Careers

Culture

Sometimes the biggest accounting firms don’t always see the big picture, especially when it comes to employees. At Jackson Thornton, we’re proud of the atmosphere of goodwill and trust we’ve built among those who work here, and the dedication to solid relationships and enthusiastic client service that results.

Within our company atmosphere, we never lose sight of the importance of treating others the way we want to be treated. We believe a work-life balance serves everyone better than year-round 60-hour weeks. Yes, we work hard. And we also spend a good bit of time within the community – both socially and through volunteering. We’re not just about careers. We’re about opportunities for well-rounded individuals. Within this big picture, Jackson Thornton gives each employee room to grow – both as a professional and as a person.
