What are some social events your company does?

We tend to celebrate in big ways. Hitting milestones is exciting for any business, and at Personal Capital we've set aside time to rent out Lucky Strike or take the office out to a Rockie's game to celebrate our success. Our holiday parties are guaranteed to be a good time too!
