Dedicated Teams, Client Relationships
“I’ve been here just over six years. I love the balance the firm affords for work and family life. That said, our dedicated employees are willing to help at any moment and go the extra mile in order to get the job finished. We have a great relationship with our clients and we’re constantly trying to stay ahead of the game.”
Supervisor, Accounting and Auditing (Iona College)
Interesting Work, Great People
“I’ve been here just over three years and my clients have varied from real estate, to jewelry manufacturers/wholesalers, to fast food franchisees. I’ve been exposed to both audit and tax work, giving me a better understanding of how businesses actually function. The best part has been the people I work with. My team is hard working and knowledgeable—which motivates me to be on my best game—not to mention a lot of fun to hang out with.”

Opportunities to Grow, Friendly Culture

Recognition, Flexibility, Trust
“In comparison to another midsized firm where I worked, Marks Paneth truly recognizes and appreciates employees' hard work. It also offers flexible schedules. If I have come to work later some mornings, I can make up my hours by staying later or working on the weekend. I always feel trusted to get my work done.”
