Business Development Specialist (Current Employee) – Columbia, MD – June 20, 2012
On a typical day, I research new businesses and contact companies with job listings for bookkeepers to discuss business counseling and outsourced accounting services. I work with a capable and friendly staff. There are a few people I will continue to stay in touch with after my departure. It has been a good place to work and time to move on.
Avoid - Inexperienced French Mgmt/No Communication or Strategy
Management (Current Employee) – Maryland – March 5, 2016
Strongly recommend avoiding this company. Do your own research and you will concur. French management is inexperienced and does not value US workers. The US entity's financial performance is poor. There is little investment in training.
Unless you live near your office or work with a nice co-worker there is none.

Business Development Manager (Former Employee) – Columbia, MD – October 9, 2014
My role was in advising small business owners on adding business consulting to their budget as well as bookkeeping services. The job entailed developing relationships with lead sources and partnerships. I had a direct contributor and sales management role. Hardest part of the job was having no control over the quality of services delivered by CPA's that were not trained properly or did not have the people skills necessary to be effective.
I enjoyed working with this international accounting & financial services company
Franchise Business Advisor (Former Employee) – Columbia, MD – July 29, 2014
I would attend meeting and do training in the morning. I would schedule times throughout the day to discuss business start up plans with people planning on becoming franchisees. In the afternoon and early evening I would conduct franchise presentations.
My co-workers were excellent as we collaborated on the changes that were necessary in the UFOC. The most enjoyable part of the job was when a person decided to buy a franchise.
I was responsile for runig payroll for different clients on weekly and i-weekly basis. I enjoyed doing this. I stayed up to date on changing payroll laws and tax laws which I enjoy. Unfortunately it was only a part-time position and had no benefits
stayed educated on changing payroll laws and tax laws
