Create Big Things Without Burning Out at Trustwave
Trustwave provides its clients with sustainable and smart security business solutions in more than 96 countries around the world. The company offers the services and technology that businesses need to manage their information security and compliance programs, including cloud-managed security services, integrated tech tools, and teams of security experts, like ethical hackers and researchers.
Despite having offices in Chicago, Denver, and Warsaw, Poland, the company is highly connected around the world and employees are constantly switching roles throughout the company: “Even though we work on different products or in different offices around the world, we’re all behind the same objective,” says Jennifer Saddoris, Senior Director of Compliance Operations at Trustwave in Chicago.
Trustwave wants its employees to feel continuously supported, and it understands how easy it can be to experience burnout after coding or creating for days on end during big projects. In order to counteract the effects, Trustwave strives to provide opportunities for employees to blow off steam and encourages them to take plenty of time off to tend to their well-being.
The coolest—or the “sexiest”—thing about Trustwave, according to Rachelle Felix-Blackmon, Manager of Customer Relations Management, is that you have the chance to create protocol and processes that will outlive you: “If you’re interested in anything in our corporation, you can just raise your hand and we will make it happen. You don’t have to ‘stay in your lane.’”
