We do this by:

Helping companies become better places to work

Our Principles

This collection of quotes, laws, lessons, and inside jokes serve to remind us how we want to behave along the way to making our vision a reality.

  • Don’t be a ***k.
  • Spend less than you make.
  • Quality means value, not polish.
  • Work is important, but it’s not life or death
  • "Because that’s how we’ve done it” is never okay.
  • Something is wrong if you're not having fun.
  • Flexibility > Profit
  • Profit > Clout
  • Don’t vaz; just take a break
  • Lean into discomfort.
  • Don’t half-ass two things, whole-ass one thing.
  • Don’t get bitter, get better
  • Strong intentions, held loosely.
  • Get enough sleep.
  • Never use words when a meme will do.
  • Know what you’re bad at.
  • Focus on what you’re great at.
  • Self-care before work.
  • Procrastinating is not self-care.
  • If it’s not a “f**k yes” then it’s a “no.”
  • Just do the next right thing
  • Use data and intuition together; don’t overweight either
  • Try to help, regardless of if there’s anything in it for you
