Employee Reviews

  • “Amazing culture. Working with great people and enjoying best-in-class work/life balance.”
  • “There is no competition amongst our people. We have a lot of humility and focus our energy on supporting each other, our clients, and our community.”
  • “Exceptional culture and commitment to individuals. A family atmosphere where we all pulled together during the pandemic to not lay off anyone. Compensation is average so be prepared to accept that as a tradeoff for the good things.”
  • “Small enough to only have the smartest/best people whom you want to work with. Local and community-oriented.”
  • “We actually follow through on ‘all that culture stuff’ that so many firms talk about. If I need to leave early on Wednesdays for two months to coach a kids' soccer team, it happens without any pushback. People are encouraged to take their PTO. The things going on in your life outside of work matter.”
