    Very friendly, supportive environment Excellent training Beautiful and functional work space (standing desks, ergonomic chairs) Political discussion is not encouraged (previously, I worked in an environment where the managing partner had to send a firm-wide email to get employees to tone down the political rhetoric, as it was poisonous to the office climate) Excellent benefits (exceptional healthcare plan,... vacation time, support services, pension) Supportive HR Appreciative group of coworkers
