Working at Hood & Strong

At Hood & Strong we offer our employees the opportunity to grow and succeed in today’s fast-paced and multi-faceted world of financial services, while also appreciating that you are an individual with personal interests, goals and responsibilities.

What Our Staff Has to Say

“The partners at Hood & Strong are open to new ideas. You’re encouraged to be creative and find ways to improve things. I’ve gained a wide variety of experience in a short period of time here.” 

“I like the variety of the work assignments I’ve experienced at Hood & Strong. At a national firm, I was limited to a very small area of practice. I like working with well-known Bay Area businesses.”

“I used to work at a large firm and felt lost in the size and bureaucracy of the company. At Hood & Strong, everyone knows who I am and cares about my career goals and personal happiness.”
