I have been working at Venables Bell & Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great culture, partner involvement in all accounts, and leadership is invested in doing right by the clients and also by the people of VB&P.

Cons

We are still pretty young, SF-based, and independent, so there are of course challenges that come with that.

Advice to Management

There are more politics here than people might think and acknowledge, but it's still all about the work, which is great.
