What’s the most rewarding thing about working with Stern Cohen?
I knew zero about accounting before I joined Stern Cohen, but it’s a fascinating industry and I love rising to the challenge due to the intense competition in this market. I’ve been able to demonstrate significant return on investment from marketing and that is truly rewarding. Selecting an accounting firm is a very important decision. So being able to showcase the great value clients receive at Stern Cohen is a job I take seriously.
What’s different about Stern Cohen?
We put our clients first. 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 one of a kind 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 the summer. More time for tennis! 🙂
