Current Employee - Recruiter

I have been working at Softway full-time for less than a year

Pros

The people. The people. The people. It is a very diverse office and everyone treats each other like humans. Softway is a special place and that is a fact. The culture is unmatched. For Softway,... the culture is organic. It's not forced. It's not company lunch or happy hour or team bonding events (we do have these but this doesn't create our culture). It's how we treat each other on a day to day basis - with authentic communication and interactions. The culture lives inside of each person that works here. The biggest impact on me that Softway has had for my personal life is I am able to be a mother and successful in my career with out feeling like I am failing at one or the other at any given time. There is no mom guilt here. If my child is sick all I have to do is communicate it to my team, go get him from daycare and finish my day at home. I have worked for companies in the past that would allow me to do this but then hold it over my head later - NOT SOFTWAY! And I am SO THANKFUL because my child gets sick often. That being said they do offer flexible hours and remote days. The benefit packages are up there with the best as well. Softway truly puts it's people first. They live their mission statement of bringing humanity back to the workplace - it's not just words on a website or a wall. When you have struggles professionally or personally your teammates are there for you in a very genuine way as well. I can't brag on the people that make up this team enough. They are all uniquely awesome and very talented.

Cons

Softway isn't perfect. They do have some growing pains like any company. But unlike most - they are open to the feedback, suggestions and ideas. They are constantly trying to change and improve. ... One area they can improve is career paths and inputing some processes. They don't want to run like a typical corporate office but some structure would be nice.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing. I love working here, feeling successful in my role at the office and at home, working with the team you have built, being empowered by my leadership and having my... thoughts heard.
