    StarStarStarStarStar Current Executive Assistant in New York, New York State

    I am so happy. Giving 4 stars rather than 5 is only because of course there is always room to make benefits better. As a woman and a mother, the maternity and support system is wonderful. The work from home culture helps when a child is home sick and the balance of day to day work life is like nothing I have ever experienced. Things to improve- even more vacation and free food.
