    Marketing Director

    Over the last 30 years, and certainly at an accelerated rate over the last 5 years, we’ve made enormous strides in our overall employee experience. Our team members achieve great things personally and professionally. As you know, our workforce is remote and thus, it’s not clear what breaks you’re referring to. If you are at home and working, you would take the breaks you need. You refer to a burnout rate which we have not seen. The emotional wellness of our teams is strong, and we continue to monitor this and to enhance our offerings to make mental health a focus for our leaders and teams. If you are a current employee, please speak with HR or your team manager to develop your career and balance. If you have been laid off and are angry, speak with us and allow us the opportunity to offer you support in this area. All our best.

    Great environment, fun office, a lot of parties, and nice individual offices.

    They make staff write fake reviews online or push candidates to write positive ones. Worst compensation in the industry, they hire entry level recruiters that make you lose clients, poor training, and low career growth potential
