Joshua’s Answer

If you plan on seeking a career in government or law enforcement is that you are and are not alone in the job. The government is a workforce that is in a solitary environment. You are working as a team to get the mission done but you need to look out for yourself to make sure you advance. No one will hold your hand and coddle you along the way. If you pursue either career do not be afraid to ask questions but also give it 100% and maintain a work-life balance. Meaning to balance work and home life so they do not interfere with each other. The culture can be amazing at times and horrible at other times. You will get that with any job, I would recommend seeking out people to conduct informal information interviews. These are great as you can get an informal way of what a job is really like. You will get a lot of No's and the key point of this is informal do not record or try to say this person said this, remember it is their opinion. That would be my suggestion. Every job will have it's ups and downs and remember that there is no job that is 100% of the time awesome. Just continue to keep an open mind on everything and the moment you have a closed mind your work culture will close as well.

Joshua recommends the following next steps:

Request informal job information with different job fields.

Hello!

I am a volunteer EMT so I have a bit of a different experience than others on this platform. I absolutely love my job regardless. My squad is comprised of people who genuinely want to make the better place and do not mind not getting paid for it. Many of my crew mates also work in paid EMS and love both sides. The culture is nothing like I have ever experienced before. They are the most fun-loving people who will always put down everything to help. We can be goofy in the station and play games, then drop everything for a call. The teamwork is different than normal, especially when there is an emergent call like a cardiac arrest. Everyone adapts to their role seamlessly and does not try to take over. I have never felt closer to my coworkers. I encourage you to look into it, even if you do not think it fits you, because you might be surprised.

Ana Yunuen’s Answer

I'm proud of my company culture, which is primarily defined by the "HP Way" that funders Hewlett and Packard did. Open doors, respect, flexibility, motivation to develop ourselves, growth mindset, VIA process for our feedback be heard, support from anyone primarily from your manager and team, sustainability, agility and incentives for our career development and for helping our communities are the key factors that I live in my daily work. I've been at HP Inc for 13 years and I keep loving my company culture even more every day =D
I've reported to many managers at HP, everyone has a different leadership style (some more micromanagement than others where I've learned that it depends on the circumstance you are or you need, for example, a kid or 1st day employee would need a more direct style, while an expert on their job only needs support and delegation), but all of them have in common that have practice same HPway which is very respectful and openness to our feedback and way to be. There are mechanisms to always raise the hand in case we have any culture concerns =D
Hope this is helpful to answer your question, anyway, I think that before applying to a new job, this is a key aspect to review on the company you're applying for to feel comfortable and exploit all your potential to grow =D
