What Is Your Opinion About Our Culture, Environment, and Work-Life Balance?

In regard to Segue’s culture and environment, they are enjoyable. People are celebrated with small gestures such as monthly birthday celebrations. Also, people are celebrated and acknowledged when they’ve passed an exam that’s vital for the job. As well, we take time to listen to each other; rather whether it’s outside of work, life, or work-related.

In regard to work-life balance, management is flexible in regard to work hours or working from home. An example is when my daughter was 3 years old, she was in the hospital for about a week and I was able to work from the hospital.
