An Insider's view of BitSight Technologies

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

"My Days" are company wide days where we're encouraged to not work, and instead simply enjoy our day in whatever manner we choose; I didn't know this existed in a flourishing company and it's refreshing to work for a company that not only cares about your professional well being, but also your personal
