Working at ECS
Be more than just an accountant. Our portfolio of services extends beyond the conventional. ECS professionals are consultants and strategists, deeply involved in our clients" businesses and dedicated to their success. We prepare you to help clients project sales revenues and production expenses, develop business plans, anticipate taxes and depreciation costs, and secure financing to keep them growing.
Work as a team. At ECS, you"ll join a financial management team designed around the needs of individual clients. In the more intimate environment of a small firm, this team approach provides the satisfaction of long-term client relationships, the chance to stretch beyond conventional accounting services, and the opportunity to master issues and information associated with specific businesses and industries.
Master technology. ECS Financial Services, Inc. is consistently ahead of the curve in applying new technologies -- from computerized tax libraries and automated tax preparation to sophisticated job tracking software. A WAN links our office to Boston and Denver, and our T1 line ensures 7 x 24 Internet access to download files, exchange spreadsheets and provide e-mail advice -- in a hands-on work process that saves time and money.
Learn for a lifetime. ECS continually invests in professional excellence through in-service training and continuing education opportunities. Our partners hold an array of advanced degrees and certifications (CPA, CMA, MBA, CVA, MST, CLP, real estate broker, licensed business broker and registered investment licensee), and we encourage the ECS team to build credentials and broaden expertise.
Indulge your entrepreneurial spirit. ECS partners are successful entrepreneurs, pursuing interests in real estate development, leasing, financial planning and investment, property management and real estate brokerage. We nurture these ventures because we believe they enhance our services and improve our understanding of the challenges our clients confront.
Enjoy flexibility and good will. It"s no accident that more than half our staff has remained with ECS Financial Services, Inc. more than 10 years. Our team of genuinely nice, honest men and women share a common work ethic: We strive for excellence in our profession and balance in our lives. Because accounting necessitates significant overtime on a seasonal basis, we allow professionals to prioritize their own work; we accommodate flex time; and we offer compensatory time when team members need to decompress. With "business casual" the dress code most of the year, we create a comfortable environment where people really like coming to work.
Work where you live. Located in Northbrook, Illinois, a beautiful upscale suburb just 25 miles north of Chicago, ECS provides the opportunity for a satisfying career -- without a daily downtown commute. We"re minutes away from both the Edens Expressway and I-294, easily accessible from throughout Chicagoland and close enough to the city, by car or train, to put Chicago"s cultural and recreational resources within easy reach.
