You can't quantify it, you can't market it, and for that matter,
you often can't even adequately describe or categorize it. But the
simple fact remains: the culture of a professional services firm
matters. A lot.
At Solomon McCown & Company (SM&), ours is a positive,
collaborative, dynamic, "we're in this to win" culture that
encourages every one of us to play at the top of her or his game.
It starts with the leadership -- Helene, Ashley, Michal, Ed -- and
thrives in each and every member of the team. We encourage friendly
competition (including monthly media quizzes for prizes), firmly
believe in nurturing potential (all questions and ideas are welcome
-- whether from an intern or veteran employee), have faith in our
colleagues (people can accomplish amazing things if you let them),
and consider our clients' missions our own (we are dogged in
pursuit of their goals). As Mark Twain once wrote, "Make your
vocation your vacation," and for us, communications isn't just a
career but a way of life.
In short: We love what we do, and we have fun doing it. It's why
our team likes to come to work, and why our clients like the work
