Our Advantage is Our People

Our literal office picnic
Office Picnic

It’s been difficult finding nice, sunny days this summer. Unlike last year when we had a wonderful picnic at Kanawha State Forest under sunny skies, this year the threat of rain has been hanging around every weekend. So rather than risk having our company picnic ruined we tried something new. We literally had an office picnic in the office!

Cody Clay, from running plays to running code
Cody Clay

At 6 foot, 5 inches tall, Cody Clay is a big guy. When you see him, you can tell right away that he’s the kind of guy that fits right in on a football field. You wouldn’t picture him fitting in with the horned rimmed glasses worn by the computer nerds of 90’s sitcoms. Nor would you associate him with the lumberjack beards and gauged ears of the modern Silicon Valley hipster. But the truth is, he has more in common with them than he does with his fellow jocks on the gridiron.

It was a bright, sunny day. The creek was running cool, and the breeze was refreshing. In the air hung the smell of hot dogs and freshly barbecued pulled pork. Welcome to the first official Advantage Technology Company Picnic!

Hey, even IT professionals need to unplug from time to time. And what better place than Kanawha State Forest?

We had the sounds of children laughing and splashing and some classic rock on the stereo. All of those amazing homemade dishes we brought. It was wonderful!
