“The managers and partners of the firm genuinely care about our advancement.” ~ Christopher McKellar, Staff Accountant (Atlanta Office)
“I like working here because of all the great people and the relaxed working environment. M&J has all the resources of a Big 4 firm but the feel of a smaller local firm. At M&J, I feel as though partners and management want me to work my way up to becoming a partner and to succeed as a professional and they give me the tools and resources to be able to do so. I have no desire to work anywhere else!” ~Ryan Miller , Staff Accountant (Birmingham Office)
