To ensure our recipe is just right, we sat down with some of our teammates to truly understand what being a member of the Cherwell family means to them, and what parts of recipe are necessary for cultivating the Cherwell culture.

1. A Dash of Good People

“When you spend half your waking hours on the job, it’s that much more important to be surrounded by people you respect, admire, and draw positive energy from—and when I power down my computer at the end of the day, all that goodness flows into the other areas of my life.” – Debra Brandt, Marketing Director.

“My feeling is that it all comes down to the fact that virtually every individual in this company cares solely about making a better product. From Sam, our new CEO, to Steve Rodda, our Chief Product Officer, to engineering, QA, training, support, documentation—the list goes on—that’s ultimately what everyone here cares most about. We all know there is a lot of room for improvement, but every person at Cherwell is working to improve our products every day of the week.” – Chris  Paddock, UI/UX Director.

“I like working at Cherwell because I believe in the company and the product but mostly because of the wonderful people that I am lucky to work alongside and learn from every day. My manager is supportive, encouraging, and allows me the autonomy to be creative. At Cherwell, my voice is truly heard.” – Bernadette Guthrie, Proposal Writer.

 “My favorite thing about the Cherwell culture is the people. I am fortunate to be surrounded by smart, talented people who provide a great work environment and unlimited learning opportunities.” – Jessica Bell, Software QA Manager.


2. Two Tablespoons of Spirit

“Cherwell culture means having the freedom to be yourself, and having the space to bring your whole self to the organization. I’m responsible for ensuring that our global Cherwell events take into account the values and experiences we’re creating for such diverse groups of people so that they feel welcome and know that they are an important part of our community.” – Ida Pennymon, Senior Manager of Global Events.

“What I love is the entrepreneurial spirit and meritocracy that gives me the platform to be successful and develop my sales career at Cherwell.” – Amit Chawla, Account Executive.  

“I work to cultivate a positive culture here at Cherwell with humor. Humor creates an upbeat atmosphere that encourages interaction, brainstorming of new ideas, and a fun environment…which is especially helpful since we’re spending a majority of our waking hours at work!” – Sanket Shah, Corporate Counsel.

 

3. A Cup of Work Remote Options

 “I appreciate Cherwell leading the way in not only allowing, but encouraging, employees to work remotely. As I create Cherwell materials each day from Montana and communicate with my teammates, I trust everyone I work with knows that although I’m not seeing you face-to-face, you are certainly much more than simply a name at the top of an email...we are a team!” – Benton Walker, Creative Director.

“My favorite Cherwell perk is the flexibility to work from home, come in late, or leave early when necessary. This trust in my work ethic makes me want to work harder and longer so I don’t disappoint those who put their trust in me.” – Stephanie Santos, Customer Experience Manager.

 4. A Pinch of Fun Office Environments

 “We spend so much time at the office, so it’s vital to me to really make the office a happy place so everyone enjoys coming to the work. For example, I love bringing in lunch on occasion because everyone deserves to be recognized for all the hard work they are doing for Cherwell. It helps create positive attitudes.” – Kelly Webster, Senior Executive Assistant.

 

“As a bonus—the free drinks and snacks that we have in the office are very helpful when you have a long or stressful day!” – Joseph Barzizza, Global Payroll Manager.

 

 

Women in Tech Sales Team Spotlight

“With digital transformation on the horizon for many organizations and customer service as a critical component, technology organizations must be able to address the needs of their diverse end customers and employees.” –Christine Schultz, Account Executive at Cherwell.

When it comes to an organization, the success of the company relies heavily on the diversity of thought and unique experiences teammates bring to the table. At Cherwell software, that’s no different. We sat down with two of our account executives, Lisa Ingalls-Smith and Christine Schultz, to talk about their experience on the sales team, and what being a woman in technology means to them.

What do you like most about your role at Cherwell? 

“Overall, I would say that the culture seems to be very inclusive and open. From the top of the management down, everyone is hands on deck to make the company a better place and everyone’s excited about looking towards the future and growing the company.” –Lisa

“I’m proud to represent a company with a primary focus on the customer and their success. After many years in sales, I appreciate and find our customer-first culture refreshing.” –Christine

What’s your favorite part about working on the Cherwell Sales team?  

“I enjoy the challenge the sales role brings. I love nurturing customers to achieve success from the point of their initial interest as perspective customers through gaining continual and enhanced value with our solutions over time.”—Christine

“I love the work-life balance. When family takes priority, you can accommodate and control your schedule to fit around the craziness of life.” –Lisa
 

What made you go into sales?  

“The opportunity to provide value to organizations through technology. Working with people to understand their organizations’ challenges/needs and crafting the right solution to best solve problems. I know of no other role that offers the level of satisfaction and rewards of achievement that the sales role does.” – Christine
 
 “Sales was the first opportunity that came my way that fit my experience level and affords the flexibility I was seeking. Also, I love the people. I don’t have a problem going up and talking to anyone. If I can go in and solve problems when out in the field, that’s an incredibly rewarding thing.” – Lisa

What role do you think the value of diversity plays in tech? 

“I think that the individual contributions are key—having a diverse group people provides a lot of ideas and opinions. Having a monologist team means you don’t see things outside of the box. When you look at straight-up problem-solving, having a couple different ideas and experiences levels allow you to address a problem in a more productive way.” Lisa

“Since technology is such a fast-paced and ever-changing area, it is critical to have a variety of inputs, perspectives. and ideas. With digital transformation on the horizon for many organizations and customer service as a critical component, technology organizations must be able to address the needs of their diverse end customers and employees as well.” –Christine
