Careers & Culture
Are you looking for a forward-thinking, progressive firm committed to providing you with the challenges and opportunities needed for a successful, enriching career? While fee competition and the emergence of non-traditional competitors have left other firms stagnant and stale, McKonly & Asbury has experienced unprecedented growth and opportunity over the last several years. This translates into vast opportunities for varied experience and rapid professional growth for our employees. Knowing that our staff is our greatest asset, we have chosen and are committed to providing our employees with a work environment and compensation package other firms have yet to consider. As evidence of this commitment, we were named one of the Best Places to Work in PA for 12 years and as a Best Accounting Firm to Work For in the U.S. for five years.
We seek staff members who bring an inquisitive, analytical, and creative approach to client situations, and who can communicate effectively with our clients. Whether you are just graduating from college or are seeking a new and challenging career opportunity, if you possess the following qualities, we want to talk with you:
- Academic Achievement
- Dedication and Desire to Excel
- Demonstrated Leadership Ability
- Technical Competency
- Accounting, Auditing, and Tax Knowledge
- Team Oriented Approach
At McKonly & Asbury, we have all the experience of the larger, international firms while maintaining the benefits of a smaller firm.
Our diverse client and industry base keep our staff challenged and provide them with continuous opportunities to learn. Our employees regularly interact with clients, managers, and partners, promoting a collaborative spirit and challenging them to continually grow themselves and their careers. Additionally, early in their career with McKonly & Asbury, each of our employees chooses a Mentor whom they will meet with throughout the year to solicit advice and discuss their personal career track.
More about your career at McKonly & Asbury
We understand the importance of, and encourage a balance between professional, family, and personal life, and therefore, have instituted a policy of year-round flex time. Because the partners are committed to maintaining a friendly professional atmosphere and providing a balance with personal and family priorities, every summer we conduct a confidential survey (Annual Staff Feedback) of each of our accounting personnel in regard to our firm policies. The partners strongly consider the recommendations generated during the staff feedback process. Policy changes like our sharp casual dress code and personal time off policies are a direct result of staff feedback. Additionally, we believe in giving back to the community and continuously provide opportunities and assistance for our staff, and our firm as a whole, to get involved in community service and development projects. Many of our staff members serve on boards or committees throughout our community.
Making Work Fun
We enjoy rewarding our employees for their hard work and effort. Our in-office dress code is “Sharp Casual”. We save the suits for visits with clients.
We regularly celebrate our firm’s victories and achievements. Every year we have an “After Tax Day Off” to relax and celebrate another season of success. Our firm’s PEP Squad regularly organizes other events both in and out of our offices, to benefit our employees and also their families. Some of the things we do include an annual holiday party, summer picnic, sporting event outings, treating the office to ice cream, and after hours parties at the managing partner’s house.
We work hard but we play hard too!
The Right Tools
We are constantly updating our firm’s technology. Our firm is fully networked and all accounting staff are furnished with laptop computers. We have a spacious, smoke-free office, with a private work area for each staff member. We offer a defined curriculum of in-house and external CPE training customized to each professional’s current certification level and future development goals.
Getting Involved in the Firm
Our employees have many opportunities to work on teams with their coworkers and to become more involved with the inner workings of the firm. We encourage our staff to be on firm committees and to be involved in other firm efforts to ensure that their voices are heard, and to help foster relationships amongst our team. A sampling of our firm committees includes the Policies and Procedures Committee, the Wellness Committee, the Service Committee, and the PEP Squad.
