David sharing his team’s thoughts on client service at the firm retreat

With a culture that values each individual, and a diverse client roster that will keep you engaged year-round, Sharkansky is a great place to build your career in public accounting.  Top that off with an office easily accessed by Route 24, free parking and generous office space, and you’ll understand why we think Sharkansky has a lot to offer. 

As a member of the BDO network, we can focus locally and rely on our national and international member firms for resources to extend our reach.  We say “Solutions Start Here” because our clients call on us year round for strategic advice and well-grounded guidance as well as for their financial statements, bookkeeping, and tax returns.  It’s a source of great pride for us that they call us first when making a decision for their business or family. 

 

I believe Sharkansky strives to create an environment that people want to be part of. The partners truly care for the well-being of the staff and offer flexibility in a typically grueling profession. As a working mom, work life balance can be difficult to achieve but Sharkansky does a great job of allowing this balance. In addition, the partners and mentors care about the career goals of the staff and work with us to develop individual plans to achieve these goals. I have been a part of the Sharkansky team for 8 years, and have felt such growth in my career, and have had an overall positive experience.

Melissa Macdonald, CPA, Staff Accountant

I started working with Sharkansky in 2012 as an intern during my senior year of college and then transitioned to a full-time staff accountant role after graduation. Sharkansky has provided me with the tools and support to grow both as a person and as a professional. The highly talented staff here has made my transition from a student to an accountant a soothing one. Having the opportunity to work with such exceptional colleagues and clients makes going to work an enjoyable experience.
