An Insider's view of Conversant

What's something quirky about your company?

We have a company band, made up of anywhere from 30 to 40 employees at a given time. The band has a large following and performs at charity events around Chicago. They also perform a full set at Conversant’s holiday party each year at the House of Blues. My jaw hit the floor when I saw my peers up on stage rocking out.

What does your typical day look like?

My days are a mix of execution, idea generation and collaboration. Our focus on executing revenue-generating strategies for clients requires attention to quality while looking to automate and innovate our processes. My creative mindset comes into play daily when discussing how we should approach a client campaign and other objectives.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Conversant is deeply invested in helping you grow your career. I started as a Database Administrator and was promoted to Senior Database Administrator. After a brief stint away from the company, I was re-hired as a Senior Client Integration Engineer in Operations and am now a Senior Solutions Integration Engineer.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Conversant has a very good work-life balance, including unlimited PTO. As a young adult, traveling around the world is one my top priorities and working with a company that aligns with that is a huge plus. I have had the flexibility to visit 7 countries. That flexibility is one of many things that has kept me at Conversant for five years.
