The Muse is committed to being an inclusive employer—not just on paper, but in practice. The company has its own Diversity & Inclusion Group—better known as DIG—that meets monthly and aims to ensure that The Muse is a welcoming environment for all. DIG makes sure employees are given the opportunity to engage with and learn about diversity and inclusion in an open and accessible way.
A versatile work environment is important for Musers, so the open office design allows for Muse employees to easily collaborate and work where they're most productive—whether it be from their desk, from the comfort of one of the office's couches, or in the quiet space of the office library. The Muse also changes up the scenery by taking the team offsite with an annual summer retreat, field trip to Coney Island, and winter ski day.
“The Muse genuinely cares about the whole human—people don’t work around the clock and are expected to take breaks and enjoy themselves in order to recharge. It’s a healthy environment.”
“Management is constantly trying to improve the way feedback is delivered and the way goals are measured—they’re trying to improve not only communication and the workplace environment but also the actual ability to deliver results.”
