    September 11, 2019Director, HR

    Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you did not take advantage of all the events we have here in the Columbia office from free Friday lunch, Team Appreciation Party, nacho bars, etc just to name a few. We also encourage our teams to do their own events as well. As far as salary, we review our salaries compared to market at minimum on an annual basis and align our pay with what is trending. And yes, our dogs are a great perk.
