Empowering employees:

We have a very transparent culture, with an open-door policy where employees can approach HR or the leadership team at any time.

We recognize folks at our Company All Hands, through email, and also at team meetings and events.  Externally, folks receive recognition when they write a blog and get publically mentioned or it is re-tweeted to our Cohesity site.

We thrive on a transparent culture, with minimal leadership levels where folks wear multiple hats and have the ability to learn new skills and operate cross-functionally.

Ensuring well-being:

We offer highly competitive benefits plans that are fully paid for by the company.  We offer weekly massages and company sponsored work out classes 3 days a week.  We also do health and wellness lunch and learns, as well as provide annual bi0-metrics screenings and flu shots.

Longevity:

Most engineering employees have been at Cohesity for at least 2-3 years.  The majority of the leadership team has been at the company for 18 months.

Closing company statements: We have a work-hard, play-hard culture, where folks genuinely enjoy interacting with each other and drive an innovative, fast pace, and collaborative environment, where folks actually enjoy coming to work!
