Careers

At Sweeney Conrad, our foundation of “people first” begins with our employees — because we know the success of our firm stems from the relationships within it. We consider our employees family and foster a positive work culture, encouraging a healthy balance between work and life; building a career over having a job; continuing education and skill development; and being actively involved in the Puget Sound community where we live, work, and play.

Our employees are talented, knowledgeable, and benevolent people. We’re privileged to be on this journey with them, and to walk alongside them every step of the way to help them achieve their goals. In turn, our employees love coming to work. Our commitment to “people first” allows them to thrive — which in turn allows them to help our clients succeed. We’re proud of our employees and our culture, and have been recognized by Accounting Today as one of the “Best Accounting Firms to Work For” and by Puget Sound Business Journal as one of “Washington’s Best Workplaces.”

“At Sweeney Conrad, I feel respected both as a person and an employee. There are opportunities to learn and grow both professionally and personally. The shareholders encourage the staff to have a life outside work and always ask about our weekends and other interests. I look forward to a lengthy career here.” Kristina, Tax Manager

“Knowing that I wanted to go into public accounting after college, I interviewed with both national and local accounting firms. Initially I was drawn to the national firms due to my perception of their prestige. But after interviewing with Sweeney Conrad, I immediately knew this was the place for me. The family-like atmosphere and commitment to clients and community was exactly what I was looking for. To this day, I don’t regret my decision. I’ve formed relationships with coworkers that will last a lifetime.” Jeff, Audit Shareholder
