What turns a good job into a great one? It's all about the culture. For three years in a row, we've been named one of the best companies to work for in San Diego by the San Diego Business Journal, due largely in part to our dedication to company culture.
After working in a variety of different office environments, joining the team at Business.com was a breath of fresh air. Yes, the company was doing exciting things and the job itself was an incredible opportunity. But the culture was something totally unique.
Business.com puts heavy emphasis on commitment, hard work, and collaboration, but we're also dedicated to encouraging fun and getting to know each other. As our CEO Tony Uphoff put it to me in my interview with him, business IS personal, and your coworkers are much more than just that.
In addition to weekly happy hours, quarterly offsites and company-wide competitions like Cube Wars, we like to go all out for holidays-and Halloween is no exception. Dressing up is strongly encouraged, and to sweeten the pot, we have a costume contest that awards the most creative getups.
Below are some Business.com's festive team members from today's Halloween celebrations. Tell us your favorites in the comments below.
