Competition for Great People:  Why CFO Wins vs. Our “Competition” 

 

We understand that talented candidates have choices. We have built our company around the idea that we need to be a better alternative in the competition for great people.

 

If you are considering going to work for a CPA firm, here’s how CFO stacks up:

  • Ability to work on a deeper level with your clients.

  • Less formal, more friendly work environment.

  • Opportunities to make a real difference for our clients, our company and each other.

  • No travel. CFO requires that our work be done centrally at our office, enabling our clients to show up to work every day in the same place: their own office.

  • No tax season. CFO does not do taxes so there is no tax season requiring extreme spikes in working hours during certain portions of the year.

  • Less politics. Some CPA firms can be heavy on the politics. People at CFO don’t have time for that. People who enjoy politics can watch the Sunday morning talk shows.

  • Top notch tools and resources so you can get your job done. We provide a top tier IT environment, including a paperless office environment and dual monitors for each employee, as well as a full complement of support resources to enable you to do your job to the best of your ability.

  • Opportunity for advancement. We have no arbitrary requirements that our employees “put in the time” before they are considered for advancement. We offer opportunities based on merit. Period.

  • Great benefits. CFO offers a great array of benefits, including health, 401k, life, disability, dental and vision plans.

  • Work-life balance. Many CPA firms attempt to burn out their employees to see who “rises to the top”. CFO Network was founded on a principle that work is only one component of a happy and healthy life. We believe our long term success is based on having a full life, including family and other activities outside of work. CFO is committed to providing successful career paths that support a strong work-life balance. We are proud to provide a full array of benefits that are family friendly and to support a flexible work schedule for our employees.

If you are considering going to work for a private company:

  • More variety. At CFO you will work on a variety of tasks and be involved in a variety of companies and industries. Private companies can be limiting in terms of the scope of work and the degree of specialization required of the job.

  • Work as part of a team. Compared with many private company environments, at CFO you will have a team of like-minded accounting and finance professionals supporting you.

  • More opportunity for advancement. Many private companies have limited opportunities for advancement, especially with smaller, family owned businesses.

  • Strong managerial support. At CFO you will have the benefit of being managed by an experienced and supportive professional committed to your success in your chosen field. We know what finance and accounting people need to be successful.

  • Less politics. Private companies can be heavy on the politics. People at CFO don’t have time for that. People who enjoy politics can watch the Sunday morning talk shows.

  • More challenge—just right. Some companies offer plenty of challenge. In fact just as many private companies offer too much… so much so that they burn out their people. Just as many offer too little challenges. Unfortunately it is rare that a company has a good balance between too much and too little.

  • A work environment tailored to accounting and finance professionals. CFO strives to maintain a more professional work environment tailored to accounting and finance professionals compared to many private companies whose work environments are focused more on their respective industries.

  • Top notch tools and resources so you can get your job done. We provide a top tier IT environment, including a paperless office environment and dual monitors for each employee, as well as a full complement of support resources to enable you to do your job to the best of your ability.

  • Great benefits. CFO offers a superior array of benefits, including health, 401k, life, disability, dental and vision plans.
