Key factors in the selection of RBF Consulting as the best firm included the working relationships within the company among the team members and with RBF leadership, the richness of the corporate culture, vision and mission of the firm, professional development opportunities, employee benefits, family atmosphere, advanced technology, social events and involvement in community service activities.
