    Very family oriented friendly people. Very Mom-friendly in terms of schedule flexibility. Great work-life balance. Lots of perks. I found it very impressive with how senior management was able to manage this firm quite well through a tough financial market. have nothing but optimistic outlook on the future of this company. Very inspiring group of people. Encouraging work environment.
