Your professional goals matter to us, and we provide our employees with access to all the resources traditionally reserved for larger firms in a conveniently located, spacious work environment equipped with the latest technology. Our ability to provide personal guidance to professionals as they develop combined with our ability to integrate a variety of backgrounds and skills into an effective team represent some of the reasons for our success and the successful careers of our staff.

We’re Different

Perhaps it appears that all accounting firms function essentially the same way. However, Price Kong operates very differently when it comes to our management philosophy and the relationship between staff, management, and our clients.

Relationships

To understand what it’s like to work for Price Kong, you must understand how we treat our clients. Our relationship with our clients is built on concern for them as individuals as well as a business owner.

Opportunity

By joining Price Kong, you will have the opportunity to interact with clients and to feel a sense of accomplishment at being involved with engagements from start to finish. You will begin by being responsible for small projects and will develop your skills to accept responsibility for larger engagements.

Education

We encourage the highest level of education possible and have provided our team with cutting-edge training, multiple industry expertise, and the resources necessary to help you achieve our clients’ goals.

Culture

Bottom line: The success of Price Kong is directly related to the caliber and attitude of the people associated with us. We don’t merely look for accountants to join our firm – we look for bright people who understand how to build strong relationships with co-workers and clients.

Our goal is to provide the best atmosphere possible in which our people can create, perform, and grow.

We look for people with the potential to achieve partner status, people with the capability of reasoning and understanding, who get personal satisfaction from helping others, and who have new ideas to bring the profession.

Much of our culture revolves around our community involvement with the Osborn School District, Price Kong Annual Charity Golf Tournament and Phoenix Lions Club to name a few.

Price Kong Life

We love to have fun! Tax and accounting firms have some of the toughest and hardest working employees out there. To help reward these hard workers, we routinely have fun parties and events to celebrate our successes.

Not only do we party in-house, we participate in fun outings such as mini golf, bowling, go-kart racing, and more!

We also have an annual trip, a highlight for every employee, that has taken us to Laughlin, Disneyland, Rio Rico, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Universal Studios and others, to reward our staff for a tax season well done.
