IT’S ALL ABOUT OUR PEOPLE
We believe that an organization’s success is about so much more than hard work. It’s about cultivating a compelling culture. It’s about investing in people. It’s about embracing the family spirit. At Hughes Marino, we’re one big family, working together and motivating each other towards our shared and individual goals. We hope that the first thing you notice when you step foot through our front doors is the welcoming and supportive environment that we’ve worked so hard to create.
We invite you to take a glimpse into a little slice of life at Hughes Marino, full of quirky traditions, fun sayings and an endless pursuit to always enjoy the journey.
What We're All About
Many years ago when we became Hughes Marino, our original team of 14 put their heads together to craft 10 core values, which have been, and continue to be, the driving force behind our company culture and every decision that we make. Our core values are memorized, discussed during meetings and presentations, pinned to our bulletin boards, framed on our desks, and worn proudly on a few of our favorite HM T-shirts. We’re a group of people who are dedicated to living and working each and every day according to our values.
We didn’t build our company culture overnight. It’s been years in the making and we’re constantly reinvigorating and protecting what we’ve created. We can’t just talk about it; we have to be about it. Here are a few of the ways that we keep our culture alive and well.
Each year, our company retreats together to a beautiful location for 48 hours of team-building, motivational speakers, brainstorming and most importantly, time together.
Extra Fun Fridays
We have our fair share of fun every day, but Friday afternoons are often reserved for chocolate malt making, shuffleboard playing and go-kart racing …that is, when we don’t close the office a few hours early to get a head start on the weekend!
It doesn’t go unnoticed when a teammate does something wow-worthy (and that happens often around here!) Teammates have a chance to recognize each other with WOW cards, which reward their outstanding work with lots of kudos and a little extra love in their paycheck.
Our team reserves one evening each summer to get together with our families and friends for a ball game at Petco Park or Angel Stadium in addition to other events throughout the year.
As a company and as individuals we are committed to giving back to the community. We collectively log hundreds of hours and tens of thousands of dollars in charitable donations each year.Read More
Fun and Games
A little friendly competition never hurt, right? Between our monthly shuffleboard and billiard tournaments, vintage arcade games, and annual talent contests, there is plenty to do to keep the good times rolling!
Each member of the Hughes Marino team lives and breathes these values every day. They are the guiding principles at the heart of our business, and they are what makes our company great.Read More
We are committed to creating spaces that are cozy and welcoming. With a fully stocked kitchen, a game room, works of art and plenty of comfy couches to lounge in, our team members feel right at home!Read More
“Since joining this team two years ago, I’ve felt nothing but supported and encouraged. I’ve had enough experience working for other companies to know that Hughes Marino’s culture is exceptional and unique. I can honestly say that every person I work with is a friend, and that alone is enough to make me excited about coming to work every day. But, on top of that, I’m constantly amazed by the way the leaders of this company care about the good of me as an individual and our HM family as a whole. I am incredibly proud and honored to be part of something so special. Hughes Marino is truly one of a kind.”
