One of my favorite things about working at Vrakas is the clients. The relationships we have with our clients go above and beyond the daily tasks of auditing. I love getting e-mails from them asking how I’m doing or getting updates from them on their lives.. Melissa Karis

Employee Testimonials

My favorite part of interning with Vrakas is that interns get experience in both audit and tax, as well as being assigned the same level of work as the staff accountants. Being able to experience both areas, I was able to firmly decide which was truly for me.Jordan Costabile
