Formerly located in a custom built tech-facility in Rockton, IL, the new H.Q. sits "literally" on top of the Rock River in Beloit, WI. Although Walleteers were sad for the sudden relocation on April 8, 2011 (Fox Business live coverage), they have embraced the change and made the most of the relocation.
Apart from the physical structure, the new FatWallet still embodies that same unique workplace culture that keeps Walleteers at their best. Offices and work stations sport individual creativity as personalities blossomed with the change of environment. Lunches are still served fresh each day and the games, snack bars and leisure areas still serve as the office "water-cooler" where Walleteers chill and socialize. The address may have changed, but the people are still the same!
FatWallet as a company is shaped by strong fundamentals that illustrate the pillars of our culture. Our core purpose defines the reason we are in business: To serve the consumer community. It gives our company heart and it provides a clue as to why seemingly small incidents send the CEO into a tirade.
At FatWallet, we value integrity, commitment, passion, balance, change, respect and fun. These values in action keep us strong, focused, driven, human, alive, productive and amused - over time, no matter what.
“I don’t think there’s anything that’s absolutely, positively unique here at FatWallet except for the collection of people that work here,” states Founder Tim Storm. more
The Walleteers at FatWallet bring a diverse mix of talent and educational background that form the base for this unique culture. They bring a strong focus for passion and commitment to hard work and play. The workplace echoes a spirit of fun and games, with events like their annual kickball tournament for charity, pinball, foosball, shuffleboard, and monthly game days.
Other cultural touches include a life-sized purple cow representing the company’s values (Walleteers can earn the right to sign) and a casual snack-attack hangout we call the “fish bowl”, situated directly above the Rock River featuring a 360 degree view of beautiful downtown Beloit, Wisconsin.
