Working with Us (Employment) Is Different

We support choice in the work/life balance and value our people, and our compensation structure, culture, and team perspective reflects this.

Flexible Compensation Structure?

We have an awesome compensation structure. Since our firm was founded to be more favorable to its professionals, we have a base pay. Are you good at managing your time? We’ll give you a bonus based on the client time you do. Are you efficient? If you work on a 20 hour client project but only spend 10 hours, we’ll pay you for 20 hours anyways. We don’t like public accounting because when the staff works a million hours, it makes the partners rich, and when the staff is really efficient, it makes the partners rich.

We’re intentionally changing our industry.

Flexible Work?

While initial time will mostly be in the office working with us so the professional may learn our systems, processes, and the little finesse we add to everything we do to increase refunds, and decrease tax and risk. After that, the new professional will be given a lot of flexibility to work from home or from any of our 9 offices throughout the Twin Cities.

Our last new hire noted she thought it was different when our scheduler called her and asked, “When do you want to work next week?”

We don’t need you to drive in rush hour traffic. We value your time.

We’re intentionally changing our industry.

Team perspective?

You’ve heard the work hard/play hard motto. That’s all good, but let’s raise the bar. Why just play hard when we can play awesomely? Instead of have an outing to a bar, which I’m sure we’ll do, let’s mix it up. Our professionals have to option to join as we got to improv, attend community events, go to social events, or other outings.

We’re intentionally changing our industry.
