Meet This Firm: Perkins & Co

Perkins & Co

Meet This Firm is a series of video interviews featuring the best accounting employers across the United States for high performing accounting professionals and CPAs. Please enjoy this sponsored post courtesy of Perkins & Co, an Accountingfly Firm Partner. Contact Judy Schryver to learn more about firm partnerships.

If you describe yourself as smart, curious and collaborative—in short, simply “damn good”—Portland, OR’s Perkins & Co might be the place for you to hone your talents and develop new skills and capabilities. With a partner to staff ratio of 1:6 or less, the opportunities for coaching and mentoring are readily available.

Paris Powell, who was recently named partner, said “I came to Perkins from a small firm. Ironically, the owner had worked at Perkins. Anyhow, six-months after I got to the firm a tax partner asked me if I was interested in working on business valuations and I said ‘yes.’ Little did I know that would ignite my passion and become the focus of my career.”

While flextime, telecommuting and current technology are part of the everyday ebb and flow at this forward-thinking firm, the firm’s physical space is also enticing and encourages collaboration. With a quiet room, a kitchen, large open gathering spots and standing desks as workday options, other companies have been known to use Perkins’ offices as a model for their own remodeling.

These examples of the perks of working at Perkins (pun intended) are indicative of a firm that is well-aware of what their employees want. The firm is small enough for firm leaders to notice you and large enough (about 115 employees and 27 partners) to provide the learning and mentorship you need to advance in your career.

If you are a CPA or recent grad who lives in the Northwest—or wants to—Perkins & Co should be on your list of potential employers. Watch our full interview with Paris Powell below. And to see all current job openings at Perkins & Co, click here.
