An Insider's view of Amherst

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Something worth bragging about is our newly opened office in the Frost Tower, featuring one of the best views of downtown Austin, cutting-edge IT equipment, a well-stocked employee lounge, and state-of-the art infrastructure to host clients and facilitate cross-divisional team collaboration.

Kate

Vice President, Capital Management

What projects are you most excited about?

One of the coolest projects I worked on was the automation and integration of the Concur, Yardi, and Workday systems. Before, employees followed a very time-consuming process for filing expense reports. Integrating these systems simplified the process and saved the Company time and money. It was great to share that news with my fellow team members.

Nick

Having a voice that is heard and respected is what I always look for when maintaining a career with a company.

Todd

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?
