Of course, tech companies can be a dime a dozen, and when you’re uber-talented, your choices are limitless. What made Penrod stand out above the rest?
Both Beth and Laura agree it was the opportunities. “Starting as an intern, I was able to observe every possible career path available, which was helpful for focusing on the skills I need for the career I want,” says Laura.
“I’m learning all the time,” notes Beth. “Plus, at Penrod, it’s exciting to make new connections. I’m impacting clients in a positive, profound way, which is really cool.”
As avid athletes, it’s no surprise that the challenging, fast-paced environment also appeals to Beth and Laura. “I’ve ran four marathons,” explains Laura. “The Bermuda Triangle Challenge was the most exciting! It was a 1-mile race on Friday, 10K on Saturday, and a marathon on Sunday.”
Beth is also an avid runner-cyclist, and while you might not see her biking through the office, you may hear her hum (or belt out) one of her favorite tunes to pep up the office. “I once sang the National Anthem at a monster truck rally in front of thousands of people,” she laughs. “I love to sing. My family is like the Von Trapps from ‘Sound of Music.’”
From the occasional song, to building client solutions and brainstorming new innovations, Penrod’s office is filled with energy. But make no mistake, our team is very focused. When asked what is takes to be successful at Penrod, both Beth and Laura mentioned some of their standout qualities.
