Accountant or not: who cares at PKM?

Network Administrator

Once upon a time, I had the idea to be an accountant. Throughout college, I took a couple accounting classes but quickly decided to stick to IT. However, that didn’t stop me from working at an accounting firm. And not just any accounting firm but the best accounting firm out there: Porter Keadle Moore.

In case you haven’t heard, we are one of the best accounting firms to work for, and I am a witness to that. Life for me as a Network Administrator is quite different from the accountants, although I find myself doing similar activities as them on a day to day basis. For example, I work late nights alongside them rather frequently. I embrace in the busy season with them, except busy season never really stops for me! I get to enjoy all the same snacks supplied around the office as well as all the good food provided by PKM on special occasions. And last but not least, I receive the same perks as the accountants by joining in on the fun that goes on throughout the year, such as the Holiday Party, After Busy Season Party and Annual Firm Outing. Not to mention, I was the lucky winner of the iPad Mini at the Holiday Party last year!

While I may not be an accountant, my job at PKM is just as fun and exciting. Every day, I ensure that the technology needs of the firm are being met and that each employee has the tools they need to do their job. Therefore, I always have to be ready for action, and I wouldn’t to be on the tip of my toes for any other firm besides PKM. Despite my different choice in career, I am still part of one of the best accounting firms to work for, and I am proud of it!
