I have been working at Updater full-time (Less than a year)
If you've been lucky enough to work in a high performing culture previously, you'll quickly recognise it when you get to know Updater. Initially, I was attracted to the fun, smart and engaged team as well as the thoughtfulness that goes into the overall employee experience and it's safe to say it's lived up to expectations. They go to great detail to create an incredible work experience where others fall short.
+ Updater is incredibly mission-driven and is built by people who understand the company's goals and how every hire/employee directly contributes towards them. This, in turn, ensures that people know what they are working on and why it matters.
+ Employees have tremendous transparency into company and product performance. Leadership communicate regularly with complete transparency. As a company, we align regularly on goals and performance, be it weekly at our company all-hands meetings or at multiple annual all company off-sites. All employees are able to contribute product ideas or cross-departmental ideas and are encouraged to do so.
+ The employee experience team makes Updater a very positive and fun place to work. The company has regular social activities and thoughtful personal gestures that make it a great environment to call work.
Nothing obvious to highlight here, and certainly nothing that can't be or hasn't been quickly remedied. The company is pioneering a new space so it can pivot quickly depending on strategy or business opportunities. You need to be comfortable in a fast paced and changing environment.
Advice to Management
Keep up the transparency and investment in people! It's appreciated.
I applied in-person. I interviewed at Updater.
Casual discussion, the hiring managers are very friendly and assess your suitability work wise and culture wise. There is a phone and in person interview which are both fairly short.
"There's little that beats this feeling," says our VP of People. We're thrilled to be recognized again as a Crain's Best Places to Work in NYC!
