Drawbridge is a small company working to accomplish a huge task, says Kamakshi Sivaramakrishnan, which is why everyone has an important role to play. But even though hard work is a part of the job, Sivaramakrishnan says Drawbridge wants its employees to lead balanced lives. The company offers two paid lunch delivery services, an onsite café and a snack supply. To help employees relieve stress, Drawbridge built a recreation room in the office equipped with pingpong, comfortable seating, a foosball table and beer on tap. Sivaramakrishnan says Drawbridge understands that employees work in different ways, so it invested in a hammock, beanbag chairs, armchairs and standing desk options.
“Drawbridge boasts a very ethnically diverse workforce, and we like it that way. We love to celebrate our multicultural team throughout the year. In October, we celebrate Diwali. The entire company will dress in authentic Indian garb, enjoy samosas, paint henna, and honor the light. Come Halloween, the company throws down for an epic battle of the costumes.”
