The company was one of the first to create special perks for its employees. The comfortable campus includes residences (for onsite conferences), free breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks throughout the day. It also has free day care and a full gym. It has personalized work spaces and many places for employees to sit and work around the campus (comfortable benches an chairs everywhere). However, the company has recently been purchased by XYZ Incorporated who creates financial software for many different industries. XYZ Incorporated has a different corporate culture and wants to integrate its off-site services (multi-national) within the Atlanta site.
