Employee Reviews

  • “Plante Moran holds work/life balance as a high priority. As professionals, we are able to do what needs to be done to create the balance we need. Communication is key, but the opportunity is there.”

  • “The firm really has a good understanding of work/life balance. I think that there is the understanding that during busy season you will be working more than usual, but nothing like 100+ hours. There is a huge stress on communication if you feel like you are drowning and need help. They also really stress the importance of taking time off and actually utilizing FTO. As a new hire, I feel like I shouldn't be taking time off, but I was even reassured by my partner that I can and should take time off. The firm really cares about their staff and wants to ensure that we are at our best to be able to perform at our best.”

  • “Firm philosophy of ‘the whole person comes to work’ and ‘workplace for your day’ provide plenty of flexibility and support to staff, allowing us to work from home when needed and adjust our hours when life situations necessitate it. On the other hand, having our team spread across multiple office locations makes it more challenging to build strong team connections.”

  • “We have a flexible time off policy. They treat us like adults. We know we have work to do, we get the work done, and we have total autonomy otherwise. I NEVER feel ‘tied’ to a desk nor am I forced to come into the office just for the sake of it.”

Getting Hired Here

  • “After I applied, Plante Moran contacted me promptly and I went through a few different interviews over the next couple weeks, which were all well planned out according to my schedule. I think the ideal candidate this firm is looking for is someone who is not necessarily graduating with a 4.0 but is willing to learn and work to improve each day. We also have a ‘jerk free’ culture, so we’re also looking for someone who is respectful and kind to those around them and willing to help other firm members.”

  • “We look to have speed and clarity in the hiring process. We have same-day offers that the partners deliver personally over the phone [to campus recruits]. We mostly hire candidates straight off campus that look to obtain their CPAs, are organized, demonstrate ownership and leadership ability, and have strong problem-solving and communication skills.”

  • “After you apply for the job, Plante Moran is great about getting back to you quickly to set up an interview. The interview lasts for around an hour to an hour and a half with two different people within the office that you’re seeking to work at. In my experience, I received a phone call within a couple hours from the partner, telling me that I got the job. They are very understanding regarding the time to make the decision, especially if you have multiple job offers on the table. They are always willing to answer questions and help whenever it’s needed. The ideal candidate is someone who has some background in accounting (i.e., a college degree) and someone who is hardworking and willing to learn. They also must fit into the culture of the firm, which is accepting, considerate, and always open to new things.”

  • “One phone interview with HR, two Zoom interviews (one with a principal, one with a partner). I applied in April for August start and was sent an offer by mid-May. I believe Plante Moran is seeking people who are coachable and enjoy being a part of a team and of service to others. My interview process was more discussion on collaboration and personality rather than technical questions or quizzes.”
