Employee Reviews

  • “Public accounting has long hours, but the firm provides many mental health and other similar benefits to support employees. Vacation time is encouraged. I’ve never had a time off request denied and have actually been encouraged to take more.”

  • "With any public accounting role, there is a period of time in busy season where hours are long and work/life balance is minimized. However, outside of that season (January to April), RSM is very good at promoting time off and re-energizing ourselves, physically and mentally. I am able to attend my son’s events, even in busy season, which is important to me as a parent—we need to be present in our kids’ lives. I take about seven weeks off in total, from PTO and paid holiday time collectively. That is nearly two times more than any firm in industry.”

  • “The firm provides flexibility as long as you meet the chargeable hours goals. The firm has become stricter with its policies to ensure efficiencies. Added administrative tasks have increased the burden on professionals—people now have to juggle administrative work, client work and their personal lives.”

  • “I have a very flexible schedule that allows me to take off when I want, as long as work is being completed in a timely manner. As with any public accounting firm, there are times of the year that are much busier than others. However, the flexibility of the job outweighs the long hours.”

Getting Hired Here

  • “Interview process includes a series of interviews with managers and partners, after which we deliberate and determine if we should extend an offer. Ideal candidate is one who can portray willingness to learn and is able to maintain a conversation. Soft skills like communication and effort are higher on the list of priorities than past achievements (although past achievements are not unimportant).”

  • “Interview and callback process is robust. We are interviewing throughout the year for intern and new hires. We even interview for interns at the sophomore level. We are seeking strong candidates who possess a positive attitude and good communication, time management, and leadership skills. We are also seeking those who are curious and can adapt quickly and apply what they are learning.”

  • “During the interview process, candidates get to meet multiple people within the office to get insight into the culture. Ideal candidate would be knowledgeable and eager to learn and enjoys being involved in office activities.”

  • “The firm has made decent improvements in the interview and callback process to lock-in ideal candidates. Ideally, we look for smart, driven, curious and inclusive candidates to be a part of our firm.”
