An Insider's view of Neighborhoods.com

How does your team reward individual success?

Each manager has a keen eye not only for who is maintaining high levels of productivity, but also for who is willing to assist other members of the team who may be overwhelmed with tasks or a busy schedule. Outstanding work is almost always recognized via Cheers on TinyPulse, with frequent social functions, or even with a simple "thank you."

Neil

Neighborhood Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Our company culture always encourages cross-team collaboration. On any given day, I could be chatting with Sales about how our agents interact with the site or collaborating with a software engineer about how to develop the best performance indicators for our new service.

Frankie

Data Scientist
