    I worked at SVA Certified Public Accountants, S.C. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The chance to learn from experts in a variety of fields such as tax, business advisory, trust/estate planning, valuation/litigation, healthcare, manufacturing, consulting, assurance, wealth management, real estate, and many others.

    Cons

    Objectives and standards are inconsistent and not clearly outlined. Challenges are typically faced using the "trial and error" approach. Technological advances to the accounting industry will be slow to adopt and develop here.

    Advice to Management

    Invest time in communicating clear expectations to staff, while allowing them into the company's vision.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at SVA Certified Public Accountants, S.C..

    Interview

    Relatively relaxed initial interview with HR, then second interview with hiring partner. Hired in October to begin work in January, so the interviews begin early. Make sure you dress to impress for the second interview, the hiring partner is not easily won over.

    Interview Questions

    • The initial interview was very different in the way that there were not many questions, mostly just chatting about accounting topics. The second interview had all the standard questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, set hourly rate
