Vicenti, CPAs Selected to Nationwide Top 100 “Best Accounting Firms to Work For” List for 4th Consecutive Year, 1st in California among Midsize Firms

DECEMBER 7, 2015 (Glendora, CA) Vicenti is proud to announce that the firm was once again selected for the nationwide 2015 “Best Accounting Firms to Work For” list, which is limited to only 100 public accounting firms nationwide.  This list is created annually by Accounting Today and Best Companies Group in order to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the accounting industry. This is Vicenti’s fourth consecutive year on the list.

Vicenti not only achieved selection to this top nationwide list, but also was ranked 4th in its category of “midsize firms” (50-249 employees). Among California CPA firms in the midsize category, Vicenti ranked 1st. The firm was ranked 10th on the list in the two previous years and 15th its first year on the list.

According to the AICPA, currently there are over 46,000 public accounting firms in the United States ranging in size from small local accounting practices to large international CPA firms, so selection to the Accounting Today list is quite an honor. The “Best Accounting Firms to Work For” list selects a total of 100 public accounting firms nationwide, which are divided into three groups based on firm size.

“We are pleased and honored to receive this ranking and recognition,” said Linda Saddlemire, Vicenti Managing Partner/CEO. “We have now been on this list for four consecutive years, and each year we take into consideration employee input and make continuous improvement a priority. Our motto at Vicenti is ‘extraordinary performance, enriched lives,’ and we strive to fulfill that motto in all that we do for both our clients and our employees.”

The full list was published in the December issue of Accounting Today. The assessment for this program involves a two-part survey process. The first survey, completed by the employer, evaluates the firm’s overall culture, assessing areas like flex hours, health care coverage, retirement plans and offering paid time off for volunteering or community service. The second survey, completed by the employees, analyzes areas including corporate culture and communications, work environment, training and development, pay and benefits, and role satisfaction.
