Our culture of Freedom & Responsibility translates to the support we provide our team. Our core philosophy is people over process. More specifically, we have great people working together as a kickass team. With this approach, we are a more flexible, fun, stimulating, creative, and successful organization. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the author of The Little Prince, shows us the way:
If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.
Our culture is based on our core values,
Encourage independent decision-making by employees
Share information openly, broadly and deliberately
Are extraordinarily candid with each other
Reward only our highly effective people
Avoid rules wherever possible
New employees often comment in the first few months that they are surprised how accurate this culture description is to the actual culture they experience. Around the world, we live and create our culture together.In fact, hundreds of our global employees contributed to this document.
We do not seek to preserve our culture — we seek to improve it. Every person who joins us helps to shape and evolve the culture further. We find new ways to accomplish more together. Every few years we can feel a real difference in how much more effectively we are operating than in the past. We are learning faster than ever because we have more dedicated people with diverse perspectives trying to find better ways for our talented team to work together more cohesively, nimbly and effectively.
