Company Culture

They are honest and transparent. Expectations are very high but they make this clear from the start and give you all the tools and training to meet those expectations. I’m surrounded by driven people just like me. I like working with smart people who are competitive but not cut throat. Softworld does a great job picking people who think that way. You can be great at what you do...but if you are arrogant and disrespectful about it you won’t be successful here. It’s a collaborative environment all the way up to the CEO, CFO, and COO to the back office support staff.

Support from management

Incredible management support at ever level. My manager is always available to help. Can walk into an executive’s office who anything and they are willing and able to help. No empty suits here.

Teamwork

Best team I’ve ever been on. Everyone helps you. The senior employees will always coach you as long as you are willing to work hard. People work hard here and hard work is respected by your peers.

Freedom to work independently

If you are following the process and working hard you have a lot of independence. Very focused on end results. They will dig into your metrics closely if you are not producing but it’s done in the right way. They are trying to help you improve your results, not micromanage random actions. With that said, they have a process and best practices that are constantly reinforced. They want things done the right way. This is not a place to cut corners.

Internal Communication

Sometimes it is communication overload because of how fast things move, but I never feel like I’m in the dark. Decisions are explained and we know what’s going on and why things are happening.

Gender Equality

Not an issue here. Women are regularly promoted into management roles. Top performers are a mix of men and women. I have never felt like there is a “boys club” here.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Not an issue from what I’ve seen. Professionals of all ages here at all different levels.

Career Development

Constant training. Formally put together and delivered.

Overall compensation for your work

Lots of career paths to choose from here.

Office / Work Environment

We just moved into a brand new headquarters and it is amazing. EVERYTHING is new. Free food and drinks everywhere.

Environmental Friendliness

Open door policy and they mean it. People disagree about stuff but it doesn’t get nasty here.

Work-Life Balance

It’s a lot of hours. No doubt. There are uncapped commissions but to make six figures you have to put the hours in. The top earners work a lot. That’s not a Softworld thing...that’s staffing.

Company Image

Granted I’m biased, but Softworld is one of the most respected firms in the area.

Job Security

Company is consistently listed as one of the fastest growing in the industry. If you put the work in, you me job is more than secure.

Handicapped Accessibility

First floor

Workplace Safety

Keycards to get in and out.

Challenging Work

Staffing is HARD...very challenging if you are up for it.

Inclusive / Diverse

Tons of diversity in the company. People from all over the world and different walls of life.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More sales training and opportunities to transition into outside sales positions.

What I like about the company

They are polished, professional, and fun.

What I dislike about the company

Honestly I have no complaints. They really care about doing the right thing the right way. It’s an inspiring place to work with amazing leadership.
