An Insider's view of Personal Capital

What are some social events your company does?

We tend to celebrate in big ways. Hitting milestones is exciting for any business, and at Personal Capital we've set aside time to rent out Lucky Strike or take the office out to a Rockie's game to celebrate our success. Our holiday parties are guaranteed to be a good time too!

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I work with and rely on Data Engineering to provide the data architecture needed for my analyses. I brainstorm promotion ideas with Sales, Marketing, and Product and track results in real-time. My insights and recommendations get presented to upper management to evaluate and implement, ultimately providing business intelligence using data.

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

To make sure I'm regularly formally connecting with each member of my team, I schedule bi-weekly check-ins to see how they're feeling about everything from day-to-day challenges to long-term opportunities they want to tackle. In addition to that, we have an open work environment and I sit right in the middle of my team!
