We Love Our Nerds.
In an industry well known for burn-out and low job satisfaction, we are often asked…how is it possible that your public accounting firm was voted the #1 company to work for in all of Oregon? Our answer is very simple…it all comes down to people.
Every fall, along with the crispness of the air and turning color of the leaves, our newest class of staff accountants joins the team at Delap. What many of these new recruits find however, is an environment unlike the typical public accounting firm…
A wide array of personalities make up our team, with common stereotypical accountant traits such as, “over-achieving, high attention to detail, literal, organized, conservative, and risk-averse “. What is surprising, however, is the number of individuals who are incredibly quirky, hilarious, sarcastic, adventurous, collaborative, and full of personality. A diverse bunch of nerds, our people come from Big-4 firms, local and regional firms, straight from college, and other various career paths that are anything but typical.
Sure – they love numbers, and get hung-up on the details from time-to-time (aka every day), but more importantly, they have developed friendships and camaraderie that is invaluable. Whether it’s the annual ping pong tournament, March Madness bracket, bonding over washing dogs at Dogtoberfest, the friendly competition of Fantasy Football, running with no sleep at Hood to Coast, golfing or drinking wine at the annual firm retreat, or pulling an unforgettable prank on a cube-mate – our team at Delap is far from dull, dry, or boring.
It’s safe to say that, we love our nerds!
Thanks to an awesome team of smarty-pants who get the numbers, and also like to have fun. It is because of YOU, that our firm won the Top Workplaces Award.
