    Flex time off / unlimited PTO allows me to spend less time focusing on what hours I'm working and more on making sure I am producing quality outputs in a way that works for me.
    Employees are encouraged to be engaged and form alliances - we have a People of Color, Womxn's & Pride ERG.
    There is a lot of emphasis placed on making sure our culture truly lives up to the brand promise. Also our company-wide communication forums, such as #CarbonTalks and Carbon Connect, help employees feel included and informed.
