An Insider's view of SIMON

What are some social events your company does?

We’ve focused on keeping the company connected during these times, and it’s been great to continue to connect with coworkers we wouldn’t otherwise see. Whether it’s virtual tastings, cooking classes, or our upcoming holiday party, I’m thankful to work for a company that cares so much about its employees!

Autumn

What does your typical day look like?

We pride ourselves on the fluidity and evolving nature of pivoting on a swivel to focus on the pressing priorities of that minute, day, or week. Being surrounded by driven teammates with equal intellectual curiosity creates an environment that pushes us to pursue the work we are passionate about while cohesively striving towards goals as a team!

Olivia

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

SIMON is my first job following graduation from my master’s, and during my two years, I grew from junior to senior level and am now working on advanced projects. I learn new things every day with plenty of opportunities to cross-collaborate and integrate with clients. Join us and you too will grow at a pace you cannot imagine!

Stacey

Senior Quantitative Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Creativity is essential–it helps us find innovative ways to leverage new technologies to meet our clients’ needs. I’m always available to act as sounding board for ideas and feedback, encourage cross-team collaboration, empower decision making creating a culture where we learn from mistakes rather than be discouraged, and set the right example.
