Sized Just Right
With a team of nearly 400, BlumShapiro is the largest regional business advisory firm based in New England providing accounting, tax and business consulting services. We have offices in West Hartford and Shelton, Connecticut and Boston, Braintree, Newton and Quincy, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island.
We're large enough to provide the resources you need to achieve excellence, yet small enough to present an environment that encourages your interaction with professionals at all levels of our organization.
Ethics and Integrity
BlumShapiro is dedicated to the highest standards of ethics and integrity. As required by our profession's quality control and oversight program, BlumShapiro has successfully completed quality reviews performed by independent CPA firms.
Our reach is extended internationally through our affiliation with Baker Tilly International, a global network of regional accounting and consulting firms. The firms in this network share a common professional philosophy: to provide resources like a national firm combined with the loyalty and dedication of a small firm. BlumShapiro partners and staff meet periodically with network colleagues to exchange ideas and discuss trends and opportunities. When we need resources beyond our expertise or geographic reach, we can depend on our relationship with Baker Tilly firms.
A Growth Culture
BlumShapiro encourages and nurtures professional and personal growth for our staff. Hands-on experience, mentoring and training can help you build a strong foundation for a rewarding career. At the same time, we provide the flexibility to fulfill your personal goals.
State-of-the-art technology will help you to work efficiently, allowing you to concentrate on high-level analysis. Frequent interaction with colleagues and clients will help develop your communication and leadership skills.
BlumShapiro boasts an atmosphere of professionalism combined with a personal touch. The firm maintains the highest standards for performance and integrity, without being too rigid. People at all levels work together in a collegial spirit.
Continued training will enhance your professional development. Specifically, staff training will give you experience in conducting an entire engagement, from planning through fieldwork, preparation of the financials and the post-engagement review. You will have the opportunity to select other in-house and external professional courses covering accounting and auditing principles, current tax laws, marketing opportunities, specialty practice areas and computer applications.
Support for Advancement
Our goal is to give you tools and feedback so you can be successful. At BlumShapiro, you will have an advisor – a manager or supervisor available to provide career guidance and offer periodic feedback on your performance.
After most engagements, you will receive an evaluation by the accountant in charge, giving you valuable counsel on your performance. Then twice a year, you will receive a full review, with promotions and raises awarded annually on the basis of merit and achievement.
We recognize that employees have lives outside of the office. Flexibility will allow you to fulfill your personal goals as well as meet family and community responsibilities.
Our part-time and temporary employment opportunities enable experienced professionals to remain current in their skills and knowledge while pursuing other interests and professional development.
BlumShapiro encourages employees to become involved in community and professional activities. Our employees serve on the boards of community and charitable organizations, and some are active in local chambers of commerce and professional organizations.
Within the firm, employees have annual opportunities to support Junior Achievement, Greater Hartford Arts Council, United Way and other local organizations through events such as our annual food and toy drives.
By participating in volunteer business and civic opportunities, our staff can give something back to the community and strengthen leadership skills.
