"I started as a co-op, or basically an intern. They didn't make me do grunt work like get coffee and stuff. They had me working on real assignments right alongside managers and true leaders. When it came time for me to choose a job, I saw potential in the company and knew the people there would help accelerate my career. And the numbers... It's small like a family. It's not like a large corporate company, where you get lost."
