Weaver – Why Work For Us?


Get to Know the Firm That Gets to Know You

Why Weaver?

At our core, we’re a Texas-based, nationally oriented accounting firm with comprehensive capabilities. That means we do the things you’d expect us to do: traditional assurance and tax services. However, our philosophy has always been about doing more than expected. That’s why Weaver also provides a wide array of advisory services including risk advisory, financial advisory, IT advisory, energy compliance services, forensics and litigation, financial institutions consulting, public company services and specialty tax services such as international tax, state and local tax and private client services.

That’s what we do. But just as important is how we do it. Insight is at the heart of our approach. We start by making it our mission to understand our clients’ industries inside and out, with a special focus on financial services, energy, manufacturing and distribution, construction, technology, real estate and health care industries, as well as the public sector. It doesn’t end there; we get to know our clients’ business goals and challenges, what they want to achieve and what’s standing in the way.

This approach has paid off for our clients – and garnered our firm national recognition:

We’re proud to serve a broad range of clients, including private and public national and international companies, nonprofit organizations, government entities and high-net-worth individuals.

International Reach

As a member of TIAG® (the International Accounting Group), Weaver can extend its reach through a worldwide alliance of more than 115 independent accounting firms in more than 70 countries.

TIAG members worldwide are committed to developing global working relationships with firms that have roots planted firmly in the local community, with branches that reach around the world. This global approach enables Weaver to provide excellent services to our clients both in the U.S. and abroad.

We Take Success Personally

Our commitment to culture isn’t just talk. We have a dedicated culture committee, and its mission is to create a culture of excellence across the firm by addressing strategies that enhance our work environment, career development opportunities and the overall well‐being of our team members. From this committee to our local employee events in each office, our firm’s strategy and vision are driven by our culture day in and day out. You’ll see what we mean.

Our core values are the foundation of every interaction with our clients and with each other:

Hard Work is its Own Reward, But These Perks are Pretty Great, Too

We take the time to evaluate our employees’ wants and needs and invest our resources accordingly. Weaver goes beyond offering competitive health benefits, such as medical, dental, vision, disability, life insurance, and a 401(k) plan, to expanded benefits such as paternity leave, extended maternity leave, a flexible dress code and other flexible arrangements. An ongoing goal of our culture committee is to continually improve our benefits that put a priority on maintaining a healthy work-life balance, cultivating your professional interests and recognizing your value.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Weaver (Dallas, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Standard college recruiting process. On campus interview first, then office visit. On campus interview was pretty normal. Personality questions. There were no interviews during the office visit. After the tour of the office, they took about 30 of us to Main Event and then called 2 days later with the offer. It was a really fun process and I got to meet a lot of people from the audit and tax teams
