Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP – Why Work For Us?

Why We Consider Ourselves Unique

Frank, Rimerman + Co. LLP is a unique, high-spirited team of professionals making creative and innovative contributions to our clients and our community. We offer an integrated array of specialized services not available from most CPA firms.

Our founder, Frank W. Rimerman, opened the first office in San Carlos, California in 1949. Robert D. Frank and Thomas W. Rimerman (Frank Rimerman’s son) joined the tax-based practice in the 1950s. Their focus on superior client service, mentoring staff, and stepping beyond the usual boundaries helped businesses grow and individual clients prosper.

Over the years, our firm grew to include four offices in Northern California. Over 65 years after its inception, we are a dedicated team of partners, managers, financial advisors, and associates equally passionate about our work, placing our clients at the center of everything we do. We work with some of the most innovative companies and thought leaders, offering tax consulting and planning, audit and financial reporting, investment advisory services, and outsourced accounting support.

We pioneered the family office services concept and wrote the book on Sarbanes-Oxley. We also deliver litigation supportstrategic consultingrisk management and valuation servicesfinancial software advice and implementation, and specialized financial and research services for the wine industry.

We are a local firm with global reach, adapting to the fast-paced business environment with deep knowledge and the same personal service offered by our founder.

Frank, Rimerman + Co. LLP is committed to being the premier accounting firm in the San Francisco Bay Area, and regards its employees as its most valuable asset. We strive to create a work environment built on fairness, respect for one another, and pride in the firm we build. As a result, the firm attracts and retains top talent in our industry.

We develop people into our future managers and partners. Our partners take active roles in developing the skills and promoting the careers of each associate. Everyone is encouraged to shape a career that satisfies his or her needs while continuing to be challenging and engaging.

Our internal training and development program provides a streamlined process for identifying and attending classes, seminars, conferences, or workshops for professional and educational growth. It also ensures that our people meet or exceed the accounting profession’s continuing professional education requirements.

Though we occasionally add more experienced people to the firm to add to our practice’s expertise, we primarily promote from within. In fact, 21 of our 28 partners either started their career at Frank, Rimerman or grew into their partner role while working here.

Our continued growth and expansion creates career opportunities at all levels and in all departments of our company. We emphasize the sort of teamwork that brings out the best in everyone. Our work is challenging, we enjoy it, and we enjoy working together.

New associates say their decision to join us was based on the enthusiasm and positive energy they felt during their interview process or internship. We offer direct hands-on learning and the chance to complete more than twice the continuing education required by professional standards through our comprehensive training programs. We also consciously mentor staff to help them find the best fit for their practice specialty.

    I have been working at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP full-time (More than 5 years)


    Incredibly warm people, employees are friends, consistent/reliable opportunities, fun events, fantastic culture and humble values, professional environment, flexibility to find the role best fit for you


    Comp will need to increase across the Firm to compete with other Bay Area opportunities, esp in industry/tech; underperformers are kept around too long and it impacts morale

    Advice to Management

    Pay people the bit extra to keep the best talent engaged and committed. Faster firm-wide decision making processes.
