An Insider's view of Quick Base

What's something quirky about your company?

Something quirky about Quick Base is for sure, Waffle Wednesday. Every Wednesday you can expect to see 20+ people gathered in the kitchen anxiously awaiting their hot, made-to-order waffle in the morning. This time allows for a relaxed morning and the opportunity to get to know all of the other waffle-lovers and new employees at QB!
