What’s your company culture?

One of the fastest-growing public companies (Omniture) has their international headquarters across the street from our headquarters. Omniture is a great company that provides web analytics to some of the largest companies in the world. While they have many reasons to impress, I have taken particular notice of the terrific company culture that they provide to their employees.

Let me give you an example…

DisneyThis past week, they made a huge public announcement that the Walt Disney Internet Group (Disney, ABC, ESPN, etc.) has dropped their previous service provider to use Omniture’s web analytic tools. When the Omniture employees showed up to work the next day, the company had Disney music, Disney stuffed dolls, and Mickey & Minney walking around the office to celebrate! Every employee could take home a Disney doll (or two) in celebration of the big announcement.

I love to hear stories like that and hope that we can build a similar (hard-working, but fun) culture at FundingUniverse. The world of entrepreneurship can definitely be long and lonely… so it can only help to have some fun along the way.

I’d love to hear about some of the cool things that you are doing (or stories that you have heard) that promote a strong company culture.
