There are countless reasons to choose a career at Plante Moran — but don’t just take our word for it. Here are stories some of our newer staff members have shared on why our firm is such a great place to work:
Flexibility: “I love to fish, and our Grand Rapids office is literally right next to a lake. Last march, a friend called and said, ‘Hey, I’ll meet you out front—do you want to go fish with me?’ It was a beautiful day, but I thought, ‘I’m really busy. I have a lot of tax returns.’ But then I thought, ‘Why not? It’s okay to take a break.’ So he picked me up, we got into his boat, and we fished for a couple of hours—we caught a pretty large steelhead. And then I went back to work. I love having that kind of flexibility during my workday.
Making a difference: “Everyone on the team has a chance—starting on Day 1—to make the team better. When I joined the firm, I put in place a regular team meeting, which was adopted and became best practice for other areas. There’s no experience necessary to make a difference.”
“Someone from the top management level taking interest in my well-being –– that means the world to me.”
Open door policy: “Toward the end of busy season, I stopped my manager’s office and told him I needed to talk. He took me to lunch and I shared concerns about work I still needed to get done. He thanked me for being so candid and for feeling comfortable enough to come to him. He appreciated my openness and worked to get me through the last month of busy season without feeling overwhelmed.”
We care: “A few weeks ago, I ran into a member of the Plante Moran management team. Not only did the person know my name, but they asked about my family and personal life. It’s little things like that. Someone from the top management level taking interest in my well-being –– that means the world to me.”
Hard work is recognized: “After busy season, our partner held a team outing as a way to say thanks for all the hard work put in by his team and as a way to build camaraderie. He rented canoes one afternoon and randomly paired staff to canoe the Huron River. He then took us to dinner. The entire day was a really great treat!”
