Companies from across the county entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Orange County.

This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall process in Orange County, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.

Windes was the only public accounting firm to make the list in the Midsize Companies category (50-249 employees).

“I’m really proud of our team, as we have shown resiliency, discipline, determination, and an advisory mindset serving our clients and collaborating with colleagues this year,” says Managing Partner Jim Cordova.  “As a public accounting firm, we have successfully achieved working through various schedule changes and governmental assistance initiatives, such as the Paycheck Protection Program. We have swiftly adapted to the changes brought upon us by the pandemic and the credit goes to all of our employees. We understand how tough it is to work remotely for employees with children at home, along with all of the other challenges facing us this year. Our team has done a tremendous job at adapting and have kept our firm’s culture and relationships strong.”
