The Insider – A Behind-the-Scenes Look Into Life and Work at eVestment

by  Mary Ann Felts
Jul 08, 2014

Since I started working at eVestment in 2012, it was clear this place was different. eVestment stands out by the way people here think big and push themselves to meet goals that most would describe as unthinkable. But it also stands out in other ways that continue to impress me. From the perks like weekly team lunches and uncapped PTO to the way each associate’s ideas are truly valued, considered and in many cases implemented, it is understandable how a place like this earns top workplace awards year after year. I mean, where else can you sit down on a random Thursday and watch the World Cup with 150 of your friends on the big screen? Play in a three-on-three all-star tournament in the parking lot? Or conceive, design and develop a new software feature in 24 hours?

Basketball

While I think this is an amazing place to work, you don’t have to take my word for it. Check out some responses from a recent survey that went out to our associates on the culture of eVestment.

What do you love most about the culture at eVestment and why?

  • “The sense of ‘family.’ People here are about you and want to see you happy in your role and performing well. From the founders all the way down to your teammates.”
  • “I love eVestment's culture because of the way we deliberately and intentionally create an environment which fosters a high degree of motivation and inspires hard work. This is done by getting corporate structure and bureaucracy out of the way of high performing individuals and allowing associates extremely high degrees of personal autonomy to determine how they will accomplish their work.”

What is one of your favorite things that the company does for associates and why?

  • “eVestment has a brilliant way of offering praise to employees who exceed their expected goal – whether it be an email sent globally about an outstanding job, a fantastic trophy for an individual to realise they are appreciated or a trip to a tropical destination [for meeting your sales quota]. Sometimes the smallest things mean the most, and being recognised for hard work really makes an employee feel appreciated.”
  • “I really enjoy the encouragement to be active/get in shape. As a developer it’s easy to spend all day at a desk. I've been enjoying the fitness challenge and being encouraged to go out at lunch and get exercise.”

What do you think is unique about eVestment’s culture versus other companies and why?

  • “I've been at mega corporations and 40-person companies. Stated company values, if truly modeled by senior leadership, always trickle down and dictate the culture. While I am still new to eVestment, I already see that the leadership and team truly live by the core values. It's not just a page in a handbook. I already see eVestment as being unique in that sense.”
  • “I feel other companies pay only lip service to considering their employees as assets. It feels here like associates are truly valued for what they bring to the company. I also feel that the transparency and accessibility of the founders is rare and special.” 

Crazy Pants

For these reasons and many more, we would like to introduce “The Insider” blog to give you a glimpse of what it’s like to work here. The goal is to give you a taste of the day-to-day, provide general career tips, chronicle fun team events like our fitness challenge, publish interviews with associates on what their jobs are like, post pictures of our team in crazy pants and otherwise provide general awesomeness. You see, this year we are doing some mad hiring, and are looking to attract some star players. Hopefully this blog will help give all you stellar candidates out there a reason to check us out and give you some insights that will help your career in the process – whether or not you end up with us.

Check back here for updates, but know this isn’t the only place you can find us. Be sure to catch us on our other social media channels. And, if you haven’t already, take a look at ourinfographic for more details on life at eVestment.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alpharetta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at eVestment (Alpharetta, GA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Referred by a friend that works here already. Had a simple phone screen with HR, followed by a more technical phone screen that I didn't do particularly well on. They gave me a little 24 hour homework assignment in ExtJS that was pretty fun, and scheduled me for an onsite the day after that was due.
