"A lot of out-of-the-box thinking and collaboration across a multitude of teams is required."
I am someone who enjoys new things, I get restless with repetitive tasks and need a continual challenge. I get that here at IM Flash. Problems and trouble shooting—this is what we do almost on a daily basis because we've never faced so many of these issues before so we're not entirely sure how to fix it. It requires a lot of out-of-the-box thinking and collaboration across a multitude of teams.
Ability to influence
The people here really care about what we do and how you're doing as a valued team member. Everything we do ties into our company core values and everyone is treated with a high level of dignity and respect. Compared to previous work experiences I've had, I've never been able to address the CEOs as easily as I can here, have a Fab manager who walks around and asks people how we can be better. Leadership wants the company to always be on the cutting edge and be successful and they know that we are the ones to make it happen. I really enjoy coming into work every day because of that fact.
In looking back at my college experience, I realized I wished I had known more specifically on what to say or ask companies when they came recruiting. It was one of the reasons why I got involved in our intern and college recruiting programs, to help open college students eyes so they understand it's not a scary world beyond college and they are learning the right skills to help make contributions to become great leaders. I try to encourage them to ask the right questions to make them more comfortable in their career decisions. I even started teaching an Intro to Electrical & Computer Engineering class at BYU to connect to students even more.
Recognition at work
Our recognition system, rCubed, is a fantastic way to recognize people at work who embody and exemplify one of our core values. It also helps build our team, develop trust and respect between co-workers. It's a great way to celebrate contributions and successes at IM Flash!
