Advanced Staff Accountant
University of California, Irvine
"Since joining the firm, I have grown immeasurably, both personally and professionally. I am amazed at the influence that HCVT has had on my career, and I know that this is just the beginning."
“While I was in the recruiting process, I went to an HCVT event on campus. I still remember being surprised at how relaxed the employees were. Everyone seemed like they were genuinely being themselves, and that was what really drew me towards the firm. Amidst all of the busy season horror stories and anecdotes of toxic work environments, HCVT was a firm that felt different.
To me, HCVT is the perfect combination of a fulfilling career and a comfortable work environment. What I believe HCVT does better than any other accounting firm is investing in its people. Technical expertise is one of the core foundations of our firm, and the success of the firm reflects that. Everyone, from the partners down to the staff, will take the time to make sure you not only understand what you are doing but why you are doing it. I had only been at the firm for two weeks when I was put on a project with a principal, who sat me down and walked me step-by-step through both the project I was working on and why it was important in the context of our firm.
The partners at HCVT recognize that public accounting is a hard and stressful career at times, and they make sure to include comfort and fun in our daily lives. While I have worked my fair share of long busy season hours, I have also spent more hours than I can count at bonding events, celebrations, and other fun activities. In my time here, I have come to realize that the best part of my job, only second to the casual dress code for tax professionals, is the people I work with. When I am with my coworkers, it truly feels like I am working with friends, and that is something that motivates me to grow and be my best self every day.
Since joining the firm, I have grown immeasurably, both personally and professionally. I am amazed at the influence that HCVT has had on my career, and I know that this is just the beginning. From the partners to the staff, everyone at HCVT continues to motivate me to be the best I can be. Beyond accounting skill, the culture and community are what set us apart. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.”
