An Insider's view of Ensono

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I find the culture to be very open and collaborative. One can be on a call with a customer and ask your technical resource across from you a specific question or run into our CEO in the hallway while grabbing a cup of coffee. We allow feedback to be given and changes to be heard. Leadership constantly finds ways to make it an exciting workplace
