Everyone spoke very highly of the work-life balance, their lengthy tenure and the respect they are shown by colleagues. From these conversations, I knew FaegreBD would be the right fit for me.

When you joined Faegre Baker Daniels, how did it feel to adapt to a new culture and to fit in with your new colleagues?

-Joel Runck (Business Development & Marketing, Minneapolis)
What do you enjoy most about your role?
“I enjoy the people I work with the most. Before I started, I expected a corporate law firm to be cold. But no matter who I run into, people are friendly and make the firm a welcoming place. The people I interact with are talented and do great work, which motivates me in my own job. I thrive in fast-paced and high-performing places, and FaegreBD provides me that environment. I also like the atmosphere of constant improvement, from leadership all the way to individual employees. We are always seeking to make things more efficient, improve client service, and help each other.”

“At FaegreBD, I feel like a trusted and valued professional. My manager seeks and trusts my technical recommendations and is open to collaborating and brainstorming together. She helps me grow by providing professional development opportunities and personal mentoring for both my technical and management abilities. IT professionals are empowered to improve their skills, become experts in their field and shape their careers. In the last four years, my performance has been recognized through promotional opportunities, and I have enjoyed using my new skills to reach my career goals.”
-Michael Nhep (Technology Engineering & Operations, Minneapolis)
How does the firm support work-life balance?
“FaegreBD’s leaders understand that people do their best work when their professional lives are balanced with rest and relaxation outside of their jobs. As an IT professional in a global organization, my job doesn’t always fall within the standard nine to five hours. However, supervisors support work-life balance, and the afterhours necessities of our IT organization are distributed equitably and not placed on one person’s shoulders. Learning about the unique challenges of running a global IT organization has been a wonderful growth opportunity, and it’s been exciting to interact with colleagues around the world while supporting their IT needs.”
-Fiona Gilliland (Technology Engineering & Operations, Denver)
How has the firm’s wellness program impacted you?
“The implementation of the firm’s wellness program has been educational and challenging! I enjoy the many different health programs and the friendly competition with my colleagues. The program is not only challenging but opens new ideas relating to wellness, mindfulness and overall health.”
-Rhonda Lopera (Office Administration & Operations, Chicago)
What opportunities have you had to serve your community?
“Community service is one of the firm’s core values, and it shows! I have had the opportunity to volunteer my time through Minneapolis Cook for Kids Crisis Nursery, eMentor Program, Habitat for Humanity, the Have a Heart Drive benefitting local LGBT youth in Minneapolis, and the Greater Twin Cities United Way Program, to name several but not all. By volunteering with my colleagues, I reinforce my commitment to the collaboration and teamwork necessary to perform my work at a high level.”
