In 2017, New York produced the top perm biller globally and saw 6 in the top 20 for perm and contract billers across the global business.

It's a relaxed yet high performing working environment and an extremely fun team! Quarterly lunch clubs and incentives. Free drinks on Friday's. Holiday incentives. 1hr 30 minutes for the gym at lunch time.
