The average age of Softheon employees is 25 years. “This can be attributed to our open and innovative culture being particularly attractive to younger workers, but also to our being located on the campus of Stony Brook University, one of the nation’s leading public research universities,” says Eugene Sayan. Softheon offers tuition reimbursement plans for employees who have worked with the company for at least a year and who wish to continue their education. Employees also can take advantage of flexible schedules. “We do not see work at Softheon as a nine-to-five job, and all are encouraged to stay until the job is done,” says Sayan. The company’s HR department has organized a “TGIF” committee, whose sole purpose is brainstorming and planning company events.
“Without passionate workers who truly care about the results of their efforts, no amount of strategizing and planning will be worth your time.”
