“FB Rice is a much smaller firm, compared to some of our competitors, which makes the company very tightly knit despite employing a diverse range of personalities and backgrounds. Having come from bigger firms, I have found the difference here is that the company cares about people more—both employees and clients. There is also a greater sense of work/life balance, resulting in happier colleagues.”
