In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Plumb shares their top reasons why they are thankful to work at Plumb. In no particular order, here are some of their opinions.
Plumb has four office locations in California, including downtown La Jolla, Newport Beach, Rancho Santa Fe and Ontario. The main headquarters is in La Jolla, only steps away from the famous La Jolla Cove. With the expansion of office space outside of La Jolla, Plumb is able to conveniently work with clients throughout Southern California.
2. Plumb Approach:
Since 1996, Plumb’s growth and reputation has flourished as a direct result of our team’s capacity to address client needs and execute creative and effective solutions to a number of complex organizations. Throughout the years, Plumb’s operational efficiencies not only lent itself to Plumb’s growth, but they have allowed Plumb to create a staffing structure for optimal pricing.
Plumb employees enjoy working on a number of different clients, in different industries, at any given time. This gives them more exposure to various tasks in accounting and increases their skillset.

To make the Plumb approach work effectively, Plumb gathers all employees, from all office locations, every quarter for company-wide updates. At these meetings, each division shares some highlights, including new clients, staffing news, marketing activities, software certifications and charity involvement.
Plumb consists of four distinct divisions: Corporate Outsourced Accounting; Plumb Family CFO; NetSuite Solution Provider; and Sage Construction Certified Partner.
The best part about these team building meetings is that they are centered around a fun and competitive event. Accountants and software consultants do NOT like to lose! Plus, Rob Scherer always grills up his famous prime steak sliders.

6. The Food:
Plumb may consist of a bunch of accountants and software consultants, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t all foodies at heart. We love to eat! Thankfully, the kitchen is always stocked with snacks, desserts and more snacks.
Every month, Plumb hosts a New Employee Luncheon to introduce new team members and enjoy pizza or a local La Jolla catered meal.
In addition to the monthly luncheons, Plumb also hosts Quarterly Potlucks. This is an all-time favorite event at Plumb. Every quarter we come up with a new ‘theme’ to be added to the sign-up list. Plumb has employees from diverse backgrounds and it’s fun to try different food from different parts of the world.
Since many Plumb clients are referred by COIs (see number 5), we believe in the power of networking.
