Associate Testimonials

Working at Marcum has allowed me explore the different types of accounting over an array of sectors. Probably the greatest benefit of working for Marcum is that every client is unique and you work with so many different people. You are never doing the same thing and you are constantly learning and growing.

Alondra Ramos Senior Accountant - West Palm Beach, FL

Through the MBA program, I met some amazing people from Marcum. While everyone else was aiming for the Big Four, I saw that Marcum could offer me growth and experience. I have been here since October 2018.

Kevin Millan Senior Accountant - Roseland, NJ

I came to Marcum as the result of the merger with Raffa in October 2018. One of the deciding factors for me in joining the firm was the diversity at the partner level. I loved the diversity and the opportunity for women, and loved the warmth that I sensed from the existing partners. I felt a sense of inclusion.

Kimberly Robertson Partner - Washington, DC

The mix of generations in the workplace really has made our LA office more diverse and lively. There’s a certain way we treat each other on a personal level that feels like having a second family or a set of good friends, while still having professional respect for everyone.

Merryl Rabaino Manager - Los Angeles, CA

I came to Marcum in search of a better work-life balance and more opportunities, and I have not been disappointed. I have been here for two years and recently made the switch to work for our National QC Department. I learn something new every day!

Maria Rivero Senior Manager, Assurance/QC - Fort Lauderdale, FL

Working at a firm like Marcum lets me offer prospects so many different areas of expertise - whether it's tax credits like Research and Development or Worker Opportunity credits.
