AccountingTODAY magazine released its annual ranking of the best firms to work for in the accounting profession. ATKG proudly ranked 9th in the nation. 2019 marks the thirteenth year the magazine has published rankings – eight of which ATKG was named to the prestigious list. According to Accounting Today one thing is abundantly clear, accounting firms have become much better places to work.
Although in 2008 only 60 firms made the inaugural list, that’s not the case of late. This year, 240 firms took the Best Firms survey which Best Companies Group conducts to compile the ranking and 100 firms were selected for the Best Firms to Work for list.
Large Firms Losing Traditional Advantage
No large firms made the 2019 list. Accounting Today attributes the first-time change to the fact large firms are being edged out as small and mid-sized firms adopt unique practices and cultures which set them apart. Melanie Kirk, Managing Partner with ATKG, stated “We consider it an honor be recognized nationally for our firm’s commitment to creating a fun, relaxed, and collaborative work environment”. She went on to say, “Our exceptionally talented team has a strong desire to shape our firm into the very best it can be”.by
