Why Pile CPAs

Our associates choose Pile CPAs for many of the same reasons our clients do: our people.

Our 25+ people make up a group of diverse, talented individuals who take a personal interest in each other and in each client. At Pile CPAs, our directors and staff work together on service, industry and client teams to deliver exceptional service to our clients. As a member of the Pile CPA team, you will expand leadership, technical service, and business skills. You will work directly with our clients and other Pile CPA specialists, developing long-term relationships that make our experiences meaningful.

Work Life Balance

We understand that to be successful, every one of our associates must balance family, civic, personal, and professional commitments. We also understand that no two individuals are alike in their goals or their work-life balance needs. Therefore, we offer our associates:

  • Flexible scheduling for full-time associates.
  • Flexible work arrangements, including part-time or busy season only opportunities.
  • Competitive benefits and compensation package.
  • Generous paid vacation and holiday time.

To ensure the long-term success of our people and to meet the goals of our firm, we proactively promote individual development.

  • Utilizing a formal process of career planning and feedback
  • Identifying critical competencies and contributions necessary to drive the success of each individual
  • Providing formal and informal feedback, discussion, coaching, and mentoring throughout the year
  • Helping associates develop and progress in the specialty areas fitting them best

In addition, we encourage participation in business and civic organizations as an integral part of being a professional. The firm encourages staff members to write articles for publications and to speak on various professional, business, and civic organizations. Contributing to the growth and development of our practice is an important part of every professional’s role. In addition to meeting client needs, you receive coaching, training, and mentoring to expand the business development skills needed to advance your career with Pile CPAs.


Community Involvement

As proud members of the Central Indiana business community, we believe in the value of giving. Active with over 50 Indianapolis area civic, charitable and business organizations, we collectively donate hundreds of hours each month to meet the needs of our community.

How we serve varies greatly. Each associate is encouraged to find a cause that motivates them to be involved, and then utilize their talents to meet the needs of the organization. Our directors and associates serve on boards, volunteer on committees, and provide labor for projects when they are needed. By donating our time to help further the mission of each organization served, we believe we gain valuable new experience and develop associates who are well-rounded members of the community.

Following a formal week of orientation, Pile CPAs provides extensive in-house on-the-job, and external training. Training includes 40 or more hours of CPE, additional professional development education focused on business, leadership and specialized skills and on-the-job mentoring and training.
You will have minimal travel with Pile CPAs. Our clients are Indiana-based businesses and not-for-profit organizations. Travel to client sites is primarily local (Indianapolis and surrounding communities). Overnight travel is normally only necessary for CPE, with the exception of travel to a few clients located in Northern or Southern Indiana.
One of the exciting and challenging things about a career in public accounting is the non-routine nature of the industry. You will regularly have the opportunity to work with managers and directors one-on-one in a variety of client engagements. Employees generally complete work both in the office and at client sites. You will also participate in firm related activities throughout the year.
Pile CPAs clients are closely-held, Indiana-owned businesses. Most are manufaturers, construction companies, professinal service firms and not-for-profit organizations. They range in size from teh small business to clients with 100’s of millions in annual revenue. You will have the ability to gain experience in many ares with a variety of clients and eventually, to specialize by service or industry niche.
Pile CPAs takes a unique approach to career management that focuses on each individual becoming a well-trained, experienced specialist in a service or industry niche we offer. Our goal is that you will become a trusted advisor to your clients, and you will advance in your career as your skills and abilities develop. We promote based up on individual achievement.
