We also contribute to our local community through our company-wide “Caring, Serving, Giving” program, which includes:

  • Day of Caring – Each year the firm shuts down for one day so that we can participate in an all-firm volunteer day that benefits a local charity.  Organizations we have worked with in the past include Northwest Harvest, EarthCorps, and Jubilee Reach.
  • United Way Campaigns – Each year we coordinate a United Way campaign. We raise funds through the annual campaign and a chili cook-off.
  • The Big Climb – We sponsor a team of employees and their friends/families to participate in The Big Climb, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Washington/Alaska chapter’s largest fundraiser.
  • Food Lifeline’s Food Frenzy – We compete against other local businesses to raise funds and food for hungry children in our community during the summer months.
  • Treehouse Pajama Drive – Every December Clark Nuber PS partners with Treehouse to provide pajamas to foster kids.
  • Holiday Giving Trees – Each year we work with an organization to adopt several families. We decorate trees representing each family with tags listing wishes from each family member. Our folks then take a tag and fulfill the wish, leaving the gift-wrapped present under the tree.

    I worked at Clark Nuber full-time (More than 8 years)


    Great group of professionals and people really care about your development, career and learning. The upper management team works hard to retain their employees and will work closely with people to train them both technically and on the soft skills. Not only did I feel that I was working with highly capable co-workers, but many of the people there became my friends.


    Hours during Feb-April can be intense ~55 to 60 hours, but that's to be expected in public accounting. I do wish their 401k match was better.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Clark Nuber in December 2019.


    I have passed the first round of interview and I was invited for a second tour interview in their office in Bellevue. The friendly and positive atmosphere. Didn't feel uncomfortable. Was asked a few questions about my previous work experience, my main job responsibilities, how do I deal with my co-workers
