The job of an accountant is normally considered Halal as it does not fall under any command of prohibition.
Therefore, you may work as an account for the above mentioned company as long as your involvement in that company is only limited to accounting.
If you can find a job in your profession at another company which does not deal in any kind of Haram business at all then it would be better to work in another company even if the pay is less.
And Allah knows best.
