Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It is professional yet lively and relaxed. The office is always buzzing with people exchanging ideas and discussing different ways to reach our goals. You'll see a couple of dogs leaping down the halls and people talking about what they’re going to wear to next office party. It’s fun to work in an environment that works hard, but plays hard too!

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I utilize our company’s tech platforms but place highest value on face-to-face interaction for collaboration. I gain a great deal of value from the digital platforms, but the most productive means of communication have proven to be in real-time and in person. At the beginning of projects we usually meet to give everyone an opportunity to contribute
