"Brandes is a top-notch firm with people who create a warm culture that encourages growth, new ideas and work-life balance. It is led by a group of people in management who understand that when things come up, flexibility is key, and providing that to their employees will help them as a company in the long run."
"Culture is key. Collaboration both within teams and across teams is great. People love what they do and what the company does for them. It shows when you look at tenure — most people have been with the company for over 20 years."
"Excellent benefits and compensation package. Many programs, clubs and activities allowing employees to be involved as much or little as they want. Very ethical and inclusive."
