Frequently asked questions and answers about careers at P&G.
People say that tax season is a 24/7 grind. What’s the truth?
There’s certainly more pressure and a heavier workload at tax time than any other time throughout the year. But at P&G we recognize the importance of your home life as well. While your first tax season may produce some stress because it’s all new to you, the team concept and open door policy at P&G helps make it a lot easier. We do everything we can to make sure the increased workload is not overwhelming and that you have ample time for family, friends and relaxation.
How do I decide what I should specialize in?
At P&G there’s no rush to make a decision. Rather, we encourage our people to learn as much as they can about the different career paths available – tax, audit, business valuation and more. Before you make a choice, get advice from our partners, talk to your associates and profit from the hands-on experience you’ll have gained. It all adds up to helping you make the right, thoughtful choice. When you’ve decided, we’ll work closely with you to plan the career path that works best for you.
Am I going to be stuck at a desk or will I get to work directly with clients?
Don’t worry. We’ll have you working face-to-face with clients right out of the starting gate. It’s all part of our team philosophy. Every team player on a P&G client engagement has an important role in helping service, develop and grow the relationship. It’s an exciting, challenging and rewarding experience.
If I need help or want some personal attention, whom do I go to?
That’s an easy answer – anyone and everyone. While we value individuality, our firm thrives on teamwork. Everyone’s door is open — including all the partners — so you can get guidance or questions answered all the time. In addition, you’ll be mentored by some of the most respected professionals in the industry. We want you to succeed and are there to help.
If I have scheduling issues, will you work with me?
We’re well aware of the personal pressures today’s fast-moving world places on people. As a result, we’ll work with you to provide a flexible work schedule and, in some cases, allow you to work part-time from home. The P&G philosophy is to create a professional work place that respects the individual’s autonomy, freedom and flexibility.
