    The NJBiz survey and award program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in New Jersey, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses. In gaining the honor, Citrin Cooperman's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics were evaluated and its employees were surveyed to measure the employee experience.

    Among the many benefits at Citrin Cooperman are: a four-week paid sabbatical after six years employment, advanced leadership programs, cash bonuses for those that earn their CPA designation, a minimum of 100 hours of CPE training annually and bonuses based on accomplishments.

    The firm offers Citrin Cooperman University, a highly acclaimed continuing education program for young accountants; new hires are provided mentors to help them advance in the firm; and an International Work Exchange Program, offering professionals the opportunity to gain experience abroad, working with Moore Stephens affiliates.

    "Our third consecutive NJBiz 'best places to work' honor is the result of programs we've implemented and fine-tuned with feedback from our staff," said Ed Horton, co-partner in charge of the firm's New Jersey office with Alex Serrano. "Our employees and professionals are among the best, brightest and most dedicated in the accounting industry, and work extremely hard on behalf of the clients they serve.

The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
