Carousel30’s open office allows for easy communication among its diverse team. Though employees are hired for their unique expertise, Carousel30 encourages them to learn and share experiences with each other, including interns and junior staff. What’s more, team members push each other to reach their full potential. “Good enough is a cop out. Each team member expects a lot from one another, but they are also always willing to pitch in to help,” says Greg Kihlström. Volunteering is another important part of Carousel30’s culture. Together, staff members have cleaned up trash on the National Mall, and helped with environmental outreach for The Nature Conservancy.
“In the last year, we’ve gone to a Nationals game and to a painting studio where we each picked one of the company’s values to illustrate in a painting.”
