Spread your arms wide to take in the diversity of work you will touch as a manager in the Chicago office of this national business valuation practice. Work in every industry, every sector. Come to work saying, “I’ve never done that, but that’s going to change today.” Get a strong skillset in a short period of time. Avoid big firm politics and red tape. Get the respect and work-life balance you deserve.
You will spend roughly half your time in financial reporting, primarily PPAs. The remainder is business valuation for tax planning as well as business owners’ annual stock valuations. You will also touch ESOPs and a variety of nuanced projects that include derivatives and options. Your boss is the youngest shareholder in the firm, and is eager to help you be just as successful.
