The client and regulatory challenges that today’s CPAs and business advisors face can be daunting, but Soren McAdam LLP prides itself on offering a “sustainable career path,” enabling its employees balance workplace commitments with personal lives.

According to a representative, the Redland-based firm’s goal of partnering with its clients and contributing to their success is embraced at all levels of our firm. Employees are afforded the opportunity to work closely with clients and learn a variety of skills related to multiple industries. The company offers a wide range of training opportunities to meet each individual’s specific needs and encourage employees to grow professionally and personally.

The representative described Soren McAdam as having a “family feel,” noting that employees enjoy the firm’s friendly environment and a generous array of benefits well beyond the norm.

The Soren McAdam website notes that the firm recruits graduates from colleges and universities throughout the Inland Empire, priding itself on its ability to attract the best students. The company strives to help entry-level professional staff members advance to becoming partners in the firm. Each member of its professional staff is provided with more than 50 hours of continuing professional education annually, covering such topics as accounting and auditing; all areas of taxation; business-management issues; interpersonal skills; fraud; and professional ethics.

In an effort to serve the local community, Soren McAdam LLP participates in Redland’s Adopt-A-Street program and the annual Believe Walk, which raises funds for cancer-fighting organizations in the Inland Empire. The company actively supports a variety of other organizations as well, including Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Fund.
