Friedman LLP’s goal is to create a work environment that eliminates unfair choices, such as between career and family or between work and a fulfilling social life. That’s why the firm has created initiatives like its Summer Friday program, which allows employees to work extended hours Monday through Thursday so they can take Fridays off. Friedman is invested in these ideals because people come first, says Bruce A. Madnick. This is also reflected in the four core attributes of Friedman’s corporate culture: flexible, collaborative, growth oriented and socially responsible. Even as the firm has dedicated resources to building culture around these core areas, Madnick says the element of culture that most significantly contributes to the company’s success is its commitment to the standards and integrity of the accounting profession.
“Outside the office, the firm fosters a culture of fun and collaboration by holding an annual team day, where all offices unite in a spirit of friendly competition by sponsoring Friedman teams in a variety of sports leagues, and by hosting parties and other events for special occasions.”
