 Due to continued growth, Brooks Lodden, P.C., a West Moines CPA firm is looking to hire experienced tax and audit professionals.  The firm has been in existence for over 60 years and is well known for its quality service and commitment to its staff.

In my opinion what makes the firm the best CPA firm in town to work for is:

  • Minimal Travel– The staff in the firm average less than 3 weeks a year in overnight travel. This is considerably less than larger firms where staff can expect to travel 20% to 40% of the time.
  • Opportunity for Advancement– There is tremendous opportunity to move up the ladder if you are the right individual.  Three of the five shareholders of the firm are 57 or older. If an individual can provide quality service, mentor staff, and help grow the practice this could be a great opportunity to become a senior leader in the firm very quickly.
  • Awesome clients and staff are decision makers– The firm serves middle market clients who need and want expert advice from the firm.  At Brooks Lodden, P.C. the clients want more than just an opinion audit or tax return, they rely on the firm and its staff to provide them with advice on strategic initiatives, growth opportunities, and managing risk in an ever increasingly complex world.  The firm’s staff get to be involved with business advisory type projects much sooner that at larger national firms.  The firm’s staff also have their ideas on how to improve the firm heard and acted upon.
  • BDO Alliance– The firm is part of the BDO Alliance which gives the firm access to a nationwide organization of CPA firms and the expertise and experience of one of the country’s largest CPA and consulting firms.  You will get the personal attention of being with a smaller firm but the learning and development opportunities of a large firm, the best of both worlds!

The firm is looking for quality staff and managers with 3 to 10+ years of experience.  If you are interested, please contact shareholders, John Lamale or Brent Alexander, at (515) 223-7300 for further details.
