An Insider's view of Milyli

What are some social events your company does?

Our operations team does a great job planning our events. Since I joined the team last year, we've gone to events at the Lincoln Park Zoo, the Shedd, and several breweries. We've done whirlyball, game nights, trivia nights, Bingo... They offer a lot of variety and ask us for ideas in order to ensure everyone is engaged and having fun.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We collaborate a lot at Milyli because everyone has a stake in ‘Making It Like You Like It.’ In my role, I like to get ideas and input from all levels and departments – whether it's our review process or rewards program. We all want people to feel invested and bought-in on our projects, so collaboration is critical.

What makes someone successful on your team?

Communication is the key to success on the Milyli product team. Providing an environment where we can freely share our ideas, ask one another for guidance and communicate our challenges, helps keep our team focused and moving forward. Success is being able to reflect and ultimately learn from our previous experiences.

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Our products are closely tied to the evolving and expanding legal industry. As a result, changes in global laws and regulations demand new solutions, innovative approaches, and new ways of looking at industry problems.
