Life as an Experienced Tax Professional
Being a part of the AWD team as an experienced tax professional can be very rewarding as well as challenging. Every day brings new opportunities and tasks that constantly continue to develop individuals as well-rounded professionals.
A typical week for an experienced tax professional would include daily client correspondence and assistance, tax research and planning, tax compliance, scheduling, and staff development. An experienced tax professional works directly with clients as well as principals to meet our clients' tax needs.
AWD encourages their professionals to become well-rounded individuals, as well as well-rounded professionals. Work-life balance is very important to the firm. While overtime is typically required in tax season in order to complete our heavier workload, employees are encouraged to utilize all of their paid time off afterwards. All employees have families, and the firm is very sensitive to the importance of that aspect of their lives.
Of course, technical skills are necessary as well, and not to be ignored. There is a vast wealth of knowledge in the AWD principals and managers – and they are very willing to share their knowledge, as well as teach you in the process. Research and planning skills are constantly utilized as we have a vast variety of clients, and every day lends itself to a new lesson learned.
One thing made clear to any new employee is that there is an “open door” policy. No matter what level, everyone is willing to coach, assist, and teach other employees. This open door really promotes a team building culture in the firm. An experienced tax professional at AWD has the benefit of both mentoring less experienced tax professionals, as well as learning from the seasoned principals.
Whether it is training the staff, reviewing a tax return, or assisting a client with tax planning, day-to-day activity as an experienced tax professional at AWD is never the same and always a learning experience!
