“The strong sense of collaboration is a big part of the culture at Purple. It’s beyond anything I’ve experienced in my career. This not only makes Purple a very rewarding place to work, it also contributes to the firm’s reputation as a place that does things differently, thinks outside of the box and is committed to providing unique insights to all of our clients.”

Regardless of the client or the project, Purple is a place where everyone is extremely focused on putting forth the absolute best work to meet, and often exceed client goals.”
