Category: Culture

Every day, we work together to create something bigger than ourselves. We work to change lives. We work to give hope. And we don’t just pay lip service to these ideals—our values are the DNA of our culture.

And what a culture it is! Our team members are provided the opportunity to attend Financial Peace University from the very first day. Our leadership takes pride in kicking everyone out of the office by 5:30 so we spend our evenings with family instead of hunkered down at our desks, and Dave provides a free catered lunch once a month. Team members enjoy a no-gossip policy, loads of free products, legendary Christmas parties … the list goes on and on. We work hard, but we also play hard.

But hey, don’t just take our word for it! Dave’s company has been recognized by the Nashville Business Journal as one of the BEST places to work in Nashville six times in a row! Our leadership truly believes that when you treat team members with excellence, you get excellent results.
