SENIOR TAX ACCOUNTANT - Public Accounting
The short story:
Opportunity for a Sr. Tax Accountant with depth in real estate / construction sectors to join a local CPA firm offering a great work environment and work / life balance. Opportunity to achieve Partner status.
The long story:
The 2017 tax season is starting to wind down, and you are finishing extensions and doing some tax planning with clients for 2018 filings. You’re researching the impact of tax law changes, and spending some time getting your CPE credits in.
You know how tax season goes with a CPA firm. Maybe you work now in tax for a CPA firm, and thrive on the pace and intensity. You love working with outside clients and understanding their situation and making it better. Sure, the hours are tough, but at the end, you’re proud of what you do. Help clients preserve their hard-earned assets and get them in a good spot for the next year.
It’s all the other stuff that bothers you. Missing your kid’s school and sports events. Politics with those shooting for Partner. A feeling that “more” is never “enough”. Too much work-life imbalance is starting to make you think there might be something better, but you don’t want to end up in corporate cube-ville either .
There is something better. Keep reading.
Our client is a small CPA firm in central Ohio focused on small to mid-sized businesses, not-for-profits, and individual business owners. They've been around for over a half century, and their reputation for trust and performance has helped them retain clients for decades.
Several positive events have transpired to create this opportunity, with partner potential in the future.
WHY THIS ONE:
What's different about this one? It's culture and environment. We interviewed a couple of folks at the firm to see:
"I like that there's no politics here. Everyone is open and honest, no pretenses, and no games."
"The Managing Partner sits just down the hall, and I see him all the time. His door's always open and I can just walk in and talk about a situation or ask a question."
"It's a real family-oriented company. If I need to take my kid to the doctor, I can do it and adjust my hours without being made to feel guilty about it."
"I came from a large firm where it was all about your boss making partner. Here, there are no ego’s - we all work as a team to help each other."
"We do all sorts of team and community things, like charity golf outings and helping our not for profit clients with their events and initiatives."
The two professionals we have helped them hire love it, and that speaks volumes.
