An Insider's view of Agero + Swoop

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

Agero allows me to have the work-life balance I need. The company understands and cares that employees have things they need to deal with outside work. Agero is the most flexible company I have ever worked at in accommodating the chaotic schedule I sometimes have to work; I arrange my life first and know it’s ok to make my work fit in around that.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

The Agero team has supported my career growth in two ways, by helping identify my strengths and creating a role that plays to those strengths. They value their employees and frequently expose them to new opportunities. They have created an increasingly unique environment with relatively high job security, fun work, and high career growth potential.
