Leadership is amazing. I've never worked for a CEO and leadership team that are so passionate about what they do - it brings an energy to the office that makes you want to work hard. There's a clear direction for the company and full transparency into company performance. Team members are collaborative and smart - a lot of bright people to learn from. Products are world-class and the industry is fast-paced and competitive which means the company (and employees) have hustle.
There isn't a formalized orientation or training program. You'll learn quickly because everyone is willing to teach and answer questions - it just makes getting over the learning curve a bit less efficient.
Advice to Management
Establishing an orientation and 101 training program would be a great way to engage new employees immediately, familiarize employees with the company (and dept roles and interdependencies), the industry and products, as well as our market position. Essentially individual contributors could be more effective more quickly with even a basic onboarding program.
I also think it would be great if each dept. shared their respective goals with the company so we can all see how each dept. is helping to drive achievement of company goals, and to identify areas of interdependency and misalignment.
