Great Places to Work

Feb 07, 2019 | by Rich Lineback, Director of Business Development, Professional Services | Tags: Company Culture

It’s the time of year when lists of Best Places to Work to come out and, for the sixth straight year, Innovative Software Engineering has been named as one of the Top Workplaces in Iowa by the Des Moines Register.  While I’ve only been at ISE for a short time, I know as a past client of the company that it was a great place to work long before it appeared on this list.  And I am quite confident that it will remain a great place to work long after we’ve disappeared from any list.

So what makes a company a great place to work?


Different Perspectives on Leadership

As engineers, we love solving problems.  Anyone who has gotten deep in code knows ‘the zone’- that area where you are so deeply involved in a problem the email letting you know there is free pizza in the break room doesn’t come close to pulling you out of your seat.  Seeing your code work successfully and making things happen fires off an endorphin rush that attending a planning meeting doesn’t match.  If you perform your engineering duties at a high enough level, chances are you will be viewed as a go-to person on key matters and might even start mentoring others.  Inevitably, your employer looks at you and brings up that magical word some careers careen towards – Leadership.
