Over the last few weeks I’ve been running a survey from all of you.

I shared some of the results last week with 17 career concerns from fellow Bean Counter Readers.

Now I’d like to share some of the answers we received to the question:

“What are you looking for from an accounting firm or company you will work for?”

While I got 300+ responses, I’ve narrowed it down  some of the more popular and interesting answers.

Here are 15 things you want from your firms and companies:

  1. Great company culture
  2. Work life balance
  3. Advancement opportunities
  4. Great learning environment & training
  5. Care about me as a person, not just a “faceless employee”
  6. Enthusiastic employees who are excited about their job and the people they work with
  7. Ability to travel
  8. Stability
  9. Good benefits
  10. Good compensation
  11. Helps me to grow into the best professional I can be
  12. International assignments
  13. Staying current with technology
  14. Forensic accounting opportunities
  15. Community service

I’ll be using this and other responses I received for ideas for new posts, courses, and webinars.

To help me out, are there any of your career concerns that I missed?

Let me know in the comments.
