Where to launch your accounting career is an important decision. That’s why it is always wise to explore the pros and cons of each offer you may receive and carefully weigh your options. Through questions and interviews, learn what truly differentiates one firm from another. As you compare your offers in the months ahead, we ask you to remember this: Berdon Smart. Berdon Heart.
Simply put, Berdon Smart refers to the fusion of two disciplines — accounting and law — that exists at Berdon. The majority of our tax partners hold J.D. and LL.M. degrees, as well as the CPA certification. Other partners and principals hold the MBA degree or additional certifications. The professionals at Berdon never stop learning.
Berdon Heart refers to Berdon's benefits program, which matches or exceeds that offered by many firms. But here's where the difference lies: at Berdon, those benefits are extended to you and protect you from the first moment that you come to work. There is no "limbo" period or waiting period before you qualify to be a part of these programs. You come to work. You are covered. You are eligible. That is Berdon Heart.
As you evaluate firms, consider the following:
At Berdon, you will be more than a number. We value each individual and provide the exposure, experience, and guidance needed to help direct your accounting career. You will be assigned a buddy who can answer your questions or point you to the people who can.

You will receive training not only as a public accountant, but as a true business advisor who understands the client’s big picture needs.
But don’t just take our word for it.

Also significant is that you will be enrolled in Berdon’s excellent benefits package from Day 1 of your employment — there are no waiting periods.
