An Insider's view of Ombud

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I hear “How can I help?” on a daily basis. Team members are always looking to lend a hand or solve a problem. With a culture where everyone is willing, I’m looking forward to the office each morning, and find myself hanging around for an extra game of pool at the end of the day. I have mentors, friends, and family all in one place.
