What’s the vibe like in the office?

It's pretty fun to work at a place that does good things and treats its employees really well. There is free coffee, oatmeal, snacks, Brugger’s Bagels every Friday, lots of giveaways (peloton bikes!), a ton of employee academic/fun clubs (I am in the RF, surfing, running, and math clubs), and fun laptop stickers.
