    Wow. Where to start. I love that the people I work with exhibit the same core values, I love that the CEO and I can sit down for lunch on Fridays and talk about my ideas, I love that the CEO remembers all of our names. I love my job and the duties and responsibilities with it. Adventure Equipment Check Out, Excellent Benefits, and great staff.

    Pros

    Fantastic Faith based business. The on-boarding process and training was done with excellence. Every person was extremely. My entire training experience was easy and fun. Who gets to start their training by playing a game of corn hole with the owner of the company? It set the tone for the entire week of training. Every department was great to work with from H.R. to I.T. to my direct managers. Could not ask for a better start with a better company. So excited to be a part of this team.

    Cons

    I think I ate out to much and gained a few pounds.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and I look forward to a great future.

    Pros

    Great Faith Based Culture with amazing people surrounding you. It was a culture shock never working for a faith based company or faith based industry before but I couldn't be happier with the professionalism and kindness of the industry as a whole. It is a low stress sales position and I feel like I can relax and be more myself when selling compared to someone always pressuring me everyday in old sales roles. I enjoy the consultative approach that we take and the relationship building sales we do. We truly care about our customers and truly want to give them the best experience and the best platform/campaign to promote their products. Management has been great so far and is very transparent about the vision for the company and overall goals and communicate these in an organized professional manner. Very good Team Environment (at least on my team) and we like to have fun while we work.

    Cons

    The base for a sales rep is a little lower than previous positions which make it tough while building up a pipeline, but the potential is there to make great money. Sometimes a little quiet for a sales floor, but we are working on that!

    Advice to Management

    Continue your supportive nature and continue your transparent communication. Maybe spend a little more time with the new hires to make sure they are doing okay and not overwhelmed. Create maybe a team lead or go to person if the manager is unavailable because we know management has a lot on their plate.

    Pros

    Work life balance is respected and encouraged, even when you're in a position that working remotely is easy and is the norm in the field. I find my deadline to be realistic and well planned out for the most part. My voice is heard in discussions and my opinions are considered. Management is involved in the daily routine which is nice for quick and easy feedback. Colorado Springs isn't the worst place to commute, but the office location being right of I-25 makes for easy access which is a bonus.

    Cons

    The benefits package needs some work. 401k matching is well below the average. Heath/Dental/Vision plans offered are competitive though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on your employees and investing in them like you are currently doing.

    I have been working at Outreach full-time

    Pros

    Having had the opportunity to work in leadership roles in a variety of great organizations over the years, I must say that Outreach has far exceeded my expectations. The heart of Outreach is clear, from the CEO throughout the rest of the organization... this is a place where you can contribute and truly make a difference. Outreach believes in relationships, both internally and externally, and this is modeled well by the executive team, directors and managers. The work environment is incredibly positive and you truly sense that those who work at Outreach care, both for you and for the people they serve.

    The corporate culture is perhaps my favorite aspect of working at Outreach. The culture is driven by respect, compassion, teamwork, innovation, opportunity for personal growth, opportunity for advancement, a commitment to giving back and fun. Every day I feel as if I have had the opportunity to help make the world a better place. You definitely cannot say that about every organization.

    We celebrate together as a company, but we do not just celebrate company achievements... We celebrate personal accomplishments of those who work here, whether it is a new marriage, a new baby, a marriage anniversary, a cool trip to a new country, something special about a worker's child, etc. Who you are as a person matters here at Outreach. We have free food Fridays in the summer months where everyone gets together from the various divisions and we enjoy lunch together. We have outdoor equipment, like mountain bikes and kayaks, that we can check out and use in the beautiful Colorado outdoors. We are encouraged to grow, stretch ourselves, learn new skills and learn more about ourselves. Outreach believes in promoting from within and offering new professional opportunities.

    A perfect example of Outreach's culture and desire to really care for their employees came this past year as they were making adjustments to employee benefits. HR learned that, by making some changes, they would be able to help the company save a considerable amount of money on medical insurance benefits, while at the same time improving the benefits to employees. Most companies would be happy that they could improve the employees benefits and would then pocket the savings as an organization. Employees would be happy with the better benefits, a win/win for employee and employer alike. But here at Outreach, the CEO and executive team made a decision that most organizations would not. They made the medical insurance change and improved employee benefits, but rather than pocketing the savings, Outreach invested those funds into improving the employee benefits even more! This is a quality that you rarely see in organizations of any size... but that is just how the leadership at Outreach thinks and acts.

    Outreach truly is a great place to be!

    Cons

    Hmmm... the parking lot will need to be resurfaced soon. Is that a 'con'?

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the fantastic work!
