An Insider's view of CrowdStrike

What's something quirky about your company?

Our mascot is a falcon so the SDR team puts falcon in front of activities - for example when we do team stretches when everyone needs to get up from their chair and take a break we call it Falcon Stretch

How does the company support your career growth?

CrowdStrike does an awesome job at promoting from within. I started as an SDR a little of a year ago and am now an SDR Manager! When departments are looking for new hires the SDR org is the first place they look for internal promotions.
