“Why are you in this business?”
A simple question I like to ask when I interview account managers and system engineers from the industry. The answer I consistently hear is they have chosen this path to build financial independence for their family. Following this question, I consistently hear frustration. Frustration in the cut-throat culture that is encouraged amongst employees. Frustration that the focus may be to sell the company. Frustration that the majority of wealth goes to a few leaders at the top of the organization, so they can stroke a check for a yacht, a winery, race cars, airplanes or whatever elite status symbol they decide to buy at that time.
We purposely set out to build a different kind of organization, one that values transparency. Transparency to our customers on our business. Transparency to our employees on how they are compensated. Our model is different because we share 35% of our corporate profits every year with our customer facing employee partners. This creates a tight team that cares about building a long-lasting company; so this job is their last job. From a culture perspective, this is a key reason we were named to San Diego Business Journal’s Best Places to Work. It’s a simple fact: Our employees love our company!!
Sustaining long-term partnerships between our customers and employees is critical and supported by our business model. We want people on our team to build their own financial independence. We are hiring. Call me.
