Suggestions for improvement

  • Try looking harder for more inside promotions before just hiring from the outside. I’ve seen more outside hires come and go in the past year because they weren’t as committed as those of us who’ve been working our way up through the company

What I like about the company

When I first began, the company and my direct bosses were very culture-first oriented. Though this has changed in the company as a whole and also in my direct boss for the past year, I am greatful for everything certain coworkers and mentors have passed on to me over the years.

What I dislike about the company

Shifting the focus from entirely culture-first to entirely money-first just alienates your people. We can focus on a mix of both, don’t pick the latter over the former if you want to keep your good people
