The thing is we are pretty awesome and humble. We are all about loving our jobs, helping people invest, and doing things our way.
We’ve been rocking Foolishness since we were founded in 1993 in Alexandria, Va., by brothers David and Tom Gardner. We get a lot of recognition for having a great culture. People tend to join the Fool for life. Like any great company, our culture starts with the Gardner brothers, who are two of the best people you will meet in life. If you haven’t stopped by our office to meet them, you totally should. We promise to at least pass you off to a minion for a tour.
The company’s name was taken from Shakespeare, whose wise fools both instructed and amused, and could speak the truth to the king — without getting their heads lopped off. Our culture is as irreverent as our name. We truly love each other, our company, and our customers (Except RBinDenver23. Seriously, guy, stop posting pictures of your cat on our site).
To educate, amuse & enrich.
