Senior Manager

The values and management philosophy of McClintock & Associates has fostered a company culture that focuses on providing value to clients, but also drives its employees to be accountable and team oriented, allowing them to achieve a true work/life balance.
I was drawn to the work/life balance portrayed throughout my interviews. Each interviewer made it apparent that McClintock & Associates truly believes in a family first culture, and I have seen that demonstrated numerous times since I have started working here.
