An Insider's view of Civis Analytics

What's something quirky about your company?

One of my favorite parts about Civis is the culture of learning—talking about academic papers is encouraged as well as sharing weird facts about things people are interested in. I also love the people at Civis because they genuinely care about each other and also serving the wider world.
