Project Everest Ventures Reviews
Reviews by Project Everest Ventures graduate employees
- For me the best part about working at Project Everest is the people - both the team in the office I interact with day-to-day, and our wider pool of leaders and consultants, trekkers and alumni that I get to be a part of. Everyone has been through similar experiences and has lived and breathed the value that we are actually showcasing to our customers and partners, and so the pride and passion towards what we do make me really love coming to work every day. I also love the work and mission that we have at Project Everest - enabling a billion people around the world through processes aimed at achieving sustainable and scalable outcomes is so much more valuable than just throwing money at an issue. Having spent time with customers of our service and products overseas, I have seen first hand how important solutions like this are in alleviating the big social issues the world currently faces.
- Everyone that works at Project Everest Ventures has an unwavering passion for what they do and it influences everything. This is not a 9-5 job for anyone, it is their life. Everyone is working for a purpose and for something greater than themselves in attempting to enable 1 billion people. Being surrounded by such passionate people enables you to strive for more and work harder. The office culture is extremely strong, where everyone looks out for one another where possible. You feel extremely welcome and despite pushing hard in all tasks, it never feels like work. Having a small core team, means everyone is more like family than colleagues. Working at an organisation where you want to do the hard yards is now something I will strive for in my career.
- The ability to constantly push myself in areas that are foreign to me and have a network of support that really fosters that growth. The passion and strength of each coworker are incredible and inspiring as well. The work itself is rewarding and there are multiple occasions throughout a month of which I can see my tasks having an impact on the bigger picture of the companies strategy.
- Whilst it's definitely not the "worst" thing, and not for me specifically, an aspect of working at Project Everest that definitely wouldn't work for everyone is that it's a lot harder to really "get" what we do unless you've experienced it yourself. Almost everyone in our team has started as a trekker on an internship with us, and/or undertaken our immersive leadership and business trainings, as well as having returned to lead at a range of levels overseas. Project Everest is great in recognising this though and ensures that new recruits get this exposure and immersion to our culture here, however it does make it hard to really understand what we do without any prior experience like this.
- Once you are in, it's incredibly hard to find the same satisfaction anywhere else. Working with Project Everest Ventures is highly addictive and you will try to add value in whatever possible. Having a small team does mean that a lot of responsibility is burdened on each person, making an unwavering passion critical to success.
- Being still in the early days of the company there are times in which a lot of pressure is put onto my department to deliver. This happens in each area and can cause a destructive mindset of pushing yourself to work as hard as possible without self-care. Although, this feeling takes place due to the sheer love that each employee has for the organisation rather than the stress the manager's place. Another negative has been that the main office is in Sydney and I have been working remotely since I began with them. This has led to problems with communication flow and feeling properly part of a 'team'.
