“As we enter each new chapter of our business, the gratitude, the joy, and the excitement grow correspondingly with each challenge,” says Scott Rovegno, president of Vodori. “The mountains are little taller each year, and getting to the top of them is so satisfying.”
Vodori is a digital marketing consultancy that connects global companies to their customers. Even though Rovegno is the president, his passion for Vodori’s product radiates throughout the team—absolutely everyone is invested, hard-working, and curious to see what they can do.
At this company, the employees have created the culture, not the other way around.
There’s a lot of opportunity to learn and teach. Brown bag lunches, tech talks, industry meet-ups, training sessions, and a healthy dose of on-the-job learning mean everyone’s always collaborating and meshing.
This has made the team super close-knit—they’re always getting together after-hours for trivia nights, happy hours, lunches, sports games, and more.
“I didn’t know anyone when I first moved to Chicago—the people here were so inviting, and I’ve continued to see that every time someone new joins the team,” says Staci McNelis, technical lead. “There are a lot of lasting friendships made here.”
Another unique aspect to Vodori is the company’s transparency and openness. There’s not a single a cubicle or private office in the company’s headquarters; the team has a weekly all-hands meeting discussing financials, client updates, and recent work; performance reviews are completed anonymously by everyone, not just the people above you; and the employees uses a quiz service to constantly learn new things about each other.
An enthusiastic, close-knit team and an office that encourages collaboration, learning, teaching, and openness? It doesn’t get much better.
