Definitely varies by group. I'm in PEPI, based out of Atlanta and I've never actually been in the office. Going on year 4...

CG1, I haven't been to the office but it's cross functional and in a good part of the city. I would imagine it is used much more by some groups than others. I don't actually live in Atlanta, but I'd imagine I'd use it on Fridays if I did.

Do you know the recruiter name? I’ll be able to tell you which group that recruiter belongs.

I think it’s pretty good. I talked to a team two years ago and they were chill and also smart. Sounds like a good culture.

Chose to come here over B4 because of the culture. West Region CPI is a great group, I love it!

Really depends on the office. MDs have a lot of autonomy and can run their offices how they choose. Some are really involved at the office, others come into the office only a few times a year, and the culture develops around those behaviors. Which city are you considering?
