How is the work/life balance at 14 West?

Pros

14 West encourages self-starters and perfectly pairs independent work, self management, and collaboration. The company itself is huge, and encompasses so many fields and projects. I feel like I can work here for the long haul and grow in my current position, or move to a different role within the company with referrals from my management team and close colleagues. An entrepreneurial spirit is rewarded! People want you to succeed here, but you have to want it too. This company encourages you to be your own advocate for your own success, and they'll give you the tools and resources you need to achieve your goals. 14 W is a big company with big ideas and big opportunities that maintains a close community feel. People are encouraged to better themselves as individuals and to maintain a healthy work life balance so they can be the best version of themselves both at work and at home. They truly embody the philosophy that happy, well-rounded people make successful employees.

Cons

To be honest, I think any downside is something that could be mitigated or resolved if you're willing to talk to your management about your concerns!

How flexible is your schedule working at 14 West?

Pros

14 West emulates Baltimore’s charm in its offices, unique people and overall passion. I’ve been with the company for almost five years. Each year, I’ve had the opportunity to meet amazing people. I’ve worked with marketing teams, an international development group and a legal team during my time – not one day is identical to the next. Each opportunity required a love of learning, an entrepreneurial mindset and some grit. Our businesses are based on strong ideas, and there are opportunities (and support) if you’re willing to take risks and bet on your ideas. 14 West calls Mount Vernon, the cultural center of Baltimore, home. The company culture engages the neighborhood with discounts to local stores, gym memberships and events in Mount Vernon and throughout the city. Personal benefits also include a 401k program, health/education benefits and work from home flexibility. At 14 West the benefits help build a “good” life both in and out of the office.

Cons

Are you willing to fail? A traditional training program is not guaranteed at 14West, so you must be resilient. Be willing to chart your own course. Be aware - learn to communicate effectively and kindly and know when to ask for help and when to “figure it out.”
