Work and Play

On Monday morning, when the elevator door opens on your floor at the office, do you ever ask yourself why you work where you do? Are you advancing your career or do you feel like your wheels are spinning?  Maybe the hours or even the travel are becoming too much?  If you ask yourself those questions and don’t like your answer then we challenge you to read on.

We recently asked our employees why they work for Smith & Gesteland and what they told us was music to our ears!

They said it is our ability to offer a higher quality of life outside of work while at the same time having the ability to build a rewarding and successful career of their choice.  They like the option of having a say in their career path, including the opportunity to become a future leader and owner of our firm, should that be a desire. And it doesn’t stop there, they also like working with a diverse group of clients: from biotech to manufacturing, real estate to construction, non-profit to family businesses.   Our staff have a great sense of enjoyment working with our clients because they meet our high level of standards including character, collaboration, success, and FUN.  And because the majority of our clients are local, our staff are able to be home at night spending quality time with their families and enjoying the things they love to do outside of the office. 

Becoming a future owner of our firm is very attainable.  We work closely with our staff to design a career path that will get them on the fast track.  We give them the training, the resources, the mentors and the work experience necessary to reach their career goals.


Smith & Gesteland offers our employees a comprehensive and competitive benefits package.
Among the benefits we provide are:

  • Medical and dental insurance coverage
  • Life insurance coverage
  • Long-term and short-term disability coverage
  • Flexible Medical and Dependent Care Savings Account (cafeteria plan)

In addition, each staff member is encouraged to participate in our informal mentoring program. The mentor is self-selected and is usually someone who has been with the firm long enough to have insight into the practices and procedures of Smith & Gesteland, yet remembers what it is like being a new employee. A mentor offers a forum and open communication for career guidance as well as inspiration and motivation.
