Dylan Lampe Talks Culture at Sammons Financial Group

Dylan Lampe Talks Culture at Sammons Financial Group

People at Sammons Financial Group are great. I have made many lifelong friends here. I have some family members who work here some friends from high school so it’s a great group of people and I think one of the things that we really value here that’s part of our culture is when we’re interviewing people we think about not only what’s on their resume and what looks good on paper but are they going to be a good fit…

The culture of Pointlogic

The culture of Pointlogic

I was born in Belgrade, in Serbia. After I finished my Bachelor, I decided to go abroad. Then I enrolled in Barcelona Graduate School of Economics. And then I really liked to be surrounded with international people, so I applied (to Pointlogic) and came to the Netherlands. My name is Manja and I work as a Data scientist at Pointlogic. I came to Rotterdam Central Station with huge, huge, huge suitcases. So I really don’t like that day. So I…

GEICO’s Culture

GEICO’s Culture

I would describe GEICO’s work environment as very upbeat. Very competitive, it’s very energetic. It’s very family oriented. The people here are friendly. It’s a very serious organization, but at the same time, we like to have fun here. If someone were to ask me, “Should I work at GEICO?” It’s an emphatic yes. We do ask you to work hard, but when you think about the stability that we have, when you think about the compensation we have, the…

Slavoj Žižek: Political Correctness is a More Dangerous Form of Totalitarianism | Big Think

Slavoj Zizek: Of course I have nothing against the fact that your boss treats you in a nice way and so on.

Translator: Phuong Cao Reviewer: Queenie Lee I work as a co-director at a substance abuse and co-occurring mental illness treatment agency. And not a day goes by that I take that for granted. In 1999, I was paroled from prison for the second time, for the … second time. Apparently, once wasn’t enough for me. Yeah, it’s pretty scary. That’s me. All told, I’d spent over eight years in prison, on probation or on parole for numerous felony drug charges….

Manufacturing in America: Perception vs. Reality – MoManufacturingWINs

It just doesn’t match up! Over seventy percent of Americans view manufacturing as the most important industry for a strong economy and a strong national defense, but only 30 percent of parents encourage their kids to enter manufacturing careers. Only seventeen percent of people consider manufacturing as a top career choice. It doesn’t match up! Did you know manufacturing workers have the highest job tenure in the private sector? Ninety percent of manufacturing workers have medical benefits and 78 percent…
