“After 5 years of working at small CPA firms, I moved to Peterson Sullivan so that I could increase my experience in multiple accounting industries as well as to learn from a talented group of professionals with a broad range of experience.  I have found that PS is a great place for me to accomplish these goals.  The office is a fun, positive environment, and there are so many people here who want to help me reach the goals for my career.  It has been a smooth transition starting with the firm and the positive culture is one of the big reasons for this successful transition.  I am excited to continue to grow in my career at PS.”

“After spending just over 1 ½ years in public accounting, and then 2 ½ years in the governmental sector, finding PS was a breath of fresh air.  The environment and culture is unlike anything I’ve experienced yet.  They care about making the employees happy and it shows.  From the minute I walked in, I was immediately felt welcomed and part of the team.  Whether it’s the annual softball, volleyball (even kickball) or 4:15 happy hour, there’s always something going on to help keep everyone connected.  The managers and partners are genuinely interested in your career path and will do what it takes to help you advance to the next level.”

“The level of competence and proficiency was noticed right away, and it’s a great feeling to be surrounded on a daily basis by this level of professionalism.  I wake up excited to get to work on a daily basis, and don’t see this changing any time soon.  To anyone considering PS, I would absolutely recommend giving them a look and would hope to see you here!”

“When I first walked in the doors at Peterson Sullivan I got a different feeling than what I had felt at any other company.  Everyone was so welcoming, my interviews became more of how would my personality fit with the firm.  Immediately upon starting my internship everyone began inviting me out to lunches, happy hours, and to play on the company softball team – it was as if I had been working there for years.  This culture, openness, and working with great people is what makes me eager and excited to go to work every day.  I have already made countless friends and connections and couldn’t imagine starting my public accounting career anywhere else.”

“When I went through the interview process with Peterson Sullivan I knew there was something special about the firm.  Everyone was so welcoming and excited to share their experiences.  This mentality has definitely carried through and I am so happy I am able to work for such an excellent firm with the most amazing and fun people.  Just starting out as an associate can be intimidating, but everyone here is more than willing to help answer questions and share advice.  Peterson Sullivan is much more than just another accounting firm, it’s a place where professional and personal work together in the best way.  I am excited to continue to grow and learn in such a positive, challenging, and rewarding environment!”

“Upon entering the office of Peterson Sullivan, I was filled with a certain kind of excitement that I had never felt before.  Growing up I always wanted to do “business,” but I never knew that I would be brought in for my first professional job in the heart of downtown Seattle, in an office filled with diversity and opportunity.  From the partners of the firm to the office administrators, all have been exceptionally welcoming, encouraging me to ask questions, and have made many adjustments to best fit my personal success.  During my 13 week internship, I was exposed to all different kinds of Business, Non-Profit, and Individual returns, as well as projects within the firm’s SALT practice.  Learning about the tax profession was very exciting despite all outside perspectives and assumptions, however, I was most impressed with the open door policy of Peterson Sullivan, and all the extracurricular engagements I was able to participate in.  I am ecstatic to say that I work for Peterson Sullivan – what a great place to start my career.  People here are not your typical accountants, they work hard and play harder!”
