I have been working at Status Labs full-time (More than a year)
Our current leadership is truly invested in their employees' development, growth and success. I love the comfortable office setting and collaborative culture that is continuously cultivated here at SL. We brainstorm better campaign solutions together and everyone is really helpful across departments to lend a creative hand. What is truly special is that our CEO, COO and the whole management team really celebrates wins (think TRAVEL! extra vacation days, bonuses, etc) and gives credit when its deserved so the whole team knows who is deserving of kudos when a project is doing really well! There's a ton of autonomy - which anyone with a background in corporate business can appreciate - and a freedom to try out new digital solutions, or creative new business offerings. The culture and success here might start from the top down, but input and suggestions have no barriers. Business transparency is huge priority. Overall it's the best workplace I've ever encountered.
In Austin we are extremely pet friendly (PRO!) and built mainly of young professionals - but that sometimes mean a messier-than-normal office. It's not a big point of contention, but anyone used to a very clean/corporate workplace might see our growing pains of going from startup to larger firm.
Advice to Management
Continue to invest in your employees - they are the digital pros on the ground who can identify new solutions and strategies. Thank you for building an incredible company!!
