An Insider's view of Criteria Corp

What's something quirky about your company?

Dogs! Our office is dog-friendly; on any given day you can walk by 6-7 desks and say hello to cute friends. I have a pup myself and it's wonderful to be able to bring him into work with me, knowing he’s not home alone all day. It creates a great work environment, and after a long call there’s nothing more stress relieving than to cuddle with a pup.


Senior Sales Executive

What does your typical day look like?

Come in at 6:30am (don't worry, not everyone starts this early, I work with the East Coast) and respond to any emails and free trials that came in from the day before. Although Criteria has cold brew on tap, I enjoy my walks to a local coffee shop. For the rest of the day I’m either speaking/emailing clients or working on developing the sales team.


Sales Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

As a Customer Success Manager, we do pretty much anything and everything for our clients, so there is always a good amount of work to be done. In order to be successful on our team, you have to be a diligent, committed worker, willing to go above and beyond on a consistent basis.


Mid-Market Customer Success Manager

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

I love the work flexibility Criteria offers. Everyone in the team is extremely accommodating to each other’s needs and routine. Being a working mother, it has immensely helped me maintain a healthy work-life balance.
