When our clients are facing complex finance and controllership issues, they look to us to get it right. Whether weighing the pros and cons of business transaction structure alternatives or tackling various technical accounting and financial reporting projects, we provide the answers to the important questions.
Our Financial Accounting Advisory Services (FAAS) team is growing exponentially, and as a Senior in our Technical Accounting Advisory Group (TAAG) group, you will play a key role in that growth. Working across all industries, you’ll develop your career by communicating creative, strategic goals both internally and externally. It’s all about listening to and understanding our clients to give them a truly exceptional experience in a field where there really are no off-the-shelf recommendations.
As part of our Technical Accounting Advisory Group, you will help companies manage the complex financial and accounting issues relating to consolidation and joint ventures, IPOs, business combinations, compensation, revenue recognition, derivatives and hedging, debt vs. equity, SEC reporting, leases, and much more. This is a highly visible role allowing you to work with a broad set of clients across the US firm, interacting directly with our FAAS and audit teams and clients. This is a truly unique opportunity to learn technical accounting at a faster rate and deeper level.

Occasional travel may be necessary as you will be meeting with key clients, some of whom are the most respected in their fields.
