While about 100,000 firms with combined annual revenues of approximately $120 billion make up the accounting services, employment in accounting typically involves working for just one of three sizes of employers:
- The Big Four accounting firms -- Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, PricewaterhouseCoopers, KPMG and Ernst & Young -- that together offer about 650,000 accounting jobs and bill over $100 billion annually
- Midsize US accounting firms, including Grant Thornton, McGladrey & Pullen and BDO Seidman
- Smaller accounting and auditor firms that primarily serve specialized industries and local businesses
The accounting services market is fragmented: The 50 largest accounting companies hold just less than 50 percent of the market, according to Hoovers.Other jobs in accounting can be found at large accounting-related companies such as payroll services provider Automatic Data Processing (ADP) and tax preparer H&R Block, Hoovers says.
