Why I love working at PKM

I recently had a discussion with several friends about our jobs and what we see in the near future. I was surprised to hear most of them were unhappy and wanted something much different than their current jobs could offer. I was a little shocked because I couldn’t feel any more differently than them. Don’t get me wrong, there are days when work is just another four letter word (i.e. busy season), but more times than not, working at PKM is enjoyable and extremely satisfying. Here is a list of reasons “why I love PKM:”

  • The People – The people at PKM make this place special. To me this is one of the most important factors in finding a job or a career that you genuinely enjoy. There are a variety of people and different personalities that make the “PKM family.”
  • Flexibility and Responsibility – As a senior, I have the ability to create my own schedule to a degree and figure out what works best for me as far as the engagement is handled. The partners and managers give you the responsibility of running your jobs, which may sound daunting to some, but is extremely satisfying and gives you the drive to do your best.
  • Travel – PKM does a great job of balancing your life on the road. Even as a staff or senior, you have the ability to voice your opinion on whether to travel more or less. While most people would prefer their own bed at night, there are plenty of perks associated with business travel (i.e. hotel points, free meals, car mileage, etc). I’ve had the opportunity to work on one of our clients in Green Bay, WI, which has allowed me the opportunity to attend Green Bay Packers game. Whether you like football or not, going to a Packers game at Lambeau Field is a bucket list opportunity for anyone!
