"This firm invests heavily in their employees not only through training and advancement opportunities but, more importantly, by making sure we're happy here."

“Joining HCVT right after college was a no-brainer for me. When I first started the job search, I thought the prestige or size of a firm and a tight-knit culture based on the camaraderie between its employees was mutually exclusive. I held this perception up until the moment I was introduced to HCVT, and it was then that realized that I was wrong. I found that HCVT’s strengths lie in its development of a perfect hybrid between the career opportunities that present themselves in larger firms and the familial togetherness of smaller ones.

HCVT is a people-oriented firm, especially when it comes to their employees. This firm invests heavily in their employees not only through training and advancement opportunities but, more importantly, by making sure we're happy here. This commitment to the happiness of their employees who make up the foundation of the firm is the number one reason I chose HCVT over other firms. The partners understand that hard work and busy season hours are inevitable when it comes to public accounting, but they recognize that every day of work needs a bit of fun thrown in as well.

This internal investment is what makes HCVT stand out from the crowd to me. I love that I can talk to any member of our firm and know that we're going to get along. When going to work feels like you're going to hang out with all your friends, you know you've struck gold. No matter where my career takes me in the future, I think it's a safe bet to assume that few other firms can measure up to HCVT.”
