    “If you have a good idea here, the firm encourages you to run with it. They want to be kept informed but they don’t micro-manage you. This is true for work related as well as with your community involvement. There is a lot of “informal flexibility” with our jobs. For example, many years ago one of our employees started a Christmas toy drive for a local charity. Over the years, more people have gotten involved in the effort and the employee who originally started the effort has retired, but new employees have taken up the banner. William Blair supports people taking time during the workday to coordinate all the logistics. Everyone wins! You can work with your manager to get schedule flexibility without having to go through a long chain of authority,” says an employee at this global wealth management firm.
