Continued Education and Goals: Lifelong learning and achievable goals are the cornerstones of career success. All employees at CJ have a performance plan and stated goals for their roles in the firm, and they receive ongoing support and feedback on their progress. We have a training program tailored to the specific needs of each position so our people are fully prepared to produce quality work as they reach each new level of expertise. Our mentoring program is in place so each team member is provided the help and support to develop their professional growth within our firm.
Reaching the Next Level: Our team members are given additional responsibilities and promoted to the next level when they are ready, and promotions are not contingent on an open position in the management team. The rate of career progression is completely up to the individual, meaning the only person that you compete against to get ahead is yourself. The CJ partner and management group provides guidance, support and the tools needed for each member of our team to be successful in their career at Cornwell Jackson.
The Cornwell Jackson approach to busy season: Although January through April is the industry-wide crunch time period, our management team focuses on making the best use of time with efficient tools and effective processes. Our goal is delivering a quality product to our clients as quickly as possible, not meeting a specific number of hours worked. We strive to give our staff the flexibility to choose when they are able to work the additional hours that may be required to achieve their busy season goals and to earn bonuses. During our busy season, our staff works an average of 55 hours per week for 12 weeks. The remainder of the year is a standard 40 hour work week.
The CJ Family: This is how we see ourselves and how we feel about our team. Our large local accounting firm feel allows us to cultivate an environment filled with warmth and friendliness. We all work hard to maintain that close-knit environment in spite of our double digit growth each year, because it is a mainstay value for us. Throughout the year, our team participates in various charitable activities, team happy hours, and parties to develop friendships between team members.
