What do you do at Cydcor?

I’m an attorney in Cydcor’s Legal Department, and we provide legal guidance to Cydcor on a broad range of issues that may affect our clients, our internal operations, and/or our independent sales subcontractors. On any given day, I might work with team members on a complex client agreement, update our compliance procedures in accordance with new laws, provide answers about our contractual obligations, dabble in employment law, delve into the world of IT and cloud apps, or finalize a significant vendor contract to improve a core function. I also assist other departments with finding streamlined solutions/processes for our internal policies, as well as handle legal emergencies that arise from the sales field. It never gets boring here!

What makes Cydcor Special?

As with any results-oriented company, Cydcor is focused on surpassing company goals, but its dedication to improving the quality of life for all team members makes Cydcor unique. There is always an emphasis on development. For example, Cydcor is constantly providing classes and reading materials to help employees with their professional milestones at all levels in their careers, and the company has emphasized through group trainings and interactive workshops how team members can address and reduce bias in the workplace. Other perks such as frequent team building events (including remote scavenger hunts!), book clubs, and group workouts all make this place special.

How has working at Cydcor helped you grow?

Working at Cydcor has given me so much hands-on experience with a variety of both legal and business matters, and, as an attorney, I find that the work here is exciting and rewarding. Because Cydcor has a unique business model, there is always something new that pops up. You'll never get boxed into one niche and will constantly be faced with a wide range of matters in more than one area of law every day. On top of that, when there are emergencies, you have to be able to think on your feet!

What is your favorite part of working at Cydcor?

Hands down, my favorite part of working here is collaborating with other team members when solving unique problems. It’s admirable to see teams pull together on complex/novel issues and support each other in the process. I’ve made some great friendships here at Cydcor due to its friendly culture, and I love learning new perspectives or considerations about the business from other points of view. As you can imagine, understanding the big picture is critical in my position as Counsel!
