A substantial portion of consultants in the Washington, D.C., location have non-business advanced professional degrees; many of them are former lawyers. Located in the nation's capital, members have access to the numerous museums and monuments.
In the past we have taken retreats to Charlottesville and Puerto Rico, though most recently we went to Banff in Canada with our other colleagues in the Mid-Atlantic office complex—Philadelphia and New Jersey. We host monthly Super Friday lunches to help our consultants come together, and encourage the office to get involved in community activities.
We have created volunteer groups to paint schools and replace floors in local libraries, as well as sponsoring an office environmental initiative to improve our impact on the environment. Drawing on musical talent from across the Mid-Atlantic office complex, we have a band—the Screaming Marvins—that plays at our frequent parties. Our consultants enjoy our roof deck with its views of the city for lunches and social occasions.
