You hear a lot about “company culture” nowadays, but at Automated Insights we practice what we preach. That’s why we’ve won the “Best Place to Work” honor four times.For a look at the values of Automated Insights, we have a set of 8 guidelines posted around our office that include “Stay Agile,” “Automate Everything,” and “Enjoy the Journey.”
The “Enjoy the Journey” value is something we truly encourage in our workplace. We believe employee happiness is the key to high quality work, a sense of pride in what we’re creating, and a more cohesive, positive experience for our customers.
Our barometer for a great company culture is the amount of laughter you hear in the office. We love working together-which is why we value attitude as much as aptitude in our employees. Having fun at work is a top priority and everyday occurrence at Automated Insights, and we intend to keep it that way!
So what do we do to “enjoy the journey” when our company not only meets our annual revenue and growth goals, but actually surpasses them by 3x?
At any other company, there might be some cupcakes in the kitchen and that’s about it for commemorating the milestone.
At Automated Insights, we celebrate shattering our annual growth and revenue goals by shooting our Chief Revenue Officer, Adam Smith, with a homemade burrito cannon.
Yep, you read that right. Homemade. Burrito. Cannon.
And, of course, we splurged for extra guac.

No word on what will happen when we crush our growth goals for 2017, but we’re optimistic it’ll be just as rewarding and entertaining!
