Opportunity for Advancement
Great care has been
exercised in selecting and training our staff. Opportunity for
advancement is excellent because of our expanding staff requirements
created by the firm's diverse client base and continuing growth.
We believe in the benefits of a combination of formal and on-the-job
training and constantly strive for the most effective combination.
Entry level accountants are given one week of orientation training to
familiarize the individual with workpaper techniques, and computer
hardware and software used on the majority of our engagements.
On-the-Job Training: Entry level accountants work directly with
in-charge accountants providing them an opportunity for individualized
training and supervision. This direct supervision is supplemented by
the use of our staff manual, standard audit programs and forms, and
standardized working papers.
In-house Training: In anticipation of the tax filing season we
conduct periodic staff training sessions. At these sessions, small
groups informally discuss new technical developments, problem areas,
and plan the approach for the coming filing season.
Outside Training: The Firm participates in many professional development programs offered by state and national professional organizations.
Post Graduate Education: The Firm has a program under which we will reimburse accountants up to 75% of the tuition costs for approved graduate courses.
Mentor Program: Entry level staff are provided the opportunity
to be matched with a manager level mentor. The mentor program is an
informal structure to provide support, guidance and assistance for
staff through their career at the Firm.
Evaluations: Our training program is supplemented by an
evaluation process that includes interim and annual evaluations.
Through this program, individualized attention is provided to assist
each staff member in attaining the individual's professional goals as
well as meeting the firm's needs.
Starting salaries are highly competitive and are determined
individually, with educational achievements, business experience, and
other pertinent factors being considered. Regular wage adjustments are
made based upon the staff member's performance. Additional compensation
is paid for any overtime performed.
Fringe benefits include health insurance with comprehensive
medical expense benefits for each employee; group term life insurance;
paid time off; parking; profit sharing plan and 401(k) with employer
contribution; payment of professional society fees and dues; paid time
off to sit for the CPA exam; and the opportunity to pursue certificates

specialty. In addition, all employees may accrue one day per year, with
