According to this r/accounting post, OP recently passed the CPA exam and their colleagues decorated the office to celebrate. It seems the cunning folks at the Armanino office across the way spotted the decorations and went in for the kill.
To quote a commenter in the thread, “Fuckin recruiters these days man.”
For those of you scratching your heads (well, hopefully not, what with the CDC warnings about touching your face during Coronageddon 2020) wondering since when does Armanino have an office in Seattle, I’m glad you asked! It looks like they opened up shop a year ago, in fact the press release announcing the new office is dated exactly a year ago today.
So, happy anniversary Seattle office, and keep up those wholesome recruiting efforts. We wholeheartedly approve.
