I have been with Burdette Smith & Bish for almost two years now and I have truly enjoyed and loved every second of it! As a young staff member, the willingness of everyone to take the time to teach you and answer your questions has been monumental in shaping & growing my work experience and knowledge to succeed as an accountant. I am so grateful for the wide range of projects I have been assigned to, whether it’s working on a tax return or performing an audit, I get to leave work every day knowing that I have learned and accomplished something, which is a really gratifying feeling. Another thing that is so great about working at BSB is the fun environment that makes every day so enjoyable. Whether it’s celebrating the end of tax season, or celebrating a co-workers life event, or even just good old fashioned happy hours after work, we enjoy spending time together & can always find a reason to have a party! Over the past two years I have been with Burdette Smith & Bish, we have won a spot on the “Best Places to Work in Virginia” list, and it didn’t take long for me to realize why we deserved to be on this list. Sure the open door policy employed here, the social events planned for staff, having Fridays off in the summer; these are all things that make working at Burdette Smith & Bish so great! But what I love the most about working at BSB is that working here I don’t just feel like I am part of a team, I feel like I am part of a family.
