Company Updates

  • COVID-19

    Terakeet acted early to send employees home as COVID-19 entered Onondaga County. Employee well-being (including mental health) was our primary concern, as many began working fully remote for the first time in their careers. The IT and HR teams had been preparing for a distributed workforce in recent years, so we were fortunate to have a smooth transition on short notice. Executive leadership continues to hold honest, thorough updates in weekly company-wide meetings outlining how COVID-19 is impacting or could impact our business and how we will respond. The HR team is hard at work making resources available through Employee Assistance Programs and team-sourced lists for emotional support and mental wellness. They have also contacted each employee individually to make sure their personal and professional needs are met.

  • Terakeet's culture is built upon the unique passions and special interests of our employees. This starts at the top, with our Co-Founder Pat Danial's love of the arts. We recently began displaying some of his favorite photography and other artwork from Light Work in our offices - Read our latest blog post to find out more! (Photos by Julie K.

The numbers don't lie. Our employees are overwhelmingly happy to work at Terakeet... and we're happy to have them!

 

In our opinion, work should be meaningful. And fun. It should be something you look forward to and something you can take pride in. We take care to provide an environment that breeds collaboration, teamwork, creativity and innovation. The result is a direct ability, by any and all employees, to impact the immediate results and long-term trajectory of the company.

 

We’re Terakeet, and we have opinions about work. Strong opinions. Such as: Work should be about more than punching a clock. An office should be more than a cool space and fancy equipment. And coworkers should be much more than just the people you work with. 

 

We think work should be a place you go to connect. Where you go to collaborate, learn, and grow. Where you go to make a difference in your life and the lives of people you care about. And we believe the best work is done when people buy into a cause — when they feel like they’re a part of something greater than themselves. 

 

We’ve built the kind of place where we always wanted to work, a place that nurtures strong relationships among coworkers, where anyone can share a big idea, and where success is celebrated. As we’ve grown, we’ve learned a lot--and we wanted to pass those lessons on while giving the outside world a glimpse into what it's like to be part of the Terakeet family. 

 

Maybe you'd like to work here. Maybe you know someone who already does. Or maybe you just stumbled upon us and like what you see so far. Whoever you are, we want you to join us as we build a community of awesome people. We are Terakeet.

    I have been working at Terakeet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Terakeet has been great since the first day. The new hire orientation and training was very helpful to hit the ground running and they really made us feel welcomed. I love the work we are doing here and everyone I talk to loves their jobs. Everyone in the company is super friendly and always willing to help with any questions you may have. All SEO managers and even upper management are very accessible and helpful. The flexible hours and ability to work remotely allow for a great work/life balance. Although I have only been here a short time I already love the job, the work and everyone I work with. Terakeet really cares about all of its employees and goes out of their way to make this a great working environment.

    Cons

    Working remotely I can't take advantage of all the good food at the office :(

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    SEO Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Terakeet (Syracuse, NY) in August 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a response in about a week. The entire interview process was one of the most efficient and pleasant processes I have ever gone through. I first had an interview with HR and then about three more interviews with SEO Managers and Directors. Communication was quick and I had from them exactly when they said I would everytime. Everyone I spoke with was friendly and interested in what I had to say. I think you can tell a lot about a company from their interview process and it was a main reason I decided to accept the offer. It really was such a pleasant experience.
