“The self empowerment in this company is truly unique. As a team member, I am fully supported at all levels of management to take appropriate steps to fix problems that I identify or provide support for projects or departments that do not fall within my written job responsibilities. This company makes it really easy to be invested in its success and feel that you are making a difference every day. The people who work here are mostly all of the same mentality and it makes coming to work such a joy to see hard work celebrated and recognized,” says one millennial employee.

 

According to another millennial worker: “They offer opportunities not only to increase knowledge of the business(for advancement), but provide ways to better oneself as a person: healthy-eating retreats, global activism trips, etc. They also encourage use of vacation time, recognizing that everyone needs a break here and there for mental health and they would rather you take time off than take a buy-out for paid time off.”
