MaloneBailey is recognized by the Houston Business Journal as one of the top 25 firms in Houston, one of the top 20 firms in the Southwest region by Accounting Today and as one of the fastest growing firms by INSIDE Public Accounting. MaloneBailey has been recognized as one of the "Best and Brightest Companies to Work For" in Houston by the National Association for Business Resources since 2014. We specialize in audit services for public companies. Our clients are NYSE, NASDAQ and OTC listed companies. We are among the top eleven firms in the world that audit over 100 SEC registrants while most firms audit fewer than ten.
We specialize in audit services for public companies, ranking among the top eleven firms in the world that audit over 100 SEC registrants, offering you a unique opportunity to work almost exclusively on public companies. This means you are likely to see more public company filings here than at any other firm. You will be exposed to the entire audit process much earlier as well as technical issues much sooner. We offer versatility in terms of the industries we serve and have clients in a variety of sectors including oil & gas, biotech, manufacturing, retail, high tech and much more.
Work / life balance is important to us and we offer much more flexibility through a variety of programs and initiatives, including flex hours, an optional overtime bank, a 9/80 schedule during the non-busy weeks and a computer set up at home. However, we’re still a CPA firm so it’s not all roses. We still have a pretty “busy” busy season, although hours are normally capped at 55 hours per week. So, depending on your jobs, you would likely work less overall hours at MB.
Culture is a key component in MaloneBailey’s identity. As a smaller firm, we offer a greater sense of belonging and everyone contributes to the culture of our firm vs. conforming to a larger firm's culture. Because our clients are smaller, we can do most of the audit work in our offices so there’s very little travel, which means more time with your friends and family here in Houston! Since you’re in the office most of the time, everyone becomes closer and we like to think of ourselves as one big family. We work hard and play hard - with lots of social events, various committees and a robust training program. There are plenty of opportunities to plug in and get involved.
We work with clients of various sizes in various industries which keeps our work challenging and rewarding. During busy season the majority of our work is done alongside peers in our Houston office rather than separated and at the client’s site. We are able to build our own daily schedule around our projects and preferences for working early hours or late hours. Work/Life balance is very important. To recognize employees working longer hours during busy season, we give your time back to you! All overtime worked can be used as paid time off in addition to your vacation time and/or you can use it as additional salary. It’s your time so the choice is yours!
We also work together through a formal training and mentorship program so that we are able to share knowledge from the partner level to the staff level. Socializing in and out of the office through lunches and participating in team sports is also key to fostering a friendly and cohesive work environment. Our staff are exposed to a structured approach to training and professional development, an extensive orientation process, the ability to participate on various committees and take part in established mentoring and buddy programs.

With substantial direct partner involvement in each engagement, we work to reduce our clients’ regulatory headaches and fees, allowing them to focus on the fundamentals of running their businesses while we help guide them through the sometimes complex mechanics of SEC processes.
