Last Friday I buried a link about the IRS’ latest hiring push in Footnotes but I think it deserves its own little mention if only to discuss the pay. That’s all that matters, right? Before we get to that, my handlers have asked me to remind you that Footnotes is a weekly wrap-up of accounting […]
Outside of press releases about the IRS Criminal Investigation Unit busting people for money laundering and reminders that the taxpayer advocate released her latest lengthy report to Congress about how well (and not so well) the IRS is doing, we don’t get a lot of email from everyone’s favorite parody video maker. But buried in […]

Louisville Business First reported on Sept. 6: Ernst & Young LLP is making another investment in Louisville after spending $4.3 million to open its National Executive Assistant Team facility downtown early last year.

Not Kansas City, KS, but Kansas City, MO, where in July 2020, RSM will be moving into a swanky new office space currently being developed in Country Club Plaza. RSM will occupy all of the ninth floor and half of the 10th floor in the 14-story, 214,000-square-foot office tower that will be called 46 Penn […]
Hey, auditors! How confident are you that you wouldn’t royally screw up auditing the financial statements of a well-known U.K. cafe chain and could uncover a £94 million accounting fraud? Pretty confident, eh? Well, you couldn’t do much worse than the dolts Grant Thornton U.K. had handling the audit work on Patisserie Valerie’s accounts. While […]
Whoa, if you haven’t seen by now, the Queen’s PwC announced some pretty big news earlier today. The Wall Street Journal reported: Professional-services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP on Wednesday announced various measures aimed at overhauling its U.K. audit business, amid growing regulatory concerns about the quality of the country’s audit sector. PwC, one of the Big […]

Back in November, EY and Tennessee state officials made a big to-do about the Big 4 firm signing a lease at a new 10-story office building being constructed in the Music Row district of Nashville. And during that press conference, EY announced that it would be adding 600 jobs in Nashville over the next five […]
Claire Bushey reports in Crain’s that KPMG Chicago plans to hire 500 people over the next 3 years after hiring 500 people over the past 5. In my vivid imagination, Rahm Emanuel told them, “Quit fucking sandbagging.” In any case, the House of Klynveld’s growth doesn’t match a couple of its local Big 4 peers: […]
About 450 of them, in fact. EY will fill them over the next four years amd lots of those "will be in information technology and financial consulting." So if that sounds interesting and you don't care that the hometown football team only has two playoff appearances since 2000, pack your bags. [FTU]
A recent survey from Information Technology Alliance found that accounting firms are almost as desperate for IT people as they are accountants: “The demand for qualified IT staff within accounting firms is at an all-time high across the accounting industry,” said John Bowles, chief information officer for Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP in Charlotte, North […]

Could someone please notify a certain Bloomberg BusinessWeek editor? Ernst & Young LLP plans to make roughly 10,600 hires in the U.S. during fiscal year 2014, the company told eFinancialCareers. The Big Four accounting firm is looking to recruit 6,300 students while making 4,300 experienced hires during the fiscal year, which began in July. The anticipated […]
~ Update below includes a few more specifics provided by a PwC spokesman. What's this? A report about an accounting firm moving into a larger office space and hiring more professionals and NOT some insufferable trend piece about people studying for an exam at the beach? Incredible! Yes, in this little blurb from the Boston Globe about […]
Last Friday while I was poorly navigating North Carolina, a tipster passed along an enthusiastic message that he received from a Grant Thornton National Talent Acquisition bounty hunter. And from the sounds of it, GT wants some fresh faces in their forensics group:
We've grown accustomed to Big 4 people dropping huge hiring numbers in order to get oooohs and ahhhhhs out of media people and Joe Echevarria was on Bloomberg TV today doing more of the same: Sara Eisen: Are you picking up jobs from Wall Street as Wall Street sheds and shrinks? Joe E.: Absolutely. We're […]
The PBJ reports that KPMG, Deloitte, PwC, Grant Thornton, Moss Adams and a whole gaggle of other firms are looking for people that have graphic design backgrounds. Ha! No, that's a lie. They want accountants. Everything from staff right out of school to senior managers that work in assurance, tax, and even consulting. As long as […]
Yesterday, the PCAOB held an open meeting discussing its plans for being the most dominating force in public accounting regulation over the next few years. Within these plans is a strategory to not just be the type of regulator that points out the things that you royally fucked up, but also to be a resource […]
Yeah, there are doubters, but that doesn't mean Black and Yellow isn't going to try like hell to turn this thing around. In addition to the hires in the U.S., E&Y is trying solve employment problems around the world: Tens of thousands of financial services jobs are going in London according to the CEBR. […]
Unemployment in the U.S. is a problem. This is known. Many of you are doing your part by not being unemployed. Good work! You're not part of the problem! Unfortunately, the lot of you are not able to hire hundreds upon hundreds of people and that's what we kinda need. Thankfully, professional service firms like, […]
It's obvious that Rahm Emanuel loves accounting firms (certainly more than teachers). Either that, or he knows he can curse them into submitting to his policies for job creation in the city. KPMG is the latest firm to make announcement in coordination with the Mayor's office; The HoK will be hiring 500 new employees over […]
Under Governor Dannel Malloy's "First Five program" if Deloitte adds (and retains) enough green dots in the Constitution State over the next 5 years, there will be a nice little bonus in it for them: Deloitte will retain the 1,153 existing Deloitte employees in the state, according to a news release from Malloy's office. The […]
P. Dubs is looking to add 400 new capital market servants for their Dallas and Forth Worth offices. Interested parties should have the following qualifications: 1) a history of excellent client service; 2) top-notch analytical and communicative skills and 3) the ability to work in tight quarters when warranted.

Busy season is right around the corner and for many auditors, that means hating your life a little more than usual. KPMG is acutely aware of this, and in order to help lighten the load this year, the firm is hoping you know some high quality auditors who won't mind grinding out three months of […]
Much like E&Y, GT’s Chicago office is looking to get more asses in the seats because business is swell:
Grant Thornton LLP said it intends to add 140 jobs in its Chicago office next year, 80 of them entry level and 60 internships, most of them paid. Similar hiring this year was less than 100. According to a press release and a spokeswoman, the new hires are needed because the firm’s business is growing. The hires will work in “nearly every area” of the firm, including audit, tax and consulting.
Unlike E&Y, Hizzoner was not attendance:
[T]his announcement was not made by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who has unveiled several somewhat similar moves by other companies in recent months.
Always a bridesmaid, GT. Always a bridesmaid.
They’re looking to fill 500 JITs with new Black and Yellows by June of next year.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced the jobs on Tuesday, saying the firm will start hiring immediately and hopes to have all the positions filled by June. Ernst and Young currently employs about 2,000 people in Chicago. The hires will be diverse across experience levels and include support workers.
Just remember that E&Y seems to be upgrading the gene pool, so uglies need not apply.
You may remember that the Big 4 have BIG plans to go on a hiring binge here in the States and around the globe over the next few years. Just last year, Deloitte announced that they were adding 250,000 new employees over the next five years (although we were a bit skeptical as to what the final numbers would actually shake out). The latest in job creation PR, comes from PwC who has announced that they will be adding 15,000 new professionals in Hong Kong and China:
Accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers plans to hire 15,000 graduates and experienced professionals over the next five years in China and Hong Kong, it said Tuesday, as it capitalizes on growing business opportunities in the region, particularly mainland China.
The Big-Four firm said the new hires will be “across all lines of service,” adding it hopes to recruit more than 2,000 university graduates in the coming months in Hong Kong and China. The company is conducting campus recruitment in Hong Kong and three mainland Chinese cities this month.
Adding to this glowing news was Fitch Rating’s vote of confidence in the Big 4 who “should inspire confidence in terms of corporate governance” in Chinese companies. Right. Because it’s been clockwork so far.
