They have literally done so much more than I ever expected to make sure my work/life balance was as great as possible given the constraints of the job. Secondly, I'm surrounded by brilliant and like-minded people that I can not only trust in all aspects of the job but also in having an intelligent conversation on any topic on my mind.
