Room to Grow
Did you know that TYS was selected to the 2010 Best Accounting Firms to Work list? Our vibrant and innovative firm attracts top talent and delivers great results. We strive to cultivate a healthy work environment that encourages collaboration, communication and growth. If that sounds like corporate speak, then let our employees explain what it’s like working here. They’re the real experts when it comes to TYS.
Melissa Doty, Senior Accountant, CPA Boring Accounting Firm? No Way! “Working at TYS is a gratifying experience. We’re trained to recognize the financial clues that may reveal fundamental issues facing our clients’ businesses. For example, maybe a client’s cost structure is out of balance. Or maybe they need a process to help collect more money up front. Solving meaningful problems for our clients never gets boring.”
Eric Yeoman, Manager, CPA, CFE We Count Results, Not Time “Unlike most accounting firms, at TYS we don’t bill our clients for every minute we spend on their projects. We have an annual contract that allows us to focus on getting the work done, answering client questions or coming up with new ways to support them. That frees us up to do our best work – and also helps build healthy relationships with our clients. They don’t feel the pressure of the clock ticking on every phone call or transaction. It’s a better way to work.”
Christel Whetstone, Sr. Accountant Kitchen Commute “We are an accounting firm that embraces change. For example, we work in a paperless office. This means I have access to my clients’ information from anywhere, anytime. So, there are no limits on when I can help them. Personally, this means that on some days my longest commute is from the kitchen to my home office!”
Melissa Wallace, Manager, CPA Wanted: Self Starters “TYS employees are self starters, willing to learn new skills and technology. The culture here supports those that are willing to put in the work to pursue a new area of interest or education. Employees are treated with respect and given opportunities to grow. If an employee is willing to put in the extra effort they will be rewarded 10 fold.”
Benefits That Actually Fit your Life
We don’t like to brag, but we do have some amazing employee benefits. That may be unusual these days, but then again, we’re an unusual kind of company. In addition to a fully-stocked kitchen and the occasional Wii break, here are the four key areas in which we focus our benefits: 1) Salary, salary replacement and retirement benefits 2) Wellness benefits 3) Qualities of Life benefits 4) Education and training. We treat our employees equally while understanding that they are all in different stages of their personal lives and may need differing benefits. For a full list of benefits please click here.
Future California CPAs
Anybody that soon will be graduating with an accounting degree or that is currently working on getting their CPA license knows that the rules for licensure in California have been a hot topic for quite some. One of our partners, Glen Thomas, is on the California CPA Society Accounting Education Committee along with UC Berkeley Professor Maria Nondorf. Professor Nondorf recently created a PowerPoint presentation which clearly presents the CA CPA licensure requirements. If you have any confusion regarding the new rules here is a link to Professor Nondorf’s presentation which should help clarify. Good luck to all you future CPAs.
