Best Place I Will Likely Ever Work
Senior Human Resource Business Partner (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – April 3, 2019
I don't know how to encapsulate ten years into just a few paragraphs and worry this will come across as some sort of paid advertisement. I was hired at Xenium in 2007 as a near entry-level HR support team member working directly for now President Anne Donnovan, an amazingly compassionate, creative and approachable leader. From my first day I was immediately struck by the open, supportive and constantly improving drive present in Xenium's culture. We were encouraged to learn everything we could from teammates and rewarded with consistent praise and promotions that were coupled with market-appropriate compensation increases. I was not only trusted but pushed to try new things, given every bit of support to be successful and empowered to lead myself, my clients and others. I was absolutely heartbroken when my family relocated to the Midwest in 2017 because I suspect I will never find a leadership group, team and/or clients that helped me grow as much as Xenium's did. Every day was a new challenge and that did get exhausting at times but there was always a team ready to support me and my clients in working through tough HR challenges. Taking the time for hands-on support of each of our clients often meant late nights personally, but I was always appreciated and rewarded both financially and emotionally for all of my hard work. I cannot say enough about my Xenium family. If you have an opportunity to work here, take it.
