    Insider's spotlight

    What are some social events your company does?

    Did we say we like food? Every Friday we have a huge lunch spread from one of Boston's best lunch places - and it's always something different. Tuesdays are for hot bagels and muffins. "Thirsty" Thursdays feature the finest local craft brews we can get our hands on. Oh, and we have a Bevi machine, plus all the Caribou, Dunkin' and Starbucks coffee you can drink!
