Company information: We’re a Dallas-based CPA firm that tackles complex accounting and tax problems by providing creative tax strategies that go beyond the minimum to add value to our clients. We understand the struggles our clients face and collaborate with them to achieve their goals. By providing more than 20 years of experience, onsite consulting, team familiarity, consistent communication and specialized education, PriceKubecka is crucial to client success.

What is something cool/exciting/unique about your industry?

In public accounting a client can be from any industry. This is what is great about public accounting; you can dive into any industry that sounds interesting without committing to one particular private company. You get to learn the ins and outs of a wide range of companies.

Please share current industry/department trends.

In the audit profession there is an ever-increasing focus on IT and data risks. Technology is constantly evolving. The importance of assessing and testing those risks has increased throughout the years.

Why do you like working in this industry?

There are multiple clients that come from a variety of industries; therefore the work is hardly ever monotonous. There is always something new to learn which keeps the job interesting and challenging. I love to learn new things and I can’t resist a challenge.

Why should students decide to work in the Accounting industry?

Smaller CPA firms primarily work with local businesses. The clients greatly appreciate the expertise that we are able to provide through our services. Hard work does not go unnoticed from the clients. At public companies, audits are mandatory and so auditors are not necessarily appreciated. Working with smaller clients, auditors help solve problems that ultimately help the businesses grow. Therefore, there is a greater appreciation for your work.

Fun fact about company or industry that people may not know.

Fun fact 1: PriceKubecka recently changed the vacation policy to “no vacation policy.” As long as work is getting done, vacation days are limitless (within reason).

Fun fact 2: Part of my job also involves networking and bringing in new business to the firm. At PriceKubecka, everyone is encouraged to take a break from Excel to meet entrepreneurs.
