Work With Your Friends (But on Your Own Schedule) at Ascend
If you crave the freedom to do your work according to your own methods and schedule, you’ll love working at Ascend, a nationwide HR services and talent acquisition firm.
Employees are enthusiastic about its relaxed culture, calling the office “unique,” “fun,” and “laid-back.” “We have the type of environment where you’re able to create your own work structure,” says Kristie Lopez, talent acquisitions coordinator. “Everyone depends on you, but no one micromanages you; it’s up to you to figure out how you’ll make a difference in the company.”
While team members are independent, that definitely doesn’t mean they’re working in a void. Employees are super close-knit and love to eat lunch together, hang out outside the office, and support each other’s ambitions and progress.
“One day, I came to the office and there were a dozen roses sitting on my desk with a note from my co-workers telling me just how much they appreciated me,” Lopez says.
Michael Fuchs, talent acquisition specialist, loves how positive everyone in the office is. He explains it’s an environment in which “people are not afraid to make a mistake.”
So if you’re looking for a workplace that fuses the benefits of doing your own thing with the benefits of working with friends, look no further.
