Right Management
No. 18 / Midsized Company

> I've been here 23 years. I've held a variety of different roles in the company as we've grown to the successful organization we are now. Right now my primary responsibility is for larger projects where there's some complexity to the logistics.

> I'm 62. I like to think I'll continue working for a while. I still find it stimulating. The benefits are good. The pay is good.

> I make more money than I ever thought I would, but that's not the main reason I come to work. I enjoy the challenges that come across my desk every day.

> What makes us a good company is we have a set of values. One of our values is fun. We want to be profitable because we want to sleep at night, but at the same time it's a fun place to work. It more has to do with feeling fulfilled and excited as part of the job, where the work environment is positive. There's a sense of teamwork here, a desire to learn, giving people opportunity. A lot of our work is dealing with people who are in stressful situations. We're proud of the quality of the work we do.
