Accounting & Auditing Services Group

If you can see yourself staying with your current employer for 5, 10, 15+ years, then you have truly found the place and people you fully confide in to help build your career and reach milestones you set throughout the journey of your professional career. I have only been with Cg Tax, Audit, & Advisory since January 2022, but I can honestly say this is the firm I would like to build my long and prosperous career.

I started as a governmental accountant working for a small firm and then became an experienced audit associate working for a top 10 firm, and finally moved up to a senior auditor working for the BIG 4. I’m grateful for the opportunities my previous employers offered me, but Cg has offered more in these short 7-8 months that I’ve been with them than any other employer ever has given me.

Cg offers a diverse professional experience and really supports a work life balance. I have worked with clients from several industries and led various engagements as the in-charge accountant. I’ve had the opportunity to develop a niche in tax services while working as a full-time audit supervisor. The firm implemented summer hours starting from the first week in June and ending in the first week in September which gives the employees every Friday off and requiring a minimum of 30-hour work week. This has given me the opportunity to enjoy time with my family and friends, and provided me the right amount of study time for the CPA exam. Working for the top 10 firms for 3.5-4 years, this opportunity was never offered once as the working atmosphere/environment is pretty much work work work. We work hard here at Cg, but time off also here is rewarded to us for our hard work throughout the year which is important to help prevent burnout.

I was heard and trusted from day one, and I’m grateful for all the support I receive from the managers, directors, and partners. The management team here takes part in the professional development of employees and looks for opportunities to facilitate their growth. I was offered the chance to become the ERC champion, as well as the intern committee champion, and was given a seat on our newly established Diversity, Equity & Inclusion committee. The opportunities here are endless, and you have the opportunity to move up quickly if you work hard and have the right initiative and mindset.

I’m happy to be part of such a great firm and working with some of the top professionals in the industry.
