How do I ask questions...
about benefits? First, check our Employee Benefits Summary. If you can't find the answer there, send a note in the #benefits-questions Slack channel.
about how our product works? Ask any product related questions in Slack in the #product-questions channel.
about your role-specific onboarding? Your team lead should be on top of this already! If any questions come up though don't hesitate to ask anyone on your team and they should be able to help or loop in someone who can. You can also check out the Team Onboarding Card for your role!
about general onboarding? Shoot a Slack message over to Statler or Waldorf (@statler and @waldorf).
