Culture: Putting Employees First

By Vineet Anand, PCS Tax Senior Associate, Houston

“Culture is simply a shared way of doing something with a passion.” -Brian Chesky, CEO, Airbnb

Today’s working environment, to put it simply, can be a thrilling ride of working through challenging engagements while trying to achieve the peaks of accomplishment and self-worth. A key driving force pointing to one’s place on this ride is the culture put into action in the workplace.

I have had the pleasure of working in the Houston office of RSM since August 2016. Prior to joining the firm, I took an introspective look into my true professional needs. All signs pointed to culture at the workplace as the key to longevity and I’m happy to report that my tenure here has exceeded all expectations.

The humble roots of the Houston office can be traced back to Margolis, Phipps and Wright, P.C., a local tax firm focused on private client services. Acquired by McGladrey, now RSM, in 2013, the Houston office mixes the best of both cultures as evidenced every day at the office. Always cognizant of the end goal, the firm recognizes the prevalence of different work styles and promotes flexibility whenever possible. The commitment that management has put forth into putting employees first is a testament to the firm’s values and one of the many reasons I’m proud to be a part of the team.
