13. WE ARE:
Picky about the organizations we
work with and the people we hire.

No one is too good to do anything –
that includes throwing out the
garbage or webbing someone’s desk
as a Halloween surprise.

We are picky about the
organizations we work with. Every
staffer gets a say in the organization

freakin’ talented you are.
