1. So many amazingly talented people 2. 9/80 schedule allows for every other Friday off 3. Very caring & very understanding of issues that arise in personal life. You are never guilt tripped for taking time off or missing a day of work. 4. Dozens and dozens of employee benefits besides the standard benefits package.
