When Jeff & Elizabeth Nigro founded the firm,
it was based on the philosophy that life should
come first, not work. That philosophy continues
today with all of our current employees being
able to maintain a healthy balance between their
personal lives and their professional careers.
Simply due to the nature of providing services
to such a wide array of clients, we occasionally
have to work overtime; however, our generous allotment
of paid time-off recognizes your efforts.
In addition to challenging
and varied work assignments, we offer you a
place where you are recognized as a unique individual.
We are large enough to meet our clients’
needs, but small enough so that we meet each
of our employees’ needs as well. We strive
to achieve a high level of camaraderie through summer company picnics,
parties, and other informal outings
throughout the year. In a recent survey, our
employees rated “the people I work with”
as one of the top reasons for their job satisfaction.
We know that people have choices when it comes
to selecting a company to work for. We aim to
make the decision to work at Nigro & Nigro
a financially rewarding one. We encourage all
professional staff to achieve their CPA license
as soon as possible by offering financial incentives,
such as a CPA bonus and a higher salary structure
for licensed professionals. Advancement to management
also requires a CPA license. However, while
you are working towards that goal, we offer
competitive hourly wages and overtime pay, when
All employees working more
than 20 hours per week receive a benefits package
that includes medical, dental, vision, and life
insurance. A 401(k) and profit-sharing plan is also available.
Employees earn a generous amount of paid time
off (PTO) days to use as they desire for sick
days, personal days, or vacation, in addition
to 5 paid holidays. Employees may also earn
bonuses for marketing, recruiting, or simply
being recognized for outstanding achievements!
Training & Assignments
We believe that each employee is unique and
makes a valuable contribution to the long-term
success of the firm. We invest a great deal
of time and company resources into providing
the most effective and rigorous professional
development available. We use outside professional
development by enrolling in courses offered
by the CalCPA Education Foundation, and other
external providers. We provide between 50-80
hours per year of in-house training for each
member of our audit team in order to meet the
requirements of Government Auditing Standards.
Finally, our experienced staff provide on-the-job
training to newer staff members. We never leave
a less-experienced staff member at a client
without a more experienced associate available
to ask questions.
At Nigro & Nigro, you can
expect to work on a variety of assignments.
You may have the opportunity to work in areas
of interest such as audits, tax and accounting
services, fraud investigations, and general
business consulting. These other service areas
also provide opportunities in industries including
not-for-profit organizations, homeowners associations,
local government agencies, commercial businesses,
and individuals. No matter your area of interest,
we try to accommodate each employee’s

don’t just work in the Temecula Valley.
We live here, too. That is why we believe in
the importance of giving back and supporting
the community. Over the years, in addition to
working with several charitable organizations,
our people have donated both time and financial
In June 2012, all of our employees
participated in the Annual Murrieta Relay for
Life, an event to raise funds and awareness
for the fight against cancer. Past events have
also included providing Christmas gifts to underprivileged
families in our community, providing food donations
to local food pantries, and sending care packages
troops stationed overseas.
We recognize that maintaining the continued
success of our firm means recruiting the highest
caliber employees. We are more interested in
hiring the right people than the timing. In
other words, we will never turn down an opportunity
to improve the strength of our firm because
“we’re not hiring right now”.
We believe that the best employees will make
the firm better, regardless of what time of
year it is. As such, we are involved in recruiting
efforts from local universities, references
from our existing employees, and other sources.
The qualities that we seek in an individual
- Excellent oral and written
- Ability to work as part
of a team
- Utmost level of honesty
- Self-motivated and a quick
Positions Offered In
We are often asked if
we offer internship opportunities. If we feel
a student is a good fit for our firm, we will
work out a schedule that provides that person
an opportunity to gain work experience while
completing their degree. The goal is always
to bring that person into a full-time position
with Nigro & Nigro.
