An Insider's view of Honest Buildings

What are some social events your company does?

The Product Development team recently went on a NYC-themed scavenger hunt in Lower Manhattan. It was a really fun way to bond with my teammates over some friendly competition. Afterwards, we met up for food and drinks and to congratulate the winning team — which unfortunately I was not on! We also hold regular game nights & quarterly offsites!

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

After being a manager for a while, Honest Buildings gave me the ability to build out a department and team from scratch. I learned a ton about the different aspects of building a company and was supported at all times. As I continue moving forward, this skill set and experience will be a great foundation for my career.

Jeb

Business Development Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Every single person in Honest Buildings contributes to creating our company goals. We have a huge opportunity to put into place things that haven’t been created yet. If someone sees an opportunity and they want to work to fill that gap, we give them all the resources they need to help grow the company (and themselves) as much as possible.

Crystal

Chief Brand and Performance Officer

How does the company support your career growth?

The mentorship I’ve gained at Honest Buildings has championed me to speak up for what I want out of my career and the directions I want to go. HB has taught me how to advocate for myself, given me the courage needed to openly pitch ideas, interests and directions, and given me an environment where I feel supported if I chose to explore them.
