What are some things you learned at the company?

I've learned the importance of teamwork and communication. At PE, all projects are team-based with a lot of things in motion during each step of the process: from the sales team to the delivery teams to the finance and leadership teams. Having that camaraderie and communication makes a smooth process that works internally as well as for clients.
