WHY I CAME BACK TO JOHNSON LAMBERT

November 30, 2015

In January 2013, I started working at Johnson Lambert (JL). From the day of my interview I knew JL wasn't your typical public accounting firm. The partners sported their ugly holiday sweaters (their words, not mine) and dogs followed their owners through the office. I started working for Johnson Lambert just a few weeks later. After beginning my first real job, it didn't take long to learn how much every person at Johnson Lambert was valued. This is why it was so hard for me to give my notice 8 months later...

COMMUNICATION IN THE WORKPLACE

October 2, 2015

When I began working at Johnson Lambert this past summer, I had an expectation of what daily life is like at an accounting firm. This was likely born in part out of stories from friends who had interned elsewhere, as well as from general stereotypes about accountants being dull, withdrawn people. However, almost immediately after my internship began, I saw that being a tax accountant wasn’t so solitary or dry as I might have expected.

STEP OUTSIDE OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

September 10, 2014

I may have been a little nervous, but also excited. There is something about beginning new life endeavors that brings excitement, but also the inevitable hesitation of the unknown that keeps your tension and natural defenses armed and ready. As the doors opened before me I was greeted by big smiles and welcomes. The internship had begun.

IS SPECIALIZATION RIGHT FOR YOU?

August 25, 2014

When I first chose to major in accounting, the versatility of the profession was a major factor. At the time, movies highlighting the value of accounting skills, such as “The Shawshank Redemption” and “Schindler’s List,” seemed to be around every corner. After graduation, upon joining Arthur Andersen in Boston, I was hit immediately with the choice between tax and audit.

May 21, 2014

How often do you reply to the simple question, “How are you?” by answering “Busy!”  Being “busy” seems like the new normal, even the new “fine.”  Everyone has a variety of demands relating to work, family, hobbies, etc. that make it tough to find the time (and let’s be honest, the motivation) to volunteer precious extra hours..

WOMEN AND LEADERSHIP

April 9, 2014

I recently read an article about the lack of women in leadership in CPA firms which, frankly, I had no idea was an issue. The article comments that, in CPA firms with greater than fifty employees, only 17% of the partners are women. This statistic surprised me because my experience in public accounting is vastly different from the norm.
