If you’re interested in working in and creating great workplace culture, you’ve got to do a little homework. Use your Google superpowers and see if you can find any information that may inform your decisions to apply or proceed with any company. Make sure to consult the pervasive Glassdoor and LinkedIn for any information or hints that may push you towards action or rerouting your queries. Also, check out the company’s website and social media - is there any published content on the team experience you can explore? What other information can you dig up about the product, the brand, and what it stands for? All of this collected data will help you form opinions on what the company actually stands for, thus reflecting the qualities needed for success within that team culture.
Another option for larger companies is to connect with current employees at a particular company on LinkedIn. Send them a quick email asking how they enjoy working there. For smaller companies with fewer employees, you might ask the hiring manager if you can meet other people on the team before making a decision.
