Alice Madolciu Crowe Soberman Careers
When I was in grade 10, a CPA came to our class and told us “CPAs rule the world.” I was sold.

I entered the accounting co-operative program at the University of Waterloo, where in my first year, during campus recruiting week, I was introduced to Crowe Soberman. My conversations with the larger firm representatives had been all about prestige and privilege, but Crowe Soberman was different. From the Director of Operations I learned about variety of work, growth opportunities and the vibrant, collegial culture of the firm. I hadn’t really understood before what people meant by “fit”, but I instantly recognized it with Crowe Soberman.

Some weeks later I had the opportunity to have lunch with the then Managing Partner and the Director of Operations. This might have been intimidating for a young student, but instead the comfortable, natural conversation confirmed my impression of collegial relationships at all levels in the firm. This was where I wanted to grow my career.

Working in the Audit & Advisory group, first as a co-op student and then as a full-time employee, opened my eyes to the variety of clients the firm had. But when I moved to the Tax group, things got really exciting! There’s no such thing as a “typical” day in Tax. The learning curve is steep and constantly moving, but I have gained the necessary knowledge to help our clients navigate and benefit from the tax system.

Crowe Soberman is so much more than a workplace. I have participated on firm teams such as softball, basketball and beach volleyball; I’ve been involved in community programs and have helped raise funds for non-profit and charitable organizations. The firm and its partners genuinely support the staff’s individual talents and interests outside of work, fostering a community of friendships to last a lifetime.
