‘I think I speak for the entire staff when I say that we are thrilled to have made the Boston Globe’s ‘Top Places to Work’ list, said Erin Lamberti, marketing manager for Keystone Partners. “Our management team puts a lot of thought, time and effort into making Keystone a great place to work and it’s exciting to see those efforts have been recognized beyond the confines of our offices.”
