401(k) matching.

Comments

The firm is growing every year. The work load is very appealing compared to big 4 or larger firms in which even during busy season, we are no where near 60 to 70 hrs of work each week. The firm covers all expenses relating to obtaining your CPA licenses and also other certifications as well. There are opportunities for travel if you are interested and also opportunity to stay within the St. Louis region if that is what you would choose.

If you want to build a career in the accounting / audit / advisory field, but do not fit the "big 4" mold - BSW can offer big 4 pay & perks & clients without the big 4 limitations.

They care about me (both professionally and personally).

Downers

We're growing so fast that inevitability some of that "family" culture will be diluted over time.

Comments

When researching firms... look beyond the "paycheck"... ask yourself are these the individuals you want to spend the majority of your day with. Will the organization invest in you and grow or change as the circumstances in your life change (single, versus married, children, helping aging parents, etc.).

Remember flexibility is a two way street. As the organization is accommodating to your needs, remember that the relationship needs to be reciprocal (working hard when you need to). Join a firm that you enjoy the people you will be working with as much as you enjoy the work you will be doing.

I did it!! I have found my place!

BSW is a great place to work. The firm is committed to their employees and treat them as their number on asset. The growth opportunities are immense. Work/life balance is an important aspect to our culture.
