From our people
“The caliber of the individuals I work with, regarding their intelligence and the manner in which they conduct themselves, and the standard of professionalism the company adheres to, makes me proud to work at Perkins.”
“I think it’s good that we face the public with something other than ‘we’re good accountants.’ There’s more to us. When I talk about my job I can be energized because I can talk about what a cool place it is to work and how great the people I work with are.”
“I feel like I can make mistakes here and the focus is on learning from them, not being punished. That was a huge shift from my prior employer and that has made coming to work everyday so much easier.”
Payroll & Benefits Administrator
“When I show my clients I care—by talking to them with respect and creating a friendship—I can really help them thrive.”
