Why I love Barnes Wendling CPAs

Barnes Wendling CPAs afforded me great flexibility with my schedule to allow me to earn my Bachelor’s degree and CPA license while working.  I joined BW in an Administrative role, earned my degree, and passed the CPA exam and as a result have been promoted three times in just five years!

Why I love Barnes Wendling CPAs

Barnes Wendling CPAs is a great place to work because everyone treats one another with respect. Coming from another public accounting firm where this wasn’t so, I found this to be refreshing. The leadership team members have consistently positive attitudes which has a huge, positive, impact on the culture of the firm overall!

Why I love Barnes Wendling CPAs

Barnes Wendling CPAs bends over backward to accommodate employees and that is what keeps me here.  When I needed time off for medical reasons, my position was held for six months without question.  My colleagues supported my husband and me and Barnes allowed me to return to work on a part-time schedule.  Flexibility with our start and end times is greatly appreciated as well!
