What is Think’s workplace culture like in general?

Think Company has always been a people-oriented, employee-centered organization. We create a very collaborative culture for both work and socializing. How this looks has evolved considerably with COVID but, after shifting to a remote-first team structure, we’re finding new ways to remain close as teams and colleagues.

Our culture and core values make Think Company a place where people are respected for individualism and encouraged to be themselves. We strive to create an environment that’s both challenging and fun to work at.

This has translated to longer tenures for many Thinkers thanks to the personal and professional growth opportunities combined with a good lifestyle balance.

 

What opportunities are there for career development and professional advancement at Think?

Career development is a top priority for us. We offer many tools and incentives to promote this including: personal training budgets, educational team activities, and regular Lunch-n-learns.

Our managers across the company undergo training to conduct productive 1-on-1s, develop growth plans for employees, and provide regular performance reviews—which include opportunities for promotion with a quickly growing company.

 

What social responsibility initiatives is Think involved with?

Think Company has always strived to be a socially responsible company. A Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee was established about three years ago and has focused on making sure that we’re supporting all Thinkers while growing in a way that reflects the community we’re a part of. As part of this effort Think Company has worked to ensure pay equity across roles and transparency in salary bands to our employees. In addition to the volunteer activities that individuals participate in with paid Volunteer Time Off, we partner with HopeWorks and other local non-profits related to or who benefit from the work we do.
