our culture

At Macpherson Kelley we encourage a healthy work/life balance with access to Flex and Wellness programs, paid study assistance and leave, and a casual dress code policy. We also provide laptops to everyone so they can work flexibly in ways that work best for them and clients.

We work hard but know how to have a good time while we do it, especially around the table tennis tables. We look out for each other and want to see everyone succeed.
