    Developing expertise: When I joined the firm in 1993, we didn't have expertise in serving homebuilders and construction contractors. I was around a lot of people socially that were in this field, and I made the decision to gain expertise in this area. I started one client at a time.

    I have been working at Hutchinson and Bloodgood part-time (More than 3 years)


    I worked at two large international accounting firms and came to this firm when I had a child. I have been working here for almost four years. The partners and employees are caring, intelligent, hard working, and kind. They believe in work life balance for all employees and help structure the office so that can actually be achieved.

    The technology is top of the line and I can securely remote into my work computer to access it from my home office. This provides me the opportunity to work efficiently both at home and at the office as I choose. The continuing education is good quality and employees are encouraged to build their technical skills by attending trainings .

    The office culture is fun with games being played on occasion such as office Olympics competitions and Bingo. The kitchen is stocked with snacks and drinks which I appreciate. Spot bonuses are awarded which is a great incentive. There is a star reward system where people award each other during the month for going the "extra mile" and award a star. One person is picked at the end of the month and that person as well as the person that gave the star gets a gift card. It contributes to the atmosphere of appreciating each other.


    Large international firms have a training that you go to for a week that has hundreds of employees. The firm does not have this. However, this con is overcome by offering employees the opportunities to go to outside trainings and conferences, brining in house quality education presentations, paying for masters degree, and being a member of an alliance network to get world wide resources.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the opportunities! I appreciate the interest that you take in your employees!
