At Porter & Sack, CPAs, work/life balance is more than just a phrase. We live it. Our employees will also tell you that we are not your typical accounting firm. Beyond knowing each other well, we know everyone’s family too. We welcome visits by our employees’ children including the run down the hallway to find mom or dad’s office. We work hard and are busy at times but we take time to laugh, share a story or catch up on what we did over the weekend. When our work is done, we go home, to the fitness center, a Badger game or a school related activity. Yes, we are a little different and that’s our goal.
Our collaborative, business casual environment is perfect for those who want to apply their skills to a wide variety of industries and business challenges while forming close relationships with clients and colleagues. At P&S, you will find yourself working on a variety of projects and seeing the majority of them from start to finish.
Even if we are not hiring at this moment, we always keep resumés on file for future consideration. So if you’re interested in working with us, now or in the future, please contact us or send your resumé to:
