Meet This Firm: Pershing Yoakley & Associates (PYA)

Pershing Yoakley & Associates

Meet This Firm is a series of video interviews featuring the best accounting employers across the United States for high performing accounting professionals and CPAs. Please enjoy this sponsored post courtesy of Pershing Yoakley & Associates, an Accountingfly Firm Partner. Contact Judy Schryver to learn more about firm partnerships.

“Not a traditional firm.”

“Nationwide healthcare consulting practice.”

“Energy of a startup.”

“Entrepreneurial focus.”

These are the words Catie Scott, Talent Acquisition Senior at Pershing Yoakley & Associates (PYA) used to describe her firm. She is genuinely enthusiastic about the possibilities for growth at the firm. “If you are someone who wants to be on the fast track,” she says, “you can do that. Firm leaders are very willing to add partners whenever someone is ready to join the partner ranks. There is no need to wait for a partner to retire so there is room for you.”

Although best known for its expertise in healthcare consulting, the firm provides traditional tax, accounting and assurance services to clients in a range of industries including construction, financial institutions and manufacturing.

“But that’s not all”, says Catie. “PYA prides itself on supporting entrepreneurial staff as well as being entrepreneurial in its own right. We understand how business works and that clients’ needs change with the times. Having a data-driven strategy is a part of how business plans are made these days. We make sure our staff understands how that works. This creates a learning environment that allows us to better serve our clients.”

Named a 2016 Top 100 Firm by Inside Public Accounting, this growing firm has five offices across the south and serves clients in all 50 states. If you are looking for a position in Atlanta, Kansas City, Knoxville, Nashville or Tampa, PYA may have just the opportunity you are looking for.

Recruiting: Considering the Non-Big 4 Employers

BelushiCollege.jpgAs recruiting continues this week, we’ll put out the idea of opting to starting your career with a firm or company as opposed to starting at a Big 4 firm. Regardless of the Big 4’s dominance of the BW list, there are several smaller firms that make good offers and all businesses need number crunchers to track all the bloody money.
And this year, since many of the Big 4 don’t appear to be making as many offers, going with a national or regional firm or private company becomes a serious option for many recruits.
For the recruits out there, are you giving serious consideration to taking a position with a non-Big 4 firm? For the rest of you, is starting your career at a Big 4 the only way to go or can relative happiness and success be found elsewhere?
