We have Core Values that we believe in. We have a company Ping Pong league. We have parties that you’re invited to. We have a rooftop deck overlooking Nashville. We have an office in St. Louis that's right next door to where the greatest baseball team ever plays. We're in Kansas City too. It's a nice place.
