Blackman & Sloop is a great place to work. They are truly focused on helping their employees grow and develop professionally. Everyone I work with is down-to-earth and easy to get along with. I love that the partners are very approachable. One of my favorite perks is the flexibility that the firm offers. I live 36 miles from the office.

Our firm invests a lot of resources in preparing staff for dynamic work so that we are ready to give clients proactive insights throughout the different phases of their lives and business cycles

When I was seeking an internship, I chose Blackman & Sloop over other firms because they made me feel like I was valued as an individual. Even as an intern, I felt able to make real contributions to the firm and not be just another face in a crowd of nameless interns. But the greatest benefit for me as an intern was definitely the incredible training I received. I gained invaluable knowledge and established strong, long-lasting professional relationships. The partners and senior managers do everything they can to create a positive work environment that fosters growth and success, both for staff and clients.

I could really sense the family-like atmosphere and comradery amongst everyone I met that day. Now, as an employee of the firm, I really feel like I have a daily stake in the company’s success. When the firm says they “pay it forward,” they honestly do, with their staff, clients, and community.
