3 min read

Recently we had the chance to sit down with our Human Resources team and talk to them about the ins and outs of the department; what they love and what makes them want to pull their hair out. This is the first post in a series, so if you're not in HR check back soon to see if we've made one for your department. Our next few list style posts will include "You know you're in Sales Ops when..." and "You Know You're a Social Media Manager When..." Did we miss any on this list? Have ideas for our next post?
