Leadership

Building a company, especially one creating alternative, never-before-traveled pathways to success is tough, stressful, exciting, fulfilling, grueling, demanding, fun, disappointing, and sometimes even hilarious. Anyone who only lists “fun and exciting” on a startup job description is being disingenuous.

Los Angeles Business Journal

Our Soul

Work-life balance, all while having fun, keeps us going

We Get Away Once A Year

We Get Away Once A Year

Every year, our Team leaves the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles for a work retreat. Not only is it an opportunity to travel and have some fun, but it enables us to take a step back, think about our business, and identify ways we can continue enhancing our service to our clients. Denver, Colorado, San Francisco, California, and Park City, Utah have all hosted Bambee; where to next?!

Our Birthday Calls For Celebration

Our Birthday Calls For Celebration

Birthday celebrations at the workplace aren’t unique, but Bambee Birthdays are! Our incredible culture and great team dynamics result in genuine, authentic birthday feels. We’re not going to win any singing awards, but our celebrations hit the right note.

We Call The Bradbury Building Home – Image

We Call The Bradbury Building Home

Every business aspires to reach icon-status. We’re no different, and we believe it starts at home. So we found an iconic home - The Bradbury Building is a national historic landmark located in Downtown Los Angeles and a member of the National Register of Historic Places. Movies and music videos have been filmed here, thousands of photos have been taken here, and best-in-class HR advice is given here.

Group Events Bring Us Closer – Image

Group Events Bring Us Closer

We love team dinners and happy hours as much as the next company, but it’s hitting the lanes at the local bowling alley that really gets us going. Friendly competition doesn’t hurt anybody, and for us, it’s an opportunity to bring our company closer together. And honestly, a place where people get a free pass to trash-talk the CEO.

Team Dinners Fill Our Bellies (And Hearts) – Image

Team Dinners Fill Our Bellies (And Hearts)

There’s many benefits about living and working in Los Angeles: the weather, the scenery, the fours days a year when there’s no traffic. One of our favorite things, however, is the food. World-renowned for the available cuisine, our team loves to take advantage by grabbing a bite to eat after a full day of work.

We Are Friends Outside The Office – Image

We Are Friends Outside The Office

It’s a fact - when you like someone, it’s easier to work with them. Fortunately, we all like each other (for now). And even though it’s fortunate, it’s not surprising. That’s what happens when you hire great professionals and even better people. Our CEO or someone from our Executive Team meets every single person who interviews at the company; culture is at the core of our business.

Our Values

We seriously believe how you live impacts how you work

New Experiences Enrich Your Life – Image

New Experiences Enrich Your Life

The business plan for this company was built on a beach in Thailand and our CEO believes in the value of life experiences...so we pay our employees to travel! Bambee offers a travel subsidy for people to have new, enriching, life experiences. This isn’t intended for people to buy a plane ticket to fly home (although that’s important; make sure you call your parents this week!). This is intended to inspire people to identify experiences they want in their life, but haven’t had before. We want you to have it.

Staying Fit Keeps You Focused – Image

Staying Fit Keeps You Focused

Monthly gym reimbursements? Of course we do that. But we also offer an equipment budget! Been eyeing a new mountain bike? Want to get into snowboarding? Need a new yoga mat? Don’t let cost deter you - we’ll help you with that.

Culture Breeds Perspective – Image

Culture Breeds Perspective

Los Angeles: One of the beacons of arts and culture on this planet. Sometimes we get caught up in the day-to-day of life, but we need to be reminded that these experiences are right at our fingertips. Bambee reminds you with a quarterly reimbursement to attend a concert, comedy show, museum, etc.

Knowledge Is Power – Image

Knowledge Is Power

  1. Onward: How Starbucks Fought for Its Life Without Losing Its Soul, by Howard Schultz and Joanne Gordon
  2. The Hard Thing About Hard Things, by Ben Horowitz
  3. Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, by Nell Scovell and Sheryl Sandberg
  4. Play Bigger: How Pirates, Dreamers, and Innovators Create and Dominate Markets, by Al Ramadan, Christopher Lochhead, Dave Peterson, and Kevin Maney
  5. The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho
  6. Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead, by Brené Brown
These are just six of the titles in our founder’s reading list. Reading is unfortunately becoming a lost art. Hopefully we can help delay that ever so slightly. Knowledge is power, so Bambee will pay for a subscription for the life-informing content that you are hopefully searching for.

We want our product to be lightweight and robust
