  1. Flexibility: “Here at Plante Moran, managers realize that flexibility looks different for everyone. My wife is a nurse on the night shift, so flexibility is everything to us. I appreciate being able to be with my kids at some point during the day and then make up that time later. I’m glad that my partner trusts me to handle my own schedule and keep him informed.”

  2. Relatively jerk-free leaders: “Plante Moran is different. I was in a meeting recently with a member of our management team. He’s smart. He probably could’ve solved the situation we were talking about. But he asked for my thoughts. He recognized that I might have a different perspective from him and he wanted to hear it. Our senior leaders aren’t afraid to ask for input and be challenged.

  3. Camaraderie: “There are things we do that are truly weird and fun. My group is filled with the biggest nerds, and yet they are literally my whole life. We have this amazing ability to connect across 12 different offices. They are the reason I continue to work here. It’s all about how we treat one another.”

  4. We care: “My team partner has always validated my mental health needs the same way we’d treat someone who had broken a bone. He was flexible, occasionally shifted my schedule, and when I’d talk to him about how I was feeling, he listened. He explained that we’re a big firm with lots of resources. He showed me it’s OK to lean on others.” 

  5. Staff development: “One of our prior managing partners, Bill Hermann, wrote a book on how Plante Moran has developed a system of individually focused staff development. We make investments into our people to contribute to higher staff morale, lower turnover, better teamwork, happier clients, and a better bottom line, which allows us to make more investments into our people. I feel like this is completely true in my case and my interactions with others. I don’t know of any other place that does this better.”

  6. Mobility: “As a full-time assurance staff, the opportunity for a fellowship in learning and development was very exciting. It opened new doors for me. I switched my focus and my role in the firm. I think it’s awesome that people can figure out what they’re passionate about and take their career in a new direction. It’s integral to retention and keeping people happy.”
