PKF O’Connor Davies Mission Statement
We exist to serve clients at a higher level – going beyond passive value protection to active value creation. We do this through relentless connections that drive efficiencies, uncover opportunities and eliminate risk.
Know Greater Value.
As our business grows, our commitment to active value creation both internally and industrywide has allowed us to do more to connect our clients to sound business advice, key players and resources across diverse sectors. This advantage is evidenced in our brand statement, “Know Greater Value.” It is also evidenced in our culture and represents who we are as a Firm. It’s what our clients expect from us and what sets us apart from our competitors.
Knowing greater value is not only our mission statement, it is a promise that our employees live every day. To fulfill it, we go beyond, reach for more and do all we can to uncover value in all we do.
Our value culture is a motivating one. Our professionals thrive on creating connections and pushing for better answers in order to solve problems, build relationships and connect our clients to what they need day after day. It is no accident that, at PKF O’Connor Davies, our lead Partners are actively involved in the day-to-day management of engagements, adding value for both our specialists and clients. We take great pride in our culture, the internal tools and resources we provide to help our employees own their careers and increase their individual value through professional development.
Our value culture is entrepreneurial. Our team members are committed to a higher standard -- they are industry specialists with the right mix of passion and professionalism, acumen and accountability, always seeking to go beyond and do more. Through our value culture and industry connections, our talented teams drive efficiencies, uncover opportunities and manage risk. As a result, we deliver value where others can’t and define success by the value we bring to our clients.
Our value culture is non-hierarchical. We don’t operate in closed channels. As a mid-sized firm, we are nimble, allowing us to serve our clients with greater effectiveness and responsiveness than larger firms typically can, while still ranking among them as one of the top and fastest-growing public accounting firms nationwide. Combined with our technical expertise, this agility equips us to enhance the services and solutions we bring to our clients. These advantages are integrated into all that we do and central to our success.

Be the GOAT. Step up to Opportunity.
G.O.A.T. is an acronym for the Greatest Of All Time, most commonly used to describe athletes believed to be the best in their fields. At PKF O’Connor Davies, however, we use the acronym to signify the opportunities we offer for those who wish to be the best at what they do in their chosen area of specialty.
There’s good…then there’s great. The difference is opportunity.

I worked at PKF O’Connor Davies full-time
Hands down the people. Everyone is also very willing to help and you learn A LOT. Work life balance is pretty good for the most part too.
No downsides, just your typical public accounting firm. Busy season hours are better here and flexible, option to work from home on Saturdays as well.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PKF O’Connor Davies (Harrison, NY) in January 2016.
One on One phone interview. Then a group interview with multiple partners. After the 1 group interview, I was extended a job offer. Background check is invasive compared to other companies out there. My suggestion for partners, candidates, and HR would be, given the downward trending ratings on this website, to request additional interviews to ensure that it truly a good fit in terms of job and organizational culture.
