Why Pile CPAs?

Our associates choose Pile CPAs for many of the same reasons our clients do:  our people.

Our 25+ people make up a group of diverse, talented individuals who take a personal interest in each other and in each client.  At Pile CPAs, our directors and staff work together on service, industry and client teams to deliver exceptional service to our clients.  As a member of the Pile CPA team, you will expand leadership, technical, service, and business skills. You will work directly with our clients and other Pile CPA specialists, developing long-term relationships that make our experiences meaningful.

Work-Life Balance

We understand that to be successful, every one of our associates must balance family, civic, personal, and professional commitments. We also understand that no two individuals are alike in their goals or their work-life balance needs. Therefore, we offer our associates:

  • Flexible scheduling for full-time associates
  • Flexible work arrangements, including part-time or busy season only opportunities
  • Competitive benefits and compensation package
  • Generous paid vacation and holiday time

Development

To ensure the long-term success of our people and to meet the goals of our firm, we proactively promote individual development. To achieve this, we utilize a formal process of career planning and feedback. We have identified critical competencies and contributions necessary to drive the success of each individual, each team, and of the firm. We provide formal and informal feedback, discussion, coaching, and mentoring throughout the year. Through this process, we make certain that each associate has the tools necessary for individual and team achievement and success. Additionally, we are committed to helping associates develop and progress in the unique firm specialty areas fitting them best. Whether your interest is in a technical specialty or an industry-specific subject, we tailor your individual training and education to help you advance and meet the needs of your clients and your team.

In addition, we encourage participation in business and civic organizations as an integral part of being a professional. The firm encourages staff members to write articles for publication and to speak to various professional, business, and civic organizations. Contributing to the growth and development of our practice is an important part of every professional’s role at RJ Pile. In addition to meeting client needs, you receive coaching, training, and mentoring to expand the business development skills needed to advance your career with Pile CPAs.

Community Involvement

Founded in 1938, we have a history of working to improve our community. Many of our clients have grown with Pile CPAs all of our 75 years. Collectively, we also provide volunteer service to over 60 non-profit organizations. Many of our associates serve on boards, committees or as volunteers to organizations throughout Central Indiana. Our commitment to the community includes providing ample time to service civic, arts, or professional organizations in our area.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will I have to travel?

You will have minimal travel with Pile CPAs. Our clients are Indiana-based businesses and not-for-profit organizations. Travel to client sites is primarily local (Indianapolis and surrounding communities). Overnight travel is normally only necessary for CPE, with the exception of travel to a few clients located in Northern or Southern Indiana. 

  •  What kind of training program do you have?

Following a formal week of orientation, Pile CPAs provides extensive in-house, on-the-job, and external training. Training includes 40 or more hours of CPE, additional professional development education focused on business, leadership and specialized skills and on-the-job mentoring and training.

  • What types of clients will I work on?

Pile CPA's clients are closely-held, Indiana-owned businesses. Most are manufacturers, construction companies, professional service firms, and not-for-profit organizations. They range in size from small business to clients with 100’s of millions in revenue.

  • What will my typical day be like?

One of the exciting and challenging things about a career in public accounting is the non-routine nature of the industry. You will have the opportunity to work with managers and directors one-on-one in a variety of client engagements. Employees generally complete work both in the office and at client sites. You will also participate in firm related activities through the year. 

During the busy season you can expect to work Saturdays and average 55 hours per week.
