Employee Reviews


  • “The firm is busy year-round, as we are actively growing and expanding. Flexibility and work/life integration is the goal and it is promoted, and the firm continues to look at its offerings and adjusts to be more modern where needed.”

  • “The firm is flexible with remote vs. in-office experience. The firm makes it easy to make sure you don’t miss personal life experiences with your family while still be demanding to make sure that you are a top performer.”

  • “Best aspect: flexible work conditions—you’re allowed to work from home. Most challenging: Some weeks you work many hours, but that is expected during busy season. And it’s difficult at times to manage your workload outside of busy season due to new and varied engagements that come up.”

  • “Best aspect is the fixed amount of PTO and encouragement to use it. There’s some flexibility to carry over to next year, so there’s not the odd pressure of feeling like you’re going to lose something you’ve been saving and need to postpone a couple of days into the new year in order to service year-end client needs. The most challenging aspect is the staff workload ‘system’ is a little clunky and opaque, and it’s a little difficult to make sure workloads are appropriately distributed.”

Getting Hired Here


  • “Moves quickly, allows candidates to meet with a variety of stakeholders, clearly outlines roles and responsibilities. Looking for motivated individuals who can execute high level technical work and effectively communicate with clients.”

We are seeking hardworking, committed, and intelligent candidates who want to learn and grow in the public accounting industry.”

  • “We strive to get solid candidates in front of the people they will be working with and not draw out the process of making an offer. The practice staff are kept abreast of the offer extension and acceptance or declination, and encouraged to reach out to those candidates with offers. The ideal candidate wants to constantly increase their knowledge and responsibility and be comfortable with collaboration.”
