This article addresses questions about family benefits in public accounting firms and reports on a survey of Connecticut CPAs. Results suggest differences in the benefits and family policies of Big 6 and local firms, with local firms being more responsive to the family needs of their professional staff. Results also suggest opinions are influenced by gender and organizational position (staff or partner). Women and staff accountants believe that using benefits might hurt their careers, and they have less favorable attitudes about their firm’s family policies and benefits.
