    I have been working at Fishbowl Marketing full-time (more than 3 years)


    good work and personal life balance
    They understand that people have lives outside of work, and that these lives might sometimes impinge on (or even take over) their time and attention. They realize that allowing for some work-life give and take means not only that they won't waste time and money on unnecessary turnover, but that they'll build loyalty and commitment. They know it's give and take, not give or take.
    They see fun, humor and relaxation not as the enemies of hard work, but as its allies.
    They have a purpose,
