GreenbergFarrow is a unique organization and one of the industry's most successful firms. The firm's uniqueness and success are based on the belief in genuine employees with potential. GreenbergFarrow offers a foundation for employees to build an enriched professional career, as well as competitive benefits.

"When asked what kind of person I'd like to come to work for GreenbergFarrow, I say that, while I value and look for knowledge and experience, I am no less interested in personality. To me, the ideal employee is intelligent, original and independent. We're interested in people with growth potential - individuals who can make a rich, long-term contribution to the firm while enhancing and developing their professional career. We want the very best. And to get you - and keep you - we've built the company on a unique combination of diversity and security.

What does that mean? People who join us in one capacity can move to different departments, accumulating an enormous amount of collective knowledge and ability. The potential exists for any employee to develop within a discipline and shift to another department, or even discipline, enjoying a number of experiences as your career develops.

As an employee-owned firm, all of us have a stake in our future and a share in our success. Self-ownership also means steady-handed management, rooted in a sense of responsibility. We're a unique organization and one of the industry's most successful thanks to our belief in finding people with potential and enabling them to realize it. GreenbergFarrow can be the foundation upon which you build an enriched professional career."
