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.

Paying It Forward

In my 15 months at Ramsey Solutions, I’ve seen some pretty incredible life transformations—not only for our customers, but also for our team members. There has been quite a buzz the last few weeks after our company Christmas party. Many people are aware that each team member received a $900 shopping spree to Target and […] 

The Unintentional Lie

I didn’t have time. That’s a lie. It’s unintentional—it’s not a malicious lie or a concealment lie—but it’s still a lie. Unintentional lies are so common in our culture that we don’t even think of them as lies anymore. Instead, we use them to protect ourselves from the truth that we have failed to take […]
