I found Hayashi Wayland (HW) online when I lived out of state and planned to move to the area. Because of the awards it had received as a premier firm on the Central Coast, I knew it was a firm I wanted to interview with! I quickly learned HW is like a family, and one I’m proud to be a part of. From the time I started I have always been encouraged to grow my career and push myself professionally while also being offered the flexibility needed for my growing family. I have been able to grow and learn through valuable training and experience. The mentorship, variety of work, and family atmosphere have kept me connected and committed to the firm and our mission.
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, MST 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.

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 Manager
I feel very blessed to be a part of the HW team. They were supportive and helpful in my move cross country. Since I started working here, I have been able to expand my knowledge of tax and accounting. I greatly appreciate the learning opportunities and mentoring that have been provided.
