Employee Spotlight: Mei Chen

If you could invent a gadget what will it be and why?

A gadget that I can put on myself and help me tele-transport in an instant!  I love travelling but getting old – so the whole idea of going through security – getting on a plane – waiting in lines – taking a cab – waiting, waiting and more waiting… such a waste of time and energy!

What's the kindest act you have ever seen done (either to/by you or another)?

Everyone knows I'm a sucker for dogs… so I saw this video a few weeks ago… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_4ZgY5VOa4.  Warning: not for the faint hearted.

If you were to start a book club, what book(s) would you recommend?  Why/What's it about?I

don't have a specific book that I would recommend, but I love reading (or listening - as I've started to lately during my commute) books about people's experiences, growing up in different cultures, narratives, etc… My last 2 books: Tina Fey's Bossypants and Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir.

What wakes you up in the morning or what motivates you to come to work every day?

Definitely my alarm clock – and it tries really hard to wake me up. To be honest, TeleSign is the best place I've EVER worked for.  The job is challenging – but in a great way.  I love that this is a small enough company that you can get your hands dirty and learn so much.  I love that my input makes a difference in the company.  I love that my opinions are heard.  I love that if I don't know something – someone is always there to help out.  I love that I can walk up to any C management and have a chat.  I love that my colleagues are weird but awesome at the same time.  And last but not least – I love that I get to go into a meeting while petting one of the visitor dogs on my lap.  All of this is what motivates me to be here every day.

If you were a superhero, which one would you be and why? Or better yet, what special super powers would you possess?

I think I would like to have super speed, or the ability to continue doing things while I sleep.  That way I can get more things done in a day.  Can I also have the ability to add more hours to a day?  Oh, oh, oh! And I would love to be able to understand what animals are saying/thinking.  I don't know how that would help anyone, but I think that would still be pretty awesome.
