Small local CPA firms? - Page 2

    I have no desire to work big 4 (I’m an old lady after all). But I would like to get some attest experience and upgrade my non-reporting license. Currently I’m the accounting manager at a small company.

    I met a guy who owns his own CPA firm through our kids’ sports activity. Emailed him my resume. Yesterday he called and really wants to get me in there doing the front desk (LOL!) I told him I am not looking to take a cut in pay right now and he said he could make this a hybrid front desk/audit/payroll whatever else is needed type job. He said currently he and the other 2 partners answer the phones.

    My question is this. Obviously nobody can tell me what they’re going to offer me or if it matches my salary. BUT has anybody worked for a small firm where the “Front desk” person ends up making a salary similar to a senior? I’m thinking not likely but open minded.

    FAR- 77
    AUD -49, 71, 84
    REG -56,75!
    BEC -75

    Massachusetts CPA (non reporting) since 3/12.

    I would say go for it if this works in your favor and the partners will sign off for you. Maybe ask them if they are able to have you do or go over the areas on the Attest form just to make sure. If they are flexible with your schedule that is great as well and makes a difference. Have you thought about finding a job that’s fully remote as well? There are CPA firms that hire fully remote employees you might just need to go through a job recruiter to help find it.
