An Insider's view of PowerReviews

What's something quirky about your company?

You've probably heard of Casual Fridays... here at PowerReviews, we hold Formal Fridays!?! This started out as a fun, small initiative that our Tech department started. It's since grown to several more participants at PowerReviews, including our CEO.

Who doesn't look good in a tux?!?

RJ

Sr. Customer Success Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

I believe that intellectual curiosity is the key to success on my team - not just identifying an issue and solving a problem, but truly understanding the root cause and implementing new process or controls that prevent the issue from happening again.

Jillian

Chief Financial Officer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

In the past year our teams have collaborated to deliver over 14 differentiated products, features and capabilities to bring value and ecommerce best practices to our clients and most importantly, delight their customers.
