Vault Accounting 50: #31 – #40 (2011)

As we continue to mosey through this year’s Vault Accounting 50, we find a number of well known regionals in the #31-#40 range.

If you have any inside news, gossip, intern chicanery and the like for any of these firms, shoot us a message at tips@goingconcern.com.

31. BKD, LLP – Springfield, MO
32. Weiser LLP – New York, NY
33. Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP – Madison, WI
34. Amper Politziner & Mattia, LLP – Edison, NJ
35. LarsonAllen LLP – Minneapolis, MN

37. Novogradac & Company LLP – San Francisco, CA
38. UHY Advago, IL
39. Wipfli LLP – Milwaukee, WI
40. Beers + Cutler PLLC – Vienna, VA


Here’s the buzz from Vault:

BKD, LLP – “Competitive, well known”; “Opportunities for advancement adhere strictly to a set tenure schedule”

Weiser LLP – “Strong overall”; “In trouble, needed bailout”; “Great place for masochists”

Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP – “They’re moving up”; “Structured, suit and tie, no open-door policy”

Amper Politziner & Mattia, LLP – “Outside-the-box thinking is encouraged”; “Poor work environment, partners will throw you under the bus”

LarsonAllen LLP – “Progressive, growing”; ” ‘They do not reward’ those whose positions require more off-site time than others”

Anchin, Block & Anchin LLP – “Well respected”; “Benefits could [be] better”

Novogradac & Company LLP – “Large competitor in the real estate auditing business; specializes in low-income housing”; “Does awful work”; “Large tax practice, very little audit work”

UHY Advisors, Inc. – ” ‘More collegial and less hierarchical’ than at bigger firms”; “Diversity is ‘virtually nonexistent’ “; “In trouble, on the decline”

Wipfli LLP – “Partners are top tier for a small firm”; “Who?”

Beers + Cutler PLLC – “Pay is ‘well above the Big Four firms’ “; “Needs to have more diversity at the manager level”

And a bit of news on these firms in our pages:

BKD picked up Grant Thornton’s community hospital practice in Witchita, KS this summer and a partner died of a massive heart attack in his office.

Weiser announced their merger with Mazars back in the spring and we spoke with Weiser’s Doug Phillips about the combination.

Baker Tilly Virchow Krause merged with Beers + Cutler last November and they are also picking up the pieces at Koss.

• Amper Politziner & Mattia happily (?) became the second half of EisnerAmper.

UHY got out of New England

Discuss, deride and whathaveyou for the 31 to 40 crowd.
