What does this organization do that makes it a place where people would want to work?

Employees are treated with respect and valued. Employees are encouraged and rewarded for working to their full potential. Professional training is consistently given. Friendly, safe, working environment.

Every day when I come into work I feel a sense of belonging. I am an associate at the firm and feel strongly that I would not have learned as much in the first few short months at a different organization, or felt the same sense of loyalty to my firm had I started somewhere else. Whenever I am given something to work on, although I have a sense of independence, I never feel abandoned. This is a key factor for a new hire with big aspirations.

I feel the company does an outstanding job communicating to the Team the companies vision and goals. It truly is a Team! They also really believe in work/home balance. They are committed to improving each employees career with ongoing in-house training and a mentoring program.

My colleagues are professional, friendly and helpful. My supervisor is a great person who I have a ton of respect for as a professional and a person. The firm has a great reputation and works hard to accomplish a specific level of excellence yet everyone is very relatable to the clients, regardless of size, income, etc.

Our organization is truly unique. Our leaders work really hard to make this a great place to work. We are encouraged to play large roles in our community and are supported in our furthering education endeavors. They focus on family work balance and I feel like they care about me as person. I feel like they care about my success and happiness. I am fortunate enough to have my dream job and feel blessed every day that this is the place I work.

Team atmosphere promotes learning and support. Someone is always willing to help you learn or achieve your goals.

The company cares about helping young accountants so much that it started a free in-house CPA review course to help all employees obtain their license.

The leaders are supportive. Positive feedback is given continuously. They show confidence in the team’s work and truly want its people to succeed. The people are nice. It’s not a dictatorship. People can speak their opinions and they are seriously considered. Birthday celebrations in office. Work anniversary cards with dinner gift certificates sent in the mail. Acknowledgement of accomplishments through the firm and in social media.

The organization supplies all the employees with the tools, the continuing education and a good atmosphere to work in. The firm works with the employees to insure that they are able to balance the work load with family life(even through the busy season). There is constant communication between management and the employees.

They make our company feel like a family. All managers/partners are always open for discussions whether it’s regarding work or a friendly chat.
