An Insider's view of Neighborhoods.com

What are some social events your company does?

At Neighborhoods.com it seems like there's always some kind of social event or activity to look forward to. There's been wrestling events, outings, movie nights, rock climbing, as well as various civic activities. Just last night a large group went bowling. There's always something in the pipeline.

How does the company support your career growth?

We have an excellent biannual personal development process during which each of us has the opportunity to share our personal and professional goals with our direct supervisor, from whom we receive feedback. This process results in an action plan in which each of us is asked to articulate three goals with three action items attributed to each goal.


Neighborhood Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We hire really smart people and we listen. Almost every product feature or way of doing things comes from an employee’s feedback or idea. And people aren’t afraid to speak up. Leadership is a key principle on our team, regardless of title.



How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

A very large portion of my time has gone to talking with other teams --- the C-suite, VP of Marketing, Content Directors, pretty much anyone and everyone - to understand what their goals are and the challenges they face in meeting them. As I'm designing solutions to their problems, there's always a lot of back and forth until we're ready to deploy.
