"Great Environment with a Great Group of People"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 28, 2017

There really is nothing that I would change. Murtha Cullina has provided me a chance to do what I want to do in life with a great group of people. There are just a few people that need to tone down their attitudes.

Pros : The people here are wonderful. Training covered everything, but when a problem arose, there were always people willing to help me out. The people here make you feel like you belong.
Cons : Like with any workplace, you will always have a bit of office politics. The same goes with Murtha Cullina. Thankfully, though, the vast majority of interactions I make during the day are civil with friendly faces.
