At Greenough, every employee is truly a valued member of the team. You have the opportunity to learn and grow in a collegial atmosphere where the entire agency is working towards the same goal.

Having a decade of experience in the Boston workforce has taught me how to succeed, learn when I fail, but also to trust my gut and my intuition. This is exactly how I felt the day I walked into the Greenough office during the interview process. I immediately felt right at home and within minutes I knew this company, role, and culture were all worth pursuing. Greenough provides top tier counsel for our clients, but we also invest in one another. By focusing on quality employees and not quantity, we are able to connect inside and outside of our client teams and push each other to want to be better for the larger picture. I am lucky to wake up every morning and call Greenough my place of work.
