Pass it on.

When your work and life excite you, it’s hard to keep it to yourself. Our blog is just part of a larger discussion we’re having on Twitter, Facebook, and in communities all over the web.

Let’s talk about teammates. Think about the best people you’ve ever worked with. What makes them the cream of the crop to you? How can we be the best people our teammates have ever worked with? For me, the general answer is impact.

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re growing! We’ve got several open positions right now, and we already have a new crop of Pixonauts roaming our office, learning the ropes. With all the exciting change happening around here, lately I can’t help but think about the days when I was brand-new to Pixo. It really is a special place to work, and my colleagues were exceptionally helpful and friendly.

The IT consulting field has a longtime reputation for over-promising and under-delivering. When I worked at Andersen Consulting (now Accenture) in the early ’90s, I was on a project that delivered two years late. When I worked at Solo Cup company (now Dart), I watched as a consulting company repeatedly extended our go-live, finally launching our new Customer Management System 21 months late.

Whether you’re working internally or with clients, using words to describe a visual concept can only take you so far. Saying “picture this” without an actual picture may leave members of a team seeing and thinking different things. And when we’re not on the same page, we spend time creating the wrong thing (and then correcting it).

  Our open office is fraught with distractions… and friendship. My desk at Pixo is covered in a pile of UX and content strategy books, a mug of Papermate Flair pens, art by Zoe Si, a phone that never rings, and a small vase of water (the home of three fuzzy marimo, all named Gary). In eight minutes and forty-three seconds, I’ll allow myself to get up and walk around the room, or scavenge the Pixo Cafe for a mid-afternoon snack.

A few months ago, a local company came to Pixo, blindsided with a web accessibility lawsuit. The settlement claimed “substantial access barriers” on their website which made it “impossible for our clients and similarly situated stakeholders to access the site’s privacy-related information and legal terms and conditions, and to exercise privacy and legal choices available to persons who enjoy full access to the website. ” Not only did the settlement ask for “injunctive relief, and reasonable attorney’s fee and costs,” they also requested extensive remedial measures to the company’s website and web practices, including assessment, training, user-testing, monitoring, and other policy and programming measures.
