Unlike other awards, there was no self-nomination process, instead it’s entirely based on feedback our employees have voluntarily and anonymously shared on Glassdoor. To determine the winners of the awards, Glassdoor evaluates all company reviews shared by employees over the past year. This year, we are proud to be recognized as a Best Place to Work among companies with less than 1,000 employees according to those based in the U.S.
A huge thank you goes out to all our employees who took the time to share their perspectives on what it’s like to work here. We appreciate all the valuable feedback as it only helps us to improve.
Below are just a few words employees shared on Glassdoor that contributed toward the award and that made us feel incredibly honored to be recognized:
Best Decision I’ve Made – Starting at the top, Strive is led by partners and executives who care truly about doing right by all people in the company. This dedication manifests itself in continuous opportunity for personal, professional, and financial growth for each employee – and I believe is the main reason we continue to attract and retain such amazing talent.
Great Company, Great Culture – The culture of the company is what makes this company go and why you see such high ratings. It truly seems that everyone from leadership down is geared towards growth – the goal is to obviously grow the company, but a heavy focus is also geared towards the individual and making them a better professional. The biggest thing for me is opportunity for growth. Strive doesn’t have the, ‘next man up’ mentality and they mean what they say from the very beginning – ‘It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been with the company, those who are rewarded are those who work really hard’.
Set Up for Success! – Being new to this industry, my biggest fear in joining the team was that I wouldn’t have any idea what I should be doing and would fail. My training process was so thorough, it honestly eliminated almost all of my fears. All of my coworkers shared advice and strategy with me and helped me each step of the way, in process and organization. I have really feel so well supported! The company as a whole breads great culture, everyone cheers and encourages everyone.
Overall, Great Place to Work – Strive is growing and evolving, which makes for an exciting, entrepreneurial environment. Your time is what you make it at Strive, and leadership is there to genuinely support you at every step. Also, Strive embraces a local delivery model with engagements located specifically in the Chicagoland area, which makes for a healthy work-life balance.
