Carrot is, by far and away, the most flexible work environment I have ever seen. And I'm not even talking about the unlimited paid vacation (although that's obviously great too). No, I'm talking about the freedom that Carrot gives you to build your own future. Carrot has a motto of "Hustle. Team. Adventure." And they mean it. If there is something you want to do at work - whether that means landing a particular client, producing a particular creative idea, building a new software tool, whatever - you can do it here. BUT - you have to be willing to advocate for your idea, present a good BUSINESS case for doing it, and have the grit to see it through. If you can do that, that you can honestly do anything you want here at Carrot. Very, very few places are going to offer you similar freedom.
Mentorship is not a "discipline" here, per se. A lot of people are near the same age, which can at times make for a lack of default leadership. At times people who lack self-direction can feel lost here or unsure of what to do next. This, frankly, has gotten a lot better in the last year.
Advice to Management
Keep on keeping on. Paint a clearer picture of where employees can be a year from now, two years from now, and so on, and tell them what they need to do to get there.
