You definitely qualify as a tech star when you have an Emmy to show for your work. Egan is a member of the Time Warner Cable team that received a Technical Engineering Emmy for VOD Dynamic Ad Insertion this year. She also helped launch the first IP-based ad insertion for iPads and Android-based devices, with TWC Media the first company to offer advertising on these connected gadgets. Success in the workplace for her comes from “creating an environment [in which] employees are constantly learning, collaborating and innovating.”
What’s your favorite part of your job?
It is the smart, innovative and fun people that work at Time Warner Cable as well as the exciting and competitive environment in the company—which allows for constantly changing work and new opportunities.
How do you define success in the workplace?
Creating an environment employees are constantly learning, collaborating and innovating is success to me. Even better is having a motivated and inspired team that wants to come to work every day and contribute to the company’s success.
Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?
It is to be fully present in the moment—whether it is at work or home. You can accomplish a lot more when you are fully engaged.
Who would you want to swap jobs with for a month and why?
A customer service rep. It would help me to continue to understand what our customers like and what their pain points are with our products.
