A little over a week ago, I shared my feelings about what a great work culture means. From this stemmed an idea: why not ask all of the other employees here what they think of work culture? What do they believe creates a great work culture, and how important is it to them?
The first "volunteer" I interviewed was Mike. Mike brings the humor & some mad ping pong skills to the AgencyBloc table (we think he's secretly been practicing without us). Check out what Mike feels about work culture:
When I say culture, what do you think of?
To me, culture is the feeling and the vibe I get from the people I work with. Do they like to work hard or do they slack off? Do they enjoy their work, or do they just get through the day? Just the overall feeling in a work environment is what I think of culture as.
What does a company’s work culture entail?
Like I said in my last answer, just the overall vibe. But it really comes down to the people. It’s aaaaall about the peeps!
What does a good work culture mean to you?
A good work culture means enjoying your environment, the people you work with, and the work that you do. A good work culture should make people want to work with a passion. When everyone is striving to be great it makes work fun!
What is your favorite thing about going to work?
Making awesome things happen with awesome people...and playing ping pong! But for real, everyone here is passionate about their job and you never hear people complaining. Around here, when problems or issues arise people just work harder and with more focus.
What is the most memorable moment thus far that has happened at AB?
Moving into our new office for sure! When I first started, I sat in a small office all by myself and literally fell asleep once or twice (just kidding Adam). Now that the whole team sits together in an open office environment, there is so much collaboration and teamwork happening...and ping pong. It’s awesome! It’s exciting to watch empty desks get filled up as the team continues to grow. PS: check out our careers page, we’re hiring!
So, what do you think?
