Additional Culture Details

You don’t just work at Bader Rutter, you want to work at Bader Rutter.
We’ve focused on turning 275 employees into one team and that team has developed a synergy that’s not only front and center with our clients, but it stays with our team after the close of business each day.
Work and life balance are essential to our teams and we have spent years adjusting our organizational perspectives for our move to downtown Milwaukee. We adopted a flex time policy more than a year ago in preparation of flex needs that make our employees' downtown work experience extraordinary. We have hired a Learning and Development leader who has implemented management and team training, Bader Rutter University and a monthly speaker series so our employees can regularly engage and grow through their preferred vehicles.
There’s Treat Club and softball games, we grill out and order in. Our staff volunteered to greet the community during Doors Open MKE and we regularly host our professional groups in our new space. You’ll spot our employees out and about in our #bractive clothing. Our one-of-a-kind concierge doesn't just make us coffee. Her weekly infused water flavors have yet to be repeated and with the onset of fall, she makes us hot apple cider every afternoon. We rotate playlists and blend margaritas on Fridays. We work, think and inspire through all the senses every day.

We’ve made a life of our work, and this has significant impact on our clients. It's because we love the hard stuff that matters.
