Mowery & Schoenfeld Named One of the 2022 Best Places to Work in Illinois

Mowery & Schoenfeld, LLC has been named one of the 2022 Best Places to Work in Illinois. The awards program began in 2006 and is promoted by The Daily Herald Suburban Business.

This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in Illinois, benefiting the state's economy, workforce, and businesses. With a 77-question internal Employee Engagement and Satisfaction Survey, the people who work at Mowery & Schoenfeld are the ones who have nominated the Firm for this award. 95% of employees reported themselves as "very satisfied" with Mowery & Schoenfeld as an employer.

When asked, "What does this organization do that makes it a place where people would want to work?", our employees answered:

"A core focus is on the people. [Mowery & Schoenfeld] establishes an environment where employees are empowered and can make a difference."

"At work, I am surrounded by the smartest and most hard working people I have ever met. I am truly honored to work beside these individuals and I only hope that they see me in the same way."

"They are very welcoming, very kind and helpful. Going into a career in public accounting, I was nervous I would be in over my head, but everyone was very helpful towards any need⁠—especially when I needed something explained. I can tell they truly want to help further my career."

Managing Partner Jeffery Mowery believes winning this award is a result of the Firm’s foundational values of teamwork, determination, and community. “Mowery & Schoenfeld is dedicated to constant improvement and learning. Our open-door policy fosters a collaborative environment, setting the tone for a team-oriented culture. Whether a team member is here for their first job shadow or preparing to become a partner, our leaders are focused on creating learning opportunities for them.”

Currently, Mowery & Schoenfeld has 16 partners and over 100 employees who offer their expertise in tax services, transaction advisory, assurance, specialized accounting, wealth management, and technology services. M&S has taken special care to recruit top talent and gives its employees both the resources and opportunities to develop their careers.

Through the M&S Cares program, the Firm prioritizes giving back and providing opportunities for their team to support the larger community. Mowery & Schoenfeld has been recognized with the Illinois CPA Society's Time and Talent Public Service Volunteerism Award, awarded to only one firm each year.

Mowery & Schoenfeld will be recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Illinois awards in-person luncheon, coordinated by The Daily Herald Suburban Business on Wednesday, May 11. The final rankings will be announced at the event, posted on the Daily Herald Suburban Business website (, and published in a special commemorative section on June 26.
