Note From CFO:

Dear Candidate – thank you for your interest in this position.

I think that the best way to describe this position is that of a traditional Accounting Manager in a non-traditional, client-focused, culture-driven, progressive organization. Not only are we a growing law firm, we actively and passively participate in a number of other entities and investments- all of which the accounting for is completed in-house. We are focused on process-improvement and efficiency via technology and are looking for a candidate that embraces that philosophy and is comfortable with change.

Beyond your accounting experience and know-how, the keys to success in this position are organization and time management. As noted above, we have a number of different entities and business lines. Through our core businesses, we have the privilege of representing thousands of individual clients, and this translates to thousands of transactions. For these reasons, organization is incredibly important. Additionally, we operate in a fast-paced environment, and emphasize meeting deadlines, which is why time management is also important.

I should note that this is a position expected to work in the office, at minimum, 4 days per week. The standard work week at Pond Lehocky Giordano LLP is 35 hours (reflective of 1 hour lunch) per week, and the average for this position is 35-40 hours per week, occasionally exceeding this based on the project. While we are a highly driven firm, we are also extremely family-friendly and believe in providing an environment where our team members can thrive.
