Call for Submissions: Send Us The Worst Accounting Firm Recruiting Brochures You’ve Seen

Most of your offers are signed and many of you are ready to start at your new firms this fall but surely you've got some horrible recruiting brochures lying around that you'd love to show off. You know the ones I'm talking about; the smiling auditor hanging out in the jungles of Costa Rica, the snowboarder who is blowing off busy season to hit the pipe, the unnaturally diverse group of equally unnaturally happy accountants who love working together.

What the hell is up with the bird in the first photo?! Does Deloitte teach you to be an avian expert? Zoo hawk handler? Give you the bird flu? I'm so confused… And please, stop already with the clever phrases presented with comically oversized Scrabble pieces. They don't even MAKE numbers in Scrabble pieces, that's just stupid.

Oh God, I know this chick. The obnoxious gum-smacker. She already ruined a bunch of people's day at Prometric and now she's working for Reznick because they promised her a work-life balance and the opportunity to come to work in a hobo skirt she got for 40% off at TJMaxx.

Ohhhh I get it, BDO, you're all mysterious and cool and stuff. And weird. Really, really weird. Does this mean your staff have to go through a TSA screening machine every time they come into the office? I just don't get it.

So we know you guys have seen some pretty bad ones out there. Send us the collateral in .jpg, .gif, PDF or .png and if it's truly awful, we'll put 'em all together in one post so we can all have a good laugh at these firms' expense.

al pacino_devil.jpgIt’s rather mysterious that the New York office of Grant Thornton is located at 666 Third Ave. As I’m sure our more pious readers know, the significance of the 666 is commonly known as “The Number of the Beast“. We won’t get into any more specifics than that other than to mention that it is a pretty creepy-ass looking number.
Is G to the T run by a secret group of Al Pacino-esque figures that are working against the forces of good?
Maybe not but the otherwise boring-assness of that particular lobby is def working too hard to not be noticed…
