Great Company To Learn & Grow as a Professional
Staff Accountant (Current Employee) –  Kingston, ON31 August 2017
Great place to work, friendly and helpful coworkers. Every day has something different, from various personal and corporate tax issues, to accounting related issues and file preparing. While hours are very busy during personal tax season, the freedom gained during slower times in the summer and fall more than make up for that busy season.

While taking professional designation, senior staff are very helpful and supportive, willing to answer any questions with both material and the process.
Pros
Great work environment, challenging work

Job Culture
Environment that is supportive of your professional growth and treats you like family
Manager (Current Employee) –  Durham Region, ON23 August 2017
A typical a day of work would consists of preparing year-end files, a mix of audit, review and compilation files. Learning is highly encouraged and promoted. You are asked your interests and allowed to participate in professional development courses to further your interests.

Management always has an open door policy and encourages corroboration with management throughout file preparation.

Workplace culture is one of accountability and celebration. People are held accountable for their actions and are celebrated when jobs go well or for major life events.

The hardest part of the job is busy season hours. You may need to work up to 60 hours a week, but this is offset during the summer by 1/2 day Fridays and an annual Christmas closure.
