    I have been working at Promontory Interfinancial Network (More than a year)


    Put simply, Promontory Interfinancial Network has an unparalleled work environment. From the many perks given to employees (generous leave, matching 401K, lots of free food, access to a gym, holiday party, Halloween party, family picnic, monthly birthday parties, etc.) to the fantastic employees, I cannot say enough good things about this company. I have worked at a lot of places over the course of my life and this company is, hands down, the best. It was no surprise when we were named one of the Washington Business Journal's 2016 Best Places to Work.


    I know this may be hard to believe but I honestly cannot think of anything bad to say about this company.
