A bit about us:

We are a nationally recognized public accounting, consulting, and wealth management firm, consistently ranked as one of FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For.” We foster a “jerk-free” culture with the lowest staff turnover rate in the industry. Our supportive network of well-rounded professionals is excited to catapult your growth and help pave your pathway to professional excellence!

We embrace a "work for YOUR day” model which, simply put, meaning no one knows the best place for you to physically work better than you. Our staff choose their work location based on their individual day’s needs, and gives them the flexibility they need when they need it. If staff need to go into the office to collaborate, the space is there, and if they have a day where they need to focus alone, then staying home works just fine, too.

Why join us?

  • We value each individual employee and offer strong career growth potential based on ability
  • 20 days of vacation with floating holidays
  • Offer a work/life balance even during busy season
  • Work from home options available. If in office we offer occasional free lunches.
  • Social gatherings outside of work with co-workers
  • Large/complex clients
  • Family environment with supportive team with laid back culture
