Baker Tilly Named One of the 2013 Best Accounting Firms to Work for by Accounting Today

CHICAGO - Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) recently was named one of the 2013 Best Accounting Firms to Work For. Accounting Today and Best Companies Group created the annual list to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in the accounting industry. Baker Tilly has the additional distinction of being the largest national firm on this year’s list.

"We are honored our employees have once again recognized Baker Tilly as a best place to work," Timothy L. Christen, CEO of Baker Tilly, said. "Their commitment and hard work is what makes Baker Tilly one of the best accounting firms to work for. We are proud of our employees and our firm, and we are grateful for this recognition."

Accounting firms from across the country entered the two-part survey process to determine the best accounting firms to work for. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated firm’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top firms and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process, and determined the final rankings.

The Best Accounting Firms to Work For list comprises 100 companies. To be considered, companies were required to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business;
  • Be a publicly or privately held business;
  • Have a facility in the United States;
  • Have at least 15 employees working in the United States;
