I found Hayashi Wayland (HW) and the internship program through its relationship with CSUMB. The internship program was well rounded and allowed interns to gain exposure to many aspects of the public accounting industry. I returned to HW after the internship because it offered a friendly and supportive work environment. HW encourages employees to have a good work-life balance and get involved in the local community. Entry level staff members are given the opportunity to work in both the tax and audit departments prior to choosing a pathway. HW offers a variety of training opportunities - such as webcast, conferences, and in-house training - for its employees in all required areas.

I like working at HW because it allows me to help many clients manage compliance requirements, and resolve any compliance issues that occur, in a timely manner. The peace of mind that comes with knowing that compliance is taken care of allows those business owners to focus on their passion.
Kathy Garcia, CPA Senior Manager
HW is a dynamic work environment where the ever changing needs of clients are met by thoughtful, no-nonsense professionals. HW provides the opportunity for employees to take ownership of their own training and development through sponsored masters programs and continuing education courses provided by industry leaders like the CalCPA Foundation.
HW has allowed me to build my knowledge and technical skills in the area of tax by supporting my aspirations and career path to become a trusted tax advisor.
Kevin Kehoe, CPA Manager
I feel fortunate to be a part of the HW team, because I am surrounded by so many knowledgeable people who are eager to share what they know to help me learn. I love that I am able to both learn and have fun at work every day.
Martha Gustavson Senior Associate
HW has provided me opportunities to grow and advance my career from the first day I started, offering the support, coaching, and training it takes. I have felt like part of the HW family from day one and a part of the local community due to the sense of family atmosphere supported and opportunities provided to give back to our local community.
Stacy Radich, CPA Senior Manager
Hayashi Wayland is a great fit for me, my family, and my career. I first learned about the firm through California State University Monterey Bay during an Accounting Mixer hosted by HW. I participated in their internship program, and shortly after, they offered me a full-time position to begin after graduating. Even as an Associate, I was challenged and asked to perform new tasks and complete various projects. You certainly feel that the firm makes a conscious effort to assist in your professional growth, while also promoting community involvement and a healthy work-life balance. We are all held accountable for our own careers, and rightfully so, but HW goes beyond that and shares in some of that responsibility. They have given me the resources and guidance needed to reach my goals and set new ones, including obtaining my CPA license, which has been a very important milestone in my life and career.
Sean Capistrano, CPA Supervisor
I most appreciate the investment HW makes in its employees through ongoing mentoring, training, and the day to day discussion of information that provides employees with valuable learning opportunities and real-world application. Through this sharing of knowledge, HW encourages employees to identify areas of particular interest and then provides the resources, support, and framework necessary to aide in their success.
