Doesn’t pay too much. Some business are rude and not fun to work with, but that is typical of a service position.

Sprout has shown... that as an organization we are committed to DEI and creating an inclusive work environment. I feel like I can bring my authentic self to work and focus on my career and personal development.

Working from home brings challenges of isolation, anxiety and less culture. Sprout is doing a great job trying to help with this, but it’s hard to do remotely.
