Welcome to I Love My Job, the series where we hear from real women who really love their jobs. In this edition, we sat down with Brandy Brooks, a Unit Manager at Achieve from Texas. Achieve is a leading digital personal finance company built to help everyday people get on a path to a better financial future. Achieve does what traditional banks don’t — they put people first! And this mentality certainly extends to their own employees, too. 

For example, Achieve “supports everything about our advancement and goals,” Brooks tells us. “A really good thing about this company is when you let them know what you want to succeed in, they absolutely help you get to where you need to be. They provide a variety of career development paths so you can move up and advance your career quickly.”

Achieve aims to empower women to grow their careers at all levels of the organization with offerings like:

  • Succession planning and developmental programs to identify, mentor, and leverage their talented women team members. 

  • Five different employee resource groups (ERGs), including Women in Leadership and Women in Technology.

  • A Women in Leadership mentor program and key career rotations.

  • External development programs like Mentoring Monday, SheLeads, and the Eller High Impact Leadership Program.

As Brooks says, “this is a really great company to work for and anyone who hasn't heard about us, should get to know us!” 

Check out the video below to learn more about why Brooks loves working at Achieve. We also provide lightly edited highlights from the video discussion in the following article:

A project that I'm currently working on is mentoring future leaders. It’s really fulfilling to me to see the career path of our future employees. And we have so many promotions from within—people love that. Getting to be a part of this is very exciting for me.

How would you describe the culture at Achieve?

Rewarding and very transparent.

My favorite thing about working here at Achieve is the collaboration that we have as a company. Everyone here works together so well from the bottom to the top. We have a common goal, which is to change the lives of all of our clients every single day.

What advice do you have for women looking for jobs at Achieve?
