"Preferred was recognized as one of the Best Places to Work, and I wholeheartedly agree. I like the friendly, collaborative work environment, the employee-centric culture, and the commitment to innovation. I feel valued and respected here, and those are common sentiments I hear from my co-workers. No wonder so many people have been here 10 plus years!"

"There are so many things I truly enjoy about working at Preferred, but the main reason is the company culture. So many years wasted at other companies just feeling invisible, yet here at Preferred, I feel seen, heard, and valued. It is nice to be in such a wonderful environment that fosters acceptance, collaboration, and values diversity."
