Why wouldn’t you want to work here?
I’m a non-traditional student and it was important for me to find a work environment that was welcoming and supportive. I found this environment at BNN. From my internship through to now, the firm has been committed to my success. Not only do I have numerous opportunities for career development and growth, but I also work with great people and feel empowered to step away from the office and do the things I enjoy on a regular basis.
For many years I have been working at BNN on a reduced (part-time) schedule. I am active in Portland’s art scene by serving on creative nonprofit boards, managing a local artist’s studio collective, and maintaining an artistic practice and studio in downtown Portland. BNN was willing to accommodate my desire to work a reduced schedule, and for years I have been able to enjoy a rewarding career and advancement in my responsibilities while simultaneously fostering my other interests.
The flexibility I’ve had to spend time with my family, friends, and community, and even just have more time for myself, is incredible and I’m thankful for it. It’s funny—the balance between work and personal life is woven into the fabric of how BNN operates which means each person can create whatever mix of work and life they want.
When I’m not working, I sing in the Manchester Choral Society (MCS), travel, try out new local breweries, and hang with family and friends. Right after I started, BNN became a corporate sponsor of MCS and continues to sponsor the choir year after year. BNN has so much flexibility and allows us to shape our work schedule based on what works best for each individual, especially during tax season. Because the environment here is so open, I’ve made some lifelong friends and can always count on those friends to work with me collaboratively.
The firm is supportive of employees and encourages cooperation among everyone. It’s important for me to work for a firm where I can make space for the things I enjoy in all facets of my life, and my ideal balance between work, personal life, and hobbies is to introduce elements of each area into my day. Driving my classic Corvette to the office on a nice day, swapping stories with my co-workers about our weekends, and helping people in my personal life understand that taxes don’t have to be scary are all small ways I blend my worlds.

At BNN, giving back to our communities is part of our core values. And we carry those values throughout our work, in and out of the office. Whether participating in a fundraiser, serving on a non-profit board, partnering with a local school, volunteering to clean up a local park, serving food at a shelter, or participating in a fundraiser, we strive to be a meaningful part of our communities. Employees throughout BNN answer the call to “give back” through participation and leadership in our hometowns.
