I recently had my three year anniversary at Galen. I dabble in a lot of things here ranging from financial responsibilities, human resources, administrative duties, and planning our annual company trip. My days are never the same!
What’s your favorite part of the job?
My favorite part of my job is planning our company trip. It is in a new location every year, usually somewhere warm to escape the dreaded winters in our office locations of Chicago, Boston, and Burlington. The location is usually (somewhat) of a surprise to our employees. We have a lot of remote employees so being able to bring everyone together once a year is really awesome.
Oh, and that I get to bring my dog to work! 🙂
What are three adjectives that you think describe the culture at Galen?
Hard working, fun, team-oriented
Are there any awesome moments that stick out over the past 3 years?
Members of the Chicago office playing Kings Cup on the balcony of our hotel room on my first company trip in Punta Cana, DR.
What’s the most important thing you’ve learned from working at Galen?
