Coopers & Lybrand Careers & Info

Former CEO: Nicholas G. Moore

Status: Merged with Price Waterhouse to form PricewaterhouseCoopers (pwC)

This company has been officially in business since 1998, when Price Waterhouse merged with Coopers and Lybrand. Before merging with Price Waterhouse in 1998, Coopers and Lybrand had already an established track record in business dating as far back as 1854. This business was, in fact, a business entity that had formed as a result of the merger of two other companies in 1957. The first company had begun operations as a solo accounting firm. Although it started with William Cooper, his brothers were also involved in building the enterprise only a few years later. They called this incarnation Cooper Brothers and Company. The second company was originally called Lybrand, Ross Brothers and Montgomery. They had been in business since 1898.

The company still operates as a limited liability partnership, or LLP, which creates a different dynamic among the branch members than that of a classic corporate structure. The firm started as a full-service accounting and assurance provider for corporations, small and mid-sized businesses. They have expanded offerings to include tax advice, business management, corporate financing, and other consulting services. Since the company operates on the international market, they are faced with the changing landscape and the need for employees who have a detailed working knowledge of the current business environment as well as the relevant regulations. The firm has major offices located in Tokyo, Norway, Peru, Egypt, Riyadh and Melborne.

The activities in Europe account for almost half of the firm’s revenues. The other major site of activity is in North America. One of its achievements was the company’s ability to survive the recession in the early 1990s. The landscape of standard accounting practices has been changing as the international standards for accounting practices are being considered in the United States. The firm has already been through this dilemma once, because the original accounting texts were established for a UK audience and did not meet the unique needs of the American industries at the time. The ability of the Coopers and Lybrand culture to adapt to the changing accounting environment has contributed to its longevity.

Because of the extensive interaction with major corporations around the world, Coopers & Lybrand careers offer many options for relocation to its employees. If living in a different country with a good salary and benefits is appealing, this might be the perfect company to apply to for a position. Bilingual applicants are valued, and the international atmosphere is a dynamic and challenging environment. If culture and life-long learning are a part of one’s career plans, then working at Coopers & Lybrand could be the ticket to a full and rewarding lifestyle. These generous Coopers & Lybrand benefits allow employees to have both job security as well as advancement opportunities.
