Soren believes strongly in meritocracy. Advancement and promotion are predicated on predefined requisites and metrics. When a member of the team meets the requisites for a promotion, they are advanced. It’s that simple. With each advancement comes a preset salary as well. No politics, posturing, or pay gaps!
Meetings are held once a month for team members in each role to discuss and improve, and to ultimately advance.
Employees are sorted into teams called “pods”. Each pod consists of individuals that work together on a number of customer accounts with a common purpose. Every member of a pod relies heavily on the performance of her or his teammates and is invested in their success.
A “Pod Leader” is assigned with the crucial task of helping each person in their pod to achieve their financial and professional goals. This person works one on one with pod members to help them develop strategies, create next-steps, provide resources, and ultimately help push them to the top.
