Why It’s Great to Work Here: “Our members work hard, but there is also a strong social and fun element here. Besides great social events, CBM launched its diversity and inclusion group, D-PATH, in 2018 … Diversity, inclusion and fun are why people love working at CBM.” —Daniel Weaver, president and managing partner

Cool Perks: This office knows how to party, with a fall picnic, year-end holiday soiree, annual karaoke event and post-tax season bash. Staffers recently set sail on their second pirate-themed cruise on the Potomac River … Sign up for the softball team, do sun salutations at yoga classes, or join the book club … Flexible schedules and paid parental leave are available.

Work-Life Balance: “CBM allows team members to choose whether they work remotely, in the office or on a hybrid schedule with flexible hours … Team members are empowered to build their lives and successful careers simultaneously, according to whatever schedule accommodates both goals.” —Weaver


Mental Health: There’s an Employee Assistance Program, and a $40 monthly physical fitness stipend for use at a gym or wellness facility is also meant to promote mental health.

Office Layout: “The office layout allows for fun conversational exchanges—in the kitchen, at the front desk, or in team member offices.” —Weaver

Office Culture: “Employees care about each other. We know each other’s family members, pets and favorite sports. We help each other in professional and personal growth.” —Ginger Wu, supervisor


The Last Word: “Management welcomes and values input from employees and takes their opinions into consideration.” —Wu
