Who is Pine & Company CPAs:

Pine & Company CPAs is a full-service, progressive CPA firm centrally located in Roanoke, TX. We specialize in:

●     tax planning

●     tax preparation

●     proactive tax planning services

●     consultation for small to large-sized businesses, as well as individuals

We’re a small-but-growing firm with a family culture.

Because we are currently experiencing exciting growth*, most positions are currently eligible for fast-track partner status. If you want to become a partner, we’ll create that opportunity and set you on that path.

* We’re aware that “growth” can be a code word for “crushing workload and unhealthy expectations.” We know because we’ve worked for those kinds of firms. That’s not what it’s like at Pine. Keep reading, and pay careful attention to the “Family” and “Friendly Environment”paragraphs below.

What’s important to us:

Opportunities to stretch and grow. Professional training is emphasized and personal development is always a priority — including for the leadership team. Then, we take that effort and learning and use it to deliver amazing results for our clients (and our relationships).

Muhammad describes this perfectly: “I was bored in my old job as there wasn’t much to learn and it seemed like the same thing day after day. In my new job atPine, I get to learn new things, which is building my confidence and honing my ability to manage multiple tasks. I’m so happy to have found a company where the culture encourages growth opportunities!”

Family and meaningful time away from work. Pine has fewer required hours than most firms. We want you to have actual work-life balance.Everyone benefits when we have time to do things that refresh our mind, body, and spirit. We all take “Flex Fridays” during the offseason, have generous PTO(that you will actually be able to take), and some of us use remote work options.

Luz, like all our employees, should never feel guilty for taking time for family: My family is very important to me, and my old workplace made me feel guilty for being a young mom. I felt conflicted about having to decide between events for my kids and workplace obligations. Working at Pine has afforded me a flexible schedule where I no longer have to choose! I now feel like I have a balance between life and work, and my life is better because of it.

A friendly and collaborative office environment. We’ve had jobs where we had to deal with toxic bosses, crushing to-do lists, office politics… That’s not what it’s like at Pine. We’ve built the company that we want to work for: growing, performance-driven, and supportive. Every employee is encouraged to contribute to our processes, decisions, planning, and culture.

Stephen experienced a big shift in company culture when starting at Pine: “I was so burned out in my previous job, because the owner didn’t seem to care about me or my growth.Now, I wake up excited every morning because I’m part of a team that cares about our clients and about each other. I couldn’t ask for better people to work for and with!”

What is the compensation:

Our compensation package is in the top five percent of the industry. We hire the best, train you well, and want you to stay. This position is a full-time, salaried position.

●     Base salaries are determined by your level of experience. The base salary range for a senior tax manager is $110,000 to$130,000 per year. For tax directors, the range is $130,000 to $150,000 per year.

The top-performing 20% of our employees have received significant bonuses. Your bonus will depend on the quality you bring to managing your team, to our clients, and the firm. We are very happy to reward excellence.
