“Absolutely. If I need to call someone with a question, I get a live person and not a recording on an 800 number. The training has been interesting too: At Baird, we were trained on the technology, the products and all the resources we had available to us. You know what we were trained on at my previous firm? Sales and prospecting. That’s it. They trained us on what they needed, not what we needed.
“This is maybe the best example of what Baird is like: We’ve been here long enough to have experienced some annual meetings and firm culture events. The business portions of those events are all business, which is as expected, but the cultural portions – they're a little corny but they make you smile in spite of yourself. That combination really captures the essence of Baird.”
