In addition to exposing you to a broad range of clients and responsibilities, we offer 60 to 80 hours of CPE credit each year, as well as mentoring and coaching to help you discover and progress along your own path.

Time for What Matters

You are more than your job. At BT, we believe that you must take care of yourself and your loved ones before you can deliver outstanding work for your clients. We provide a generous amount of time off of 160 hours of compensated leave plus 12 paid firm holidays. We also believe in giving flexibility to fulfill career and personal goals. Our supervisors have the ability to approve alternate work schedules, as long as that schedule allows you to continue to meet the needs of your Bennett Thrasher team and your clients.

Giving Back

We believe in investing our time and resources to improve the Greater Atlanta community, which has fueled our success. The Bennett Thrasher Foundation, funded with a percentage of the firm’s top-line revenues, takes grant requests exclusively from associates and partners, and we work together side-by-side on community projects such as Habitat for Humanity houses. We also provide each team member with up to 16 paid hours per year to volunteer for charitable organizations of their choice.

Your Input

We only become Better Together through direct, open and honest communication. If you have feedback or ideas about how to improve the firm, stop by any partner’s office, drop a note in one of our suggestion boxes or speak to your Associate Council member. Made up of elected delegates from each department, the Council acts as the associates’ collective voice to the partner group.

Our People

Bennett Thrasher’s most important asset is our people and we show it through programs, benefits and events for all associates. We offer a competitive benefits package with generous PTO and a 401k plan with Discretionary Profit Sharing.

We offer opportunities for CPE, CPA exam/review course reimbursement and other paid professional development opportunities.

Looking For Career Growth? Let’s Talk!

Where do you see your career taking you? We can help you get there.

Our dynamic, growing client base provides abundant opportunities to take on new challenges and achieve your career goals while providing a diverse range of experiences at every level. Wherever your career takes you, you’ll have the skills and business acumen to excel.

Of course, a career isn’t always linear-sometimes it zigs or zags due to a change in your career aspirations or family commitments. Maybe you want to take a sabbatical to pursue a philanthropic passion, or you find out that audit isn’t the right fit for you, and you want to try out business valuation or dispute resolution. At Bennett Thrasher, we encourage you to come to us with your needs, your concerns and your questions so that we can have a conversation about what career moves are best for you and your family-and as a result, best for our firm.

Whether you already have a clear picture of ambitious career goals, or you’re looking for some guidance, we can help you find your path.

This is a place where collaboration is a daily commitment, where we seek each other out for input, validation and counsel, and where we truly like working together and enjoy the work we do.

We strive to open doors and provide opportunities for associates to share ideas and be transparent.
