on the field. The firm does put together quarterly social events in order to get everyone together.

    Conseils à la direction

    As the firm grows, I would start to focus on cultural aspects of the firm.

    Avantages

    Friendly, ambitious colleagues Diverse project experience. Including technical accounting, M&A due diligence, system implementation, interim accounting, and others. Opportunity for growth in your career and within CFGI Strong financial backing with sight on exciting growth One of the top spots in my opinion to land after a stint in the Big 4

    Inconvénients

    Your schedule can be unpredictable but that's frankly expected in this nature of work.

    Conseils à la direction

    A tweak to compensation structure could help align incentives.

    Avantages

    - You will get exposure to a wide variety of projects and clients across various industries - ranging from "transactions" work to systems data entry work, and from biotech firms to cloud computing companies. - Great stepping stone for more rewarding opportunities in industry based on experience with CFGI (especially since The Carlyle Group acquisition). - Work/Life Balance is tons better compared to Big 4. - Base...

    Inconvénients

    - VERY unpredictable schedules. Not much direction given about what to do during "available time" - culture is such that you still need to come into the office and awkwardly pretend to be busy. - Benefits are just terrible: Insurance is around 65% more expensive to employees than Big 4. The 401k is not great and the "bonus" is a joke and NOT supportive of a high performance culture. No motivation to work faster or perform...

    Dérouler

    Conseils à la direction

    - Sort out the (many) issues with the pay structure. It's been said over and over again. - Be transparent about the actual type of work new hires will be doing. - GIVE some thought to what employees should be doing during "available time". - Offer opportunities to provide upward feedback.
