All work and no play? No way! 

We're #TeamBMF – of course!

Sure, teamwork is a buzzword these days, but how else would you describe a culture that encourages and rewards collaboration and support? We work hard and demand excellence from ourselves and each other, no doubt. But we also take the time to get to know each other on a personal level and whenever possible, provide a level of flexibility to our Associates that rivals the national firms. In fact, we don't use the phrase "work–life balance…" We're all about "work-life integration" – understanding that balance is a mythical ideal, while integration is achievable and allows us to always bring our whole and best self to everything we do. 

So in the true spirit of "Work Hard, Play Hard," our Associates take advantage of a number of activities that get them out from behind their desks and having some fun, such as:

  • Staff nights out
  • Community events and fundraisers
  • Mixers and networking events
  • Annual golf outing
  • Family events
  • After-busy season parties
  • Sponsored team sports

Accounting has been called the language of business. It is the way businesses talk about how they are doing with their investors, creditors, and those interested in the company. It is the job of the accounting firm to understand and frame what the numbers represent. That’s what most accounting firms do.

At BMF, we don’t represent numbers. We represent people. We represent the people behind the numbers – the owners and employees who work tirelessly for the success of their company.

Over our nearly 60 years in business, we have come to know that it’s the people who make companies grow and excel. Yes, businesses need knowledge, expertise, and sometimes counsel. Most of all, business people need business partners who are all-in, no matter what.

And that’s why we relentlessly focus on our clients and the relationships we have created over the years. It’s probably why so many blue-chip companies entrust us with their most complex business challenges. Because the only thing that exceeds our expertise is our genuine care for the success and future of our clients. And that’s a language we all understand.

BMF lives at the intersection of sophistication and service.

    Administrative Assist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Akron, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bober Markey Fedorovich and Company (Akron, OH) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was professional, light and enjoyable. I was taken into a very nice conference room by the receptionist and joined by one of the managers from the department. The HR director was supposed to join us but came in late as she was "in the middle of a long email trying to explain to someone that even if they aren't on the partner track, they are still a vital part of the firm." That was a bit of a red flag that I should have seen. TMI coming from the HR Director.
