CougsFirst! Sponsors Voted Best Places to Work

It comes as no surprise that many of the top companies to work for in the state of Washington are Cougar -owned, -managed and -affiliated. With the strong values of balancing work and life, as well as a dedication to their community and the well-being of their employees, Berntson Porter & Company and Ryan Swanson & Cleveland are two of the many CougsFirst! sponsors voted best places to work.

CougsFirst! Sponsor Berntson Porter & Company has been recognized again as one of the top 100 companies to work for by both the Puget Sound Business Journal and Seattle Business Magazine in 2018.

“At BP, our primary focus has always been to treat people well – from our employees internally to our clients and the community.,” Co-Founder and WSU Alum Greg Porter said. “These awards are really a reflection of the core values and the outstanding team we’ve built.”

Another CougsFirst! sponsor to receive recognition from Puget Sound Business Journal is the Seattle based law firm, Ryan Swanson & Cleveland. The law firm is saturated with crimson and gray, including the managing partners.

“Ryan Swanson is proud to be named again as one of Washington’s Best Workplaces by the PSBJ!,” said Kari Brotherton, Lead Estate Planning Attorney. “I feel fortunate to work side-by-side with people who are happy to be a part of a great law firm with a long-standing culture of caring for each other and the great clients we work with. Our ongoing efforts to foster a collaborative environment, encourage growth, and find opportunities to engage in the community together have always made Ryan Swanson a great place to work.”

Congratulations to these two companies and the rest of the Cougar -owned, -managed and -affiliated businesses to receive recognition this year from Puget Sound Business Journal, Seattle Business Magazine, Spokane Inlander and Spokane Journal of Business.
