What’s the most rewarding thing about working with Stern Cohen?

I never saw myself in the accounting industry, but I love my colleagues and rising to the challenge due to this industry’s intense competition.  I’ve been able to demonstrate significant benefits from marketing and that is truly rewarding.  Selecting an accounting firm is an important decision so being able to showcase the great things about Stern Cohen has been a pleasure!

What’s different about Stern Cohen?

We put our clients first and our advisors and services are highly regarded in the industry.  We’re modern and open minded so it’s been a lot of fun to market our brand. We’re a friendly and diverse group of dedicated people always willing to lend a hand – I love that! Plus we have Fridays off, with pay, in August 🙂
