Commitment to staff and clients. Technologically savvy. Work/life balance.

These characteristics describe Snyder Cohn, a mid-sized firm that has been serving the Metro-D.C. area since 1927. This eight-partner firm is proud that four of those partners are women (a statistic way above the industry average) and that many of the firm’s 75 employees “grew up” at the firm.

Designated by Accounting Today as a Best Firm to Work For in 2016 and as a green firm by the Montgomery County Green Business program, the firm exemplifies a winning strategy for employee growth and satisfaction. Partner Cheryl Heusser, one of the many who have grown up at Snyder Cohn, says “There’s a reason we’ve been around this long. The firm’s leaders have always been visionaries when it comes to what it’s people need. Whether it’s learning about technology or about the business development skill that can propel your career forward or adapting work schedules to accommodate personal needs, our firm has your back.”

Snyder Cohn’s leadership team believes the only way to fully support its associates is to keep communications open, honest and timely. When they make a new hire, they ensure that person is a good fit. As Cheryl says, “Communication is a two-way street. We want our professionals to be as authentic with us as we strive to be with them. In a relationship, each party works to meet the other’s needs. We live that as a company and believe that’s why we have such a high proportion of people who stay for the long term.”
