Employee Reviews

  • “We work long hours on a seasonal basis, but there’s a lot of flexibility with schedule. Everyone’s treated as a professional in this sense and expected to get their work done, but we’re not micromanaged on work schedule.”
  • “I’m happy being employed by Cherry Bekaert and believe the firm’s future outlook is excellent. Although we do work long hours, most everyone in this office works together and gets along very well.”
  • “Good people to work with. Strong firm with great opportunities. Firm is focused on sales growth and expects business development from all employees.”

Getting Hired Here

  • “The firm’s interview and callback process is timely and professional. The firm has the candidates interview with a number of people at different levels (partner, manager, etc.) during the process. It can be lengthy. All the entry-level candidates tend to be interviewed on the same day. The ideal candidate is someone who can be groomed to be a partner. We’re looking for someone who’s a leader, ambitious, has good grades, and has the personality to develop business and help the firm grow.”
  • “Ideal candidate would be a recent graduate in the process of completing his or her CPA who is energetic and responsible.”
