Team Member Testimonials

Beyond the business of being one of the Nation’s Top CPA firms, Arnett Carbis Toothman LLP understands it is the devoted team members who have contributed to the wealth of our accomplishments.  We continuously strive to provide an atmosphere of fairness, growth, recognition, and development.  We celebrate successes and support team members in their life journeys.  Our team members are our most valuable assets.  Do not just take our word for it read what some of our staff have to say about working here.

"On a personal level, the people here at Arnett Carbis Toothman are very enjoyable to work with. However, what sets the team members apart from those at other public accounting firms is the amount of time and effort the supervisors and managers take to develop the staff’s technical skills and knowledge. Due to the nature of public accounting, the amount of work and deadlines can cause teaching and development to be neglected in an effort to complete engagements. However, management here at Arnett Carbis Toothman make a point to invest in teaching the staff despite these time constraints. Because of their efforts, I feel I am not only prepared to successfully complete my current job responsibilities, but also I am prepared to take on additional responsibilities as my career progresses within the firm. Additionally, I have worked at three public accounting firms, and the work life balance here at Arnett Carbis Toothman is by far the best I’ve experienced."

“The work/life balance is exceptional.  The flexibility of our work hours, summer hours, and paid time off are very generous.  Half-day Fridays in the summer months is just one example that shows how much our hard work is appreciated in our busy seasons!  Who doesn’t love to leave the office at noon on a sunny Friday afternoon?”

“Arnett Carbis Toothman is by far the best company I have ever worked for.  I have worked for a big four firm, a huge firm in the industry, and another public accounting firm in the past.  ACT beats them all in various categories.  It is nice to feel acknowledged and appreciated for hard work that most other companies would just ignore.  Brilliant minds work at ACT, with the vast majority of those people willing to help staff do what it takes to succeed and move up to the next level.  I plan on working at this firm for years to come.”
