Growth is the word at Sikich LLP, a leading accounting, advisory, technology and managed services firm with locations in IL, CO, TX, IN, WI and MO. This Top 100 firm is committed to:
- Personal growth—Team members are encouraged to follow their passion, whether they are taking courses at Sikich University or exploring the firm’s varied specialties to figure out where they fit best. They are helped in this endeavor by the firm’s leadership team, who work with staff from the intern level up.
- Firm growth—Sikich prides itself on being innovative. New ideas come from across the firm and from all levels. No idea is considered too outrageous for exploration, and failure is viewed as a learning experience; just another step in the growth process.
- Clients’ growth—Clients’ successes are viewed as a reflection of the team’s dedication and technical expertise. That’s why firm leaders encourage staff to interact with clients from the very beginning of their tenure. The goal is teaching them to listen for what the client is really saying so the proposed solution is geared toward providing the best possible results.
This devotion to growth translates in “nontraditionally traditional” ways. Here’s one example: the level of trust between management and staff allows many decisions to be made at the team level, which allows the decision-making process to proceed at a pace not often seen at a 650-person firm. And another: Partners come from all of Sikich’s services areas, not just tax, audit and accounting. Two of the firm’s newest partners exemplify this. They are head of the firm’s B2B marketing and public relations division and its general counsel, who is responsible for acting as the firm’s chief legal officer and managing all regulatory matters related to the firm’s numerous practice areas.
The firm’s dynamic environment is perfect for professionals at all levels who enjoy a team environment that values and rewards their individual perspective and experience.
