Checking the Kudos wall helps me keep in touch with what everyone else is working on, achieving, and having fun with! Everything about Kudos is people-centric – this naturally encourages you to rethink how you manage that balance if you weren’t previously lucky enough to work in this kind of environment
My experience here has been phenomenal. I've loved my time at Kudos so far and I would highly recommend that others take any opportunity they get to work here. I love coming into the office to see all my favourite co-workers and getting to know some new people. Also, the flexibility with hours makes it super easy to get my work done when and how I want.
There is a strong and unique culture here, – it is welcoming, friendly, supportive, and goal-oriented. I get to connect and engage with my team and other teams frequently. Sharing messages of appreciation and gratitude positively impacts my personal life. A huge benefit that takes place in the summer is Half Days on Fridays. Kudos is a remarkable and ambitious company with great people leading it: there is innovation and creativity in all areas, so be prepared to fully step in and be a part of it!
