Featured Review

Current employee - Principal / Managing Director / General Manager

Sara and Anne started the company with the idea that they wanted to provide an opportunity the greatest level of individual success for their staff while allowing staff to also prioritize their life. They do this, and then some. They are deeply committed to not only the success of their company, but also to those that work there, and we are establishing systems to ensure that this focus is retained as we grow. Beyond the culture-focus, the company is very much looked to and watched by the industry. We are working to maintain fluidity and flexibility in our skills and services that will be of greatest benefit to our clients looking forward. The landscape of our industry is quickly evolving; it is our ability to evolve that will continue to drive our success. Last, from a professional standpoint, individual growth is so important. There is no limit to what we can go after and do. Innovation is strongly encouraged (even if it means failure at first). All these factors combined - along with the smaller details that aren't making it to the surface of this commentary - contribute to ILLUME being a fabulous place to work. I'm proud to be a member of this team.
