An Insider's view of SessionM

What’s the vibe like in the office?

One of the things I am always impressed by when I walk into our offices is how many concurrent conversations and discussions are taking place - near peoples' desks, in the kitchen, on the various couches etc. There is a true sense of collaboration and "problem-solving mode" at all times. It's very energizing and highly motivating!
