    I have been working at Tatum full-time (more than 8 years)


    Tatum has a strong brand focus and client base for small, mid and Fortune 2000 businesses, providing CFO, Controller, Finance and Accounting professional services and search. Tatum also has a strong Healthcare practice with a Revenue Cycle focus. Tatum's business generation will typically provide project finance and accounting personnel ability to move from project to new project.


    Since acquisition by Randstad, Tatum has moved the Technology practice focus back to a regional level, integrated with the local F&A practices. Technology engagements tend to be related to F&A projects or existing client base. This has reduced the national account level projects. Randstad Technologies, a separate Randstad Company, is focused at the national and local levels and included global reach capabilities.

    Engagement Partner Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Tatum.

    Interview Details

    Even though you may know someone at a local practice office, you'll need to apply on the corporate site. Tatum is now owned by Randstad so the internal recruiters will be the first phone screen. Passing this screen you then will need to meet with the local practice office Managing Partner, other Client Service Partners, and key Engagement Partners. Engagement Partners are the ones who are the billable CFO, CIO and Controller resources. Questions will include your aptitude for business development between engagements, and sometimes after hours. So in addition to being an accomplished CFO, you'll also need to be comfortable meeting with other service providers in your geographic area - such as law firms, CPA firms, private equity firms, etc. Cross referrals from these providers tends to be the lead source for Tatum. Also, you'll need to be comfortable with fluctuating compensation given you won't be engaged 100% of the time, which is why this firm is great for people at that point in their career when they want flexibility for travel and time away from work.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult is the level of business development you're willing to do in this role, in addition to the regular CFO or CIO work.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    After passing a thorough background (criminal, credit, etc), then you will mainly negotiate with the local office Managing Partner for compensation.
